Default Down goes David!

Goliath (gravity) won today. Had about 50 hovers and slight maneuvers was trying to do a momentum turn and wasn't watching my pitch and hit the ground! About $25 in damage tail boom was bent main gear stripped, and a cyclic arm was lost somewhere. It may be a silly question but since it hit the ground from about 2 or 3 feet up and I hit throttle hold before it even hit the ground (dirt patch) should I still do a trim flight when I fix it or would it be ok not to once its put back together? Or better yet is there a checklist I should do after a crash other than looking over it? OR... OR... is it not worth the repair and just get a Goblin 700?

Why not? Trim flight only takes a minute. Biggest thing, Don't Give Up!!

Not to mention the trimflight, but at that level You should check the servos. I would bet there is at least one servo gears stripped.

I have crashed my Blade 230S very hard five times in 130 flights. I have broken 5 tail booms, 5 main gears, 3 tail rotors, broke a main frame in half, and lost 2 pitch links. I have completely rebuilt the heli after the last crash because of the broken frame. Each time the electronics have been fine and the servos were not harmed. This is a great little heli to learn basic orientations and inverted flight on! I have had a great time learning with it. I suggest taking the 2 minutes of time to do the trim flight any time you have taken the tail off or replaced any parts. It is easy to do and the heli flys great after you do it. I hope you learn as much from your Blade 230S as I have over the past few months!

I agree, its an amazing little machine. I have build 9 scale modells out of it, including multiblade main rotor modells 3- to 5-blades, fenestron tail and notar tail. They all perform fine, and whenever i crashed it was my fault.
