Default First Crash.....ever

Guess I had to get it under my belt. Thumb did opposite of what brain told it to do. Doing forward tumbles 10-15 feet of the ground. Came out right-side up brain said positive collective, thumb pulled negative. Such a not eventful pitiful crash and yet pretty pricey.... $217!!

That's not bad considering you destroyed the main, tail blades as well as the boom.

Naah, what are you whining about.

Break out the JB weld, some gorilla tape, and CA glue and get that bird up in the air.!!!

You may need to buff a few scratches out of the canopy as well but I would leave them for "character".

All kidding aside, sorry for your loss.

Hitting some gravel with the tail of my Atom 500 set me back $140 Entirely new tail, boom, and main blades (the kicked up gravel caused leading edge damage on both!! .... So those costs are not too bad really!!

$217 isn't bad at all considering most of that is new blades and a new boom. Back in the day I planted a couple of rows of Trex 500s (they nevery grew...) and the crash costs were typically in that range.

I think the Goblin's component setup actually does a pretty good job protecting electronics which is where crashes can get really pricey!

I hear ya. It was funny though. Right before the flight I was explaining to another guy that has not flew a gobby how the break away boom works. HE told me it was bogus!! As soon as I hit I ran out there grabbed the boom and shouted "see it works". He yelled back 'What about the big gash in the side!".... didn't see that!

If I would have hit differently it would have survived..
