Oh, and you'll need credits, too. They don't use $US on Caprica or in the BSG universe...

And then, at that low, low price, you'll very likely need (or soon will) a new $85 AS3X board, servos, motor, etc...

At least I was able to get my 130's flying smoothly despite all this terminology that I just really do not understand.

Cool. You want chocolate or vanilla for that herculean effort?

Really? That's interesting. The D gear has nowhere to go...

Nah, I'll find one with a good board, I can replace servos and everything else. I actually enjoy fixing helis as much as flying, it's a sickness, heh.

He is probably talking about the C gear, but the D gear can get pushed over the shoulder, causing the tail rotor shaft to stick out the left side of the tail.

I think a basket case would be a gamble on this heli, the parts add up quick.

I had 2 seconds left on my timer and clipped some palm fronds. Hope I didn't strip the C gear.

Looks ok. Guess I will find out on the next battery.

I think I will mark the gear and the TT with a sharpie so I can tell at glance if the gear spins on the shaft.

Now this on the other hand looks like a great deal. If the board is in fact the problem you could probably send it to HH, they would probably replace it for free.

I thought that, too, but there'd be no "popping back in place" and immediately fly it again with that rounded out D gear D hole... Still, even if he meant the C gear, how does the C gear "pop out", yet immediately be flyable again? If his TT is that short and/or the boom pulled so far out that it can disengage from the C gear, then he's got much bigger problems than "popping it back in place".
