Did you hit throttle hold when this happened?This is always the right thing to do when the heli spins out of control like that.The heli will stop spinning and you can auto her to the ground.Even if your not good at auto,s the crash damage will be a lot less.

yer but the belt might have came loose when you was in the air not on the ground but i know what you mean about checking everything over good. sometimes the last things you would think of checking become the big problems .

Yeah my last time out I flew 3 packs and on the forth about 3 minutes into the flight she started making a strange chirping sound. Decided to land her and turned out the belt stretched a bit. Tightened up and good to go. But I'll check her over before flight and listen for the telltale chirping sound which I can only imagine is the belt slapping the inside of the tail boom.

You know if you had of checked before flight.That you would have the answer as to if was loose before you started.Or if it cames loose in flight.
Preflight check all the time.
