Avg. flight time
Was enjoying the sunshine along with a few fixies. 3rd flight and the cyclic stops responding. Nothing I could do, just hit TH and watched it go in.
A pushrod on the head was off and the link was split, and there was nothing in the logs. All the servos still work, so it must have been the link splitting. I only replaced those 2 weeks ago and they passed the pre session check, so it must have just broken.
Nothing I could have done any different, I'll just have to accept it happens. I don't have any spares so it'll be expensive this time.

The bits have been ordered and should be here on Thursday. Not too expensive in the end, the trex seems to be a real survivor. The weather doesn't look great for the weekend, but it should be good enough to finish the rebuild and test fly.
