Crashed the 380 today on my last lipo of the day. Was doing a piro flip circuit and didn't land one correctly upright. I was fairly low and the heli just tail dived down. Shredded the boom, broke a skid and two servo arms, need a replacement cyclic servo and main blades.

My first crash in a while that was not caused by a mechanical, I think it happened because I've not been flying enough lol :)

Replaced G380's ESC and fixed the G500, flights went well.

The G700 in flight 1 started to twitch (up & down), I thought it might be due to the tail belt guide (I hot glued the spring pin into the hole as it pop out previously). Looking closer at it, it looked like one of the servos was twitching. Took the heli home to check over and can't recreate it on the bench or find anything!

Not a good day, 2 shutdowns on the 380 and the 500 swash link broke. Done 3 autos today into a high wheat field, the crops took all the impact. Damage report 500 main blades and link. Still need to work out the issue with the 380.

Could find anything wrong with the new lipo so tested the 380 with a old battery I know has no issues. First flight no issues, second flight it shutdown again. Not sure what the issue is as the ESC is not beeping, cut off is disabled, I still had control of the Heli so the external bec still had power. Been lucky again, no damage. Auto went well.

Replaced 700 tail belt due to small rip found last week, test flight went well.

380, got 3 new lipos. Heli shutdown with first new lipo. Auto into wheat field went well, no damage. The crop was high enough to take the damage.

Setup flight after crash. Went well, damage from crash was main blades, boom support bolt & nuts x2 and 1 link. Not bad considering the heli went in invert with TH.
