Default I flew & had my 1st crash...

Pics of the aftermath below, I hit a sign and the heli fell into the bushes. It was my 4th time at the field with the heli, 8th battery pack overall, and I got a little too bold while trying some inverted maneuvers... To make matters worse, I didn't find the panic button in time, I should have practiced locating it ... I managed to hit the throttle hold though and remarkably the only damage was one blade grip, the feathering shaft was bent, canopy, and the boom. Nothing else was even scratched and the electronics are fine, from the sound when I hit the sign you would have expected more carnage! Pics of the damage:
