Damage Assessment

Had a very bad crash last Sunday, 4th Jan 2009.

The problem could be due to:

  1. Broken pressure tube (connected to the muffler)
  2. Clutch issue, broken or something, releasing the blades from the engine

Lesson learn..
1. After few move, should stop & check before continue to fly.
2. Need to train for autoratation during inverted.
3. Fly higher for new tricks!
4. Don't panic. probably I can minimize the damage or avoid the crash if have fast and correct reaction.
