Default i know what i did wrong...tooo late

after flying my exi 450 pro belt i am actually not crashing and learning to actually fly.i replaced all cyclics with metal gear and had everything set up nicely.was reading and wanted to set my idle up to 95% instead of the 85% i had currently been using to handle wind a little bit better.i spooled up without checking my servo movements!forgot that when i switched to the metal gear servos i also had to reverse my servos in my computer settings.when i changed my throttle curve i went into the wrong saved settings and now they are moving down instead of up for my cyclics..........to late........it did not lift off at mid stick and i lowered my throttle stick and it began to lift......tipped and destroyed main blades,flybar,main gear and tail boomm!live and learn..never spool up without quick preflight check.no one was hurt in the incident except my pride.just wanted to tell people so they dont do the same.it was really dialed in good before that too.oh well.one thing is sure,im getting quicker at setting the heli up,just need to remember to check tx too!
