Take this bird away before it chews up my other hand! Evil or Very Mad

I realize the accident was my fault through inattention and negligence, but this Helicopter still represents something EVIL to me!

I've repacked it already!

If interested, email me with your location and I'll let you know my shipping cost to you, which you may reimburse me with a Cashier's Check.

When I get your check, I'll ship the Helicopter.

FORGET IT...I'M GIVING MY BIG LAMA TO MY BROTHER-IN-LAW!

Sorry it didn't work out for you Hal. I think we've all been there done it at least once. Crying or Very sad Seems to be part of the learning process in the hobby and makes safety stand out foremost. It happened to me and many as well early on so I established a safety routine I strictly follow now even more so with the CP birds.

It doesn't matter the helicopter they can all do that and it's sometimes the hard way of learning. Maybe we could come up with a good safety checklist/routine for you to follow?

Maybe put it up for a bit a let things cool down and start over with a good safety routine?? I realize the hobby isn't for everyone so certainly understand. I feel bad you had such a bad experience Crying or Very sad

Hal, my Big Lama did this to me once and it simply convinced me of the need for a safety routine which has paid off ever since. Since I fly CP ships and as Tom mentioned that can mame and kill. Safety on the pilots part is of utmost priority. Here's my little epsiaode back when.... (not an incident since)......

It was much worse than it looked and after it was cleaned up and ointment put on. I lost layers of skin. It was an eye opener and like I said never happened again.

i think FD is right on... put it up, take a deep breath, and give it some thought Wink. they are great heli's to fly, and like every heli... they require a learning curve, that also involves learning a routine of safety. Smile

Hal, you're blaming the chopper...

Would you get rid of a 'scope if it fell on you?

FFS it's operator error! Laughing

Hal ,if you get further into this hobby events will take place that you will have no control over .I once had a blade miss my head by a hair .It wasn't my fault . These things have such danger associated with them inherently .It's probably more risky than boxing or fencing ,which I can vouch for .Expect the unexpected and stay calm. :shock:

Yeah? Well in that case, THIS will be my next Helicopter!

The only worry I'll have is to be sure and stand out of the line of fire of those AirSoft projectiles coming from the tank's main gun!
