Default Put her in today

Third flight of the day, things were going great. I got hit by the dreaded YGE LVC syndrome. I'll post the vid shortly.

The short end of the story, I finished my flip in TH, got her legs under her and gave full pos pitch to bleed the HS off as she dropped from 5' or so. Landed rough on the right side skid and the broke clean off at the mounts. It sounds bad on the vid, but going through it so far, I think my skids are the only complete loss. The blades have a very slight ding at the roots, the canopy has seen better days (not many though!) and I broke one break-away tab.

This thing is a tank!
