LOL! Ok, it was'nt THAT bad. Was practising inverted hurricane's and was going pretty good, but came in to low on my last pack and panicked and it hit HARD. Unfortunatly my brain forgot to shout THROTTLE HOLD quick enough, and instead it shouted PUT THROTTLE STICK TO LOW! like i was in normal mode.
It was only for a couple second's, but that was enough.
At a glance: All shaft's bent.
Main+tail blade's.
Flybar+paddle's.
Boom.
Lower frame.
Flybar cage.
Main gear.
Landing gear.
Canopy.
Maybe tail servo.
All other electric's survived. (somehow)
Money's a little tight right now as the Mrs will be haveing our second child in like 2 week's, so i look's like i'll be takin a break for a little while.

speed stick are you running a seperate gyro with the GU-365? also did you mod the head or get a proper flybarless head? Can anyone point me in the direction of how to mod my trex450 head for flybarless?

Thanks

no, I am not running a seperate tail gyro! And it holds fine, through inverted backwards tail holds good! No I did not mod the head for proper flybarless! I have a way of doing it myself that I like and has always worked perfect for me! I was the first one to do 3D on a heli without any Flybarless unit onboard! Just all mechanical!

Thanks,
Devin
