49 10/3/2010 Protos 6s1p Turnigy 2 2.5min Gentle sports flying in the wind. Crashed hard coming out of a tic toc in the dusk light and not knowing whicfh way up she was. Damage - Blades, boom, main shaft, flybar and canopy mounts. I will also change the feathering shaft and flybar carrier if they look damaged. Same with the tail shaft. Grips, main and tail, look OK but I will double check these when I take the head apart. Main shaft bearing seems fine as do the tail bearings. I'm a little worried about the servos, all of them appear to move smoothly but I will bench test them hard as they were unable to recentre as the blades were quite literally buried in the clay! Battery is mildy taco'd but seems OK. 1017mAh

30 9/25/2010 Blade 400 3s1p Turnigy 1 4.5min POST FLIGHT - Think I should go back to the 3D pro blades as the white blades are much easier to see and I really still need some visual prompts when learning backwards circuits.
