    Sorry for your loss, but when you crash one, you do it right.

    Ouch. Nasty. Sorry for your loss.

    Was it a Futaba servo and were you using plastic geared servos and horns on what appears to be a 100cc airframe?

    the throttle servo, it was a plastic gear, and the wheels in the background belongs to a friends 800cc piper cub powered by a valach motor!
