Damage was front & back umbrella gears, fin cracked, $60 worth, but they are getting hard to find, had to ship from USA to Aus, $58 so doubled up + a couple of extras, looking at what was around, not sure how many repairs I have left . has anyone put any other mechanics in this fuslage?
The parts turned up during the week, a couple of evenings and it was ready to go, test flight went much better than expected, given I had to use a 13 th pinion to replace the worn 12 th. Then a couple more flights at a fun fly, best it has ever flown, recieving many great comments from heli guy's and plankers
