A long day at MK. I had intended to got to Jason's funfly in North Notts, but the forecast showed rain all day there and clear at MK for the morning. I didn't expect to be long so didn't bother taking lunch.
Woods was already there. He had a few flights and then crashed both his Goblins. Not much damage, but enough to end his day early.
I flew almost non-stop, getting some good practice in.
Having been at the field for 10 hours with no food, I got a bit tired, which turned out to be a problem. During a rolling auto, I just didn't have enough headspeed to complete it and the heli hit the deck. Not too hard, but enough to break the skids, blades, boom and a blade grip arm. It'll be a relatively cheap/quick fix, but shouldn't have happened.
At least tomorrow is too wet n windy for flying, so it's a build day for me.
