Ok, it happened. I was hoping I get 50 flights before the first crash, but it was only 15.

Tail hit ground from too low piro flip. Tail spin out of control but was right side up. I added power to gain altitude for an auto but realized main blade was also damaged. Hit hold and lose all head speed, it nose dive to hard ground.

Damages:
Blades
Main shaft
Torque tube
Landing gear
busted canopy
bend in motor mount.

Sorry, Bob's in Hawaii so no video.

Good news ATD perform as designed.
