What happened to that Telemaster Mike? Sorry for your loss. Looks like it hit something very hard... very fast.

I think a 3# rubber mallet will pound that lipo back into shape just fine. Of course you could just chuck it up into your vise at home a give it a good yank.

I sure hope your AXI survived just fine.

Was it under power (motor running) at the time, or gliding when it happened?

it was full throttle, it just wasnt climbing, and he had it heaading towarda house, so he started the tunr, hoping itd climb, no luck, it was looking to aim at a huge tree, (still only 25 ft off the ground maybe little hihger) in atemped to avoid the tree that was behind the big tree, that i didnt see till we walked to it,, it snapped into a death roll, and crunch... this was the guy that totaled my old zagi 400, the down throw sucked on it, so after he got it inverted there wanst enought room to roll back level, , but he can fly, just need to get a plane that better suited to his flying styles, (point and shoot) and the zagi eating earth wasnt to bad i got to make a home made slope with the scraps haha

Lorks some nasty ones there Kiwi and pit! That heli one is a classic - apparently two pro pilots were given the challenge of destroying two helis which were paid for by messageboard members around the world ... or something ..... ah well, some people
