3 pilots, 3 helis, 3 Crashes.(fusion 50, Vision 50, 450 pro) Sad day for us AZ pilots we went in one after another and i told them the 1 2 3 rule after i crashed. they didnt believe me, but it came true! My favorite heli went in after the tail blew out 2 feet off the deck :(

Looking at the pictures my first thought would have been a boom strike. Unfortunate most expensive are the blades.
