Snow makes for soft crashes. :)
I lawn-darted my Polaris last weekend and it's perfectly fine, thanks to 30" of soft snow.
Bare ground would have totaled it for sure.

Looks nice.
Those are big ailerons so I'd go light on the deflection of those and dial in a bunch of expo. if you have that available. You've got lots of rudder there too so go easy.

I think that just suggests that you can't hand launch it.
It sounds like the plane needs to be moving above the prop's stall speed before flying.

The thing is that an o-ring fits nicely into the rotor hub (like on other helis I've worked on) so I figured why not throw one in there, then the washer and other o-ring per the schematic.
