Default joker crash

I recently crashed my joker from about 30 feet up - lost orientation and went in pretty hard. I was expecting a mess, but the damage was rather minimal - the skid clearly absorbed most of the impact - sort of funny really... this heli is built tough!

I crashed my Diabolo last Saturday. My skids looked just like yours.
Ordered the parts on Monday and got them on Friday. Good turnaround on parts.

You are right, these babys are built like tanks. The cost of repairs on my Diabolo was less than on my 600pro!! Which also went in recently.

I must have done something to the heli gods. Must sacrifice something.....Hmmmm how about a plank?
