Default [CRASH] X7 goes in at over 100mph...

I'm currently attributing this crash to either the plastic servo arms, or a link that broke. It happened after a speed run, rolled 90 and pushed the nose to come around into an inverted hurricane, something snapped and it flopped around before hitting the ground at 100 mph.

Thankfully, Gaui has built an amazing machine. The entire core is intact, packs are fine, the main gear is fine. Even the whole head is fine: grips, spindle, grip arms, and swash. The tail slider rod is fine for those who were wondering if it would hold up. lmao!

So far at quick glance: Boom/TT, front TT gear, tail hub, landing gear, and main shaft. No worse than a normal crash, actually less, but you wouldn't have thought that if you saw it hit the way it did!

Finally, that new car smell is gone, now I can relax next time flying
