    Oooo I broke it REAL good ;)

    Well, don't go into spins you can't pull out of.

    Quick test in the cold after work to play with some new PID's and I decided to mess around. Turns out I was closer to the ground then I thought...







    Ahh well, live and learn. Part of the hobby, right?

    Already ordered:

    1x Clean plate
    2x Dirty plates
    2x 30A Afro's
    More 8x5 HQ E-Props (LOVE these!)
    1x 3300mAh battery (I make it a rule to order a new battery when placing a HK order)

    Umm ouch. I turned my quad off at 50m up because I didn't have proper control and I didn't want a fly away. I only broke arms, props and nylon bolts though. Yours is very cringe worthy! You should sell the ESCs (or donate them) to someone for parts.

    Haha, thanks for the offer. I already bought all the parts I need to put it back together.

    Byro I bought 2 more ESC's but I'm only sure of one (the one that's taco'ed in half! LOL) being toast. Can't hurt to have an extra though.

    I wouldn't advocate pushing known damaged parts into someone else's build. That's messed up.

    Yeah, you broke it real good, I was going to suggest duct-tape, but that might not be enough this time around.

    I meant for the electrical components not as a working esc.

    Use a separate BEC and use it on a airplane. Then if it conks out, just say you had a bad fuel mix.
