I must admit that I enjoy my little WLToys 911 .... and the 959 Quad ... plus the various 'toy quads' I was given to review ... but the 450 is far more challenging.

I rebuilt ... new link etc. I even fitted a better sized servo for tail ... new ESC as the old was causing the motor to not be steady ...

All was much better and I started to do hops to about 2m high and back down again ... she was getting into the typical newbies toilet bowl effect ... which needs time and practice to learn again control subtlety ...
I was just getting used to it when BHAM !! She dropped onto her side ... cartwheeled ..

Main shaft
Blades
Tail boom
Feathering shaft
Flybar
and the main rotor ball link that had come unclipped causing the crash !

She's rebuilt again ... just got to build up the courage to try again !!
