Belt CP Flight #30 - A rare crash #9

Posted 05-08-2009 at 09:24 AM by nasukaren

Took my BCP out last night to try out its settings with my new DX6i and apparently things weren't dialed in perfectly. The bird hit the ground and stripped two of the three cyclic servos. Sigh.... A rare crash for my usually super-stable Belt CP.

Took the occasion to replace the E-sky servos with SG90s / HXT900s.

Before the crash and unrelated to it (but I'll include it in the crash count), my main gear worked itself free of the one-way bearing and was free-wheeling. I...

So in a fit of anger, I ordered a DX6i and some AR6100s. Just installed the first AR6100 into my Belt CP and flew it around today.

I f'd up. I called someone a prick in a social group in which I was an active member. While I did not name the person nor, was it said in a context from which someone could infer to whom I was referring, I still should not have done it.

For the good of the hobby, HF and the social group, I left the group.

Now the good news. I got word my Joker3 shipped yesterday. All the parts are in and ready to go. Maybe, if the Joker gets in, I can spend next Friday nght building...
