Default Crashed my eXo

So there I was, out at the rc field minding my own business when the ground decided to jump up and smack my poor little exo(a.k.a. DUMB THUMB) So I must admit that I am rather impressed with how well this handled my indecisiveness. Lack of commitment, had a flashback to trying same maneuver with another 500. 1-rotor hub, 4- 3mm screws, 1 set of servo arms, 1 servo gear set. and a pair of KBDD mains.

Oh no, not that beautifull heli!
Anyway even with a bad crash it was good it was a dumb thumb rather then mechanical ore electrical failing in the air.
How much damage did the heli take eventually?

Sorry about your crash, Mike! It seems to be all the rage these days.

Held up well because you were luck enough to land on grass, that makes a big difference.

main bearings are fine, main shaft is usable. one radial bearing in main grip, and one in one of the tail grips. main blades took most of the impact.
