I am glad to hear that I am not the only one that crashes. I have broken about 8 blades, one of the landing gears and dropped one end of the battery box off the rail, the screw came out of it. I have been practicing with a Chinook on the simulator, it is not cx so I figure if I can control it I should be able to handle mine better. I have been getting parts from rc11.com on ebay. Had my blades and battery in 5 working days. I am in Newport News Virginia, unfortunately none of my local area hobby shops carry Walkera products. That seems odd to me since Walkera is supposed to be the most popular brand in the world. I have always liked the CH46 Sea Knight, I flew in one in the Navy and it was my favorite of all of the helo's that I worked with.
Thanks for responding.
