Working on helis inside is not the mistake here. So, you haven't addressed the issue by going outside.

A couple issues.
1. No heli should reach full speed in 2 secs and more like 8+ with soft start.
2. Throttle hold should always be on if not at the fight line and about to take off.
3. Depending on bench work being performed, motor should be disconnected

I've learned a few things here, thank you. I suppose its much more dangerous just getting into your car to get to the field, but wow, what an eye opener.

Wow, what a great thread!

Being a relative noob to the hobby of RC helicopters, I nonetheless have a background as a pilot and know that rotating blades will maim or worse, kill, depending on, of course, size and rotating speed. And a poke in the eye by a prop from something as small as a Proto X quad can, in the least, scratch a cornea.

While the largest bird I have right now is a fixed pitch MJX F45, I am always conscious of the rotating blades of all of my helis. . . . .

Thanks again for the info!

Bringing it in for a landing on a gusty day and lost control about 10 feet out. It went over my head and I ducked down at the last minute.

Flying around my living room and just got a little frisky with the sticks and dove my MCPXBL into my face. Thankfully it wasn't worse.
