The Crash - Flat Battery

Caliber 30 rebuilt after crash (29 December 2003)

Replaced:

Another Crash - 'L' Lever broke in flight

15/04/04, This time the crash took out most of the heli, as you can see below.  I think the cause was the L lever breaking during the flight as I suddenly lost most of the control over the collective and cyclic; the plastic had most likely been weakened from previous crashes.  Shame because she always flew very steadily.  Anyway, that's it for this bird, not worth replacing the parts and I am going to get a Raptor 50 as my everyday heli for trying out new things.
