    Looks like that last move saved the camera... at least you can be happy it wasn't worse?

    Definitely. Honestly I'm not in the least upset. I did something stupid and payed for it.. The most expensive single part that needed to be replaced was the ESC and those are only $13. Needed two dirty plates, the top plate and some bobbins and after a few hours work, she'll be good as new.

    No pain, no gain... as they say.

    You should get a medal for breaking it so badly.

    General reaction from people who've been able to break these frames:

    Exactly! I was more in awe over how badly it broke...

    It's all rebuilt now.

    Imagine how they feel when they have a bad crash and have to spend less than $20\shipped for a new arm. And its normally shipped in 24 hours or less...

    I usually send free stuff if people crash bad enough. When I had a Hoverthings frame, Tom usually gave me "Buy one get one free" arms. I like being able to help people out if something shitty happens.

    Nope, just a HERO2 strapped to the front.

    That stuff was pink packing foam I was using as landing gear.

    Congrats dude I've only managed to break an arm or a prop so far. Never damaged a motor or electronics. Maybe next time.
