after lots of hovering, there is finally a bad flight, well not too bad i guess.
i was at the feild at around 7:30ish and hovered my heli for a full battery, and it was great!! then i had a second flight, where the wind was not very helpful. a random gust came and the heli got forced away from me and onto the ground. the blades hit the boom and took off a piece of my huey kit. no damage to the boom though. the baldes got cut a bit too.

That's too bad Gary. This seems to be a common problem with the SR. It's very sensitive to "aggressive" landings. The blades slap down and strike the tail boom. My friend has had this happen twice already and his landings were quick but not significantly hard. Nice thing is that the blades are pretty cheap, although RD keeps buying them up at MSC ;-)
