X7FZ Down!


Well, it`s been a while (July 2017) since my last crash, and today I had one. I was cutting the short grass on the edge of the runway at the flying club, and I cut a little too low. Yep... dropped it into the ground, right on the head button.

When it happened, I really thought "this is going to be expensive". But I was pleasantly surprised, when I started looking the helicopter over on the table.

The damage was very superficial, and consisted of nothing but one servo horn being stripped, and the main gear losing a couple of teeth. The main blades weren`t even damaged. In fact, the field suffered more damage than my helicopter did.... LOL. A large part of that may be due to all the rain we have been getting, which softened up the ground. But I`ll take it.

Hopefully, I can go another few years before the next one, but that`s all part of the game. I have to admit though.... that crop circle is pretty nice. ;)
