Feel for that guy. Gearbox stripped is what it sounded like.......soon as he switched to idleup. Sucks.

Video is 2 years old already. Yes a bit close for something like that to happen but good response nevertheless. Looks like it happened during the maiden flight. Lets be honest - many of us specifically years ago did take off with similar distance. Its a good reminder that we better be more careful.

Good reminder!

Watch him react, the heli moves so quick that it is in the ground a second or two before he has actually moved away.

Looks like a link popped off. That sucks and have had similar incidents happen. I spent a lot of time fixing only for something to go wrong again. I was so mad and frustrated.
