Default First crash!!!

So I'm outside lfying it back and forth and doing some easy piroettes when I got bold and decided to turn the heli 540 degrees so it would stop nose-in. Well I got away with it the first couple of times until the 3rd time I got crossed up. It drifted left and out of sheer reflex I gave it left cyclic (when I should have given it right cyclic) and I plowed it into the ground sideways. [sm=punching.gif]

Damage report:
Both blades
One blade grip
Feathering shaft

Fixed it right back up and gonna fly some more tommorrow.

Aside from practicing ALOT is there anything to do to prevent another brain fart like this one?

At least theres not alot of damage, I too did the same thing when I first started piroettes. Like they say " its not if you crash, its when you crash"
