Default MCPx hit me in the face.

I had major eye surgery on Friday. I have stitches in my eyes and it
Freaking hurts. I am taking time released morphine followed by
Vicodin as needed. About 9 I decided I wanted a good nights sleep so I also took an ambien.

Now that I am properly medicated, it seemed a good time to try and front flip my MCPx. In the living room I nailed the Christmas tree. I picked up the heli and let my wife know, "I got this!".

I did flip the heli and it came back and hit me in the mouth. Now my wife knows for sure I am an idiot. It was a nice cut. I washed it with alcohol and closed it up with super glue. Rock on!

Don't you mean "I hit myself in the face with my mCPX"?

You started out with eye surgery. I thought the mCPX did that to you..

Seroiusly, though, these little buggers can and will do some damage. I let mine get me in the bicep when I was doing the initial setup and messing around with it, and it left a nasty little welt that stayed with me for five or six days. Now that it's brushless, I think I'll keep it at least a dozen feet or so away from me at all times.....

I'm not sure that prescription opioids, not to mention sleeping meds, and RC helicopters mix very well .

Just be glad it didn't hit you in the eye...

Not while on morphine!

So to sum this all up, after having eye surgery, you got as high as a kite on not one, but 2 pain killers and then attempted to fly an rc heli AFTER taking ambien? That had bad news written all over it dude!!! How else could it have turned out?

Well, here we are in the heli-safety forum. That is a priceless story.

My girlfriend flew my MCPX and almost crashed it into us, I grabbed it from the sky though. Got minor cuts on my hand, we are talking almost like a paper cut. I wouldn't say it was unsafe but I could see it if hit your face with the softer tissue it could do more damage. As for hand damage, I highly recommend you just grab it, those little plastic blades dont hurt.

Those little plastic blades can do more than you think. I caught the tip of my finger on them while it was in idle up and it sliced through my nail and down the whole tip of my finger. Damn thing bled like crazy!!
