Well, it finally happened. I am still learning to hover and had my first crash. I did not do the basics before i started. I did not do a pre-check before trying. I figured that since i was not going to be above 3 ft, that the training gear would be enough. Boy, was i wrong. I have the training gear for the 450 and it looked sturdy enough.
I raised the trex up to approx 3' just fine. I started to turn it and then found that 2 of the servos needed reversed. Since I was close to the earth that it bit me before i had a chance to correct this. But as soon at i saw it happening , i knew what was going on.. But I got lucky. The center hub for the training gear got broke in half and one of the spokes apparently flipped, somehow and left a crease across the boom of the trex. Nothing else was damaged.
