Question 2nd flight second crash need help

iv crashed my heli again, only this time it was in mid air.. i did a back flip then hovered inverted for a bit. then i fliped it back over, halfway through the flip, something popped of, & it came crashing down to earth. after having a look at the damage iv noticed that the ball link on the main blade grip was gone, so im guessing that was what poped of, the problem iv got is i cant seem to find a ball link for a main blade grip, without buying the entire main grips. obviously i dont want new main blade grips, i just want the long ball link that screws into the main grips. i cant find any anyware, so any idea were i could buy some would be much appreciated also a brand new set of sab carbons, one is ok but the other is totaled so much for that another 100 this is turning out to be more expencive than if i bought a porche

Jack, When you rebuild, maybe you should slow done a wee bit. Try flying it like a Toyota corolla, until your sure that the heli and you are ready.

Much cheaper in the long run.

ultraviolet i can fly no problem, this accident happened in midair, bad luck a ball joint poped of and it fell out the sky from 30 feet spiraling as it went, it did cause some damage. but im more annoyed at the ball links on the main grips, not been able to buy them seperate from buying new blade grips.. that is unbeleivable as you need to spend 30qid for a ball end. as for the rest of the crash, i didn't wreck my servo's or my spartan the canopy & even the main shaft isn't bent every think else is already fixed apart from the main blade grip ball end cheers JeromeF il try them tomorow...

Yes, I know, I was just upset because I learned about it yesterday...But believe me, sports cars and RC helicopters may both be expensive, but not by any sense in the same league....
I guess I'll have to wait to buy my 600N

Maybe you should sell the Porsche since cash is so tight.
