The List So Far...

1 Set of blades.... one looks ok but the hit on it was hard enough to brake a grip so I will bin it too.
2 Grips
1 Fly Bar, Bent
1 Main Gear, stirpped
1 Leg, snapped
1 Feathering Shaft, bent
1 Tail housing... Just sheared the locating pin in the mold, but I have a spare..
more to add.....just finding the correct names.

Trying to fly too fast backards towards myself when it just weather cocked on me, I had to duck as it shot over my head, I spun around but I was too slow to catch it before it hit in at about 30ks an hour

Nice job Mike!

I've been there so many times and it always amazes me that most of the time repair costs are not too bad.

What amazes me even more is that your LG survived completely unscathed!

When you get the urge / cash you should add the alu 'bling'. I reckon it would have survived that crash... you'd still have done blades and mainshaft but the holders would be OK... and the levers.

Hope you're up and running soon.
