Default When Air Speed or Parts Fall Off, The Ground Shall Smithe Thee, CJ 4:11

<ul>[*]WHEN THE <u>AIR SPEED</u><u> </u>or <u>PARTS FALLITH OFF</u>, the GROUND COMES UP AND SMITHE THEE![*][*]I have experienced Main Blade failure today while setting up the Futaba 401 gyro on my New 600 Nitro Pro. I had just ran 1 tank of fuel setting the blade tracking and all of the linkages. During the lift off all was rock solid and steady, Hover was perfect with no float or drift then it happened all $%^&amp; broke loose sending shrapnell in all directions and the bulk of the Heli dropping like a rock. During the radial distruction a part of the main blade took out the canopy and took the reciever with it! this left the engine running with no kill switch function!, Thank goodness for a long stick to pull the fuel line. I have learned a costly lesson, there SHALLNOTBEWOODENBLADES on MYHELICOPTERS![*]I made the ill faited choice to use the Wooden Blades only for initial set up, I know better to Stick bang with Woodies, Who would have thought during set up with no abrupt maneuvers total separation ?[*]The following is a list of the dearly departed parts of which all were 100% new, which gave their ALL![*][*]50H047 Main Shaft 10x201x29.3mm (1)[*]50H045 Lock collar 10x15x7mm (1)[*]T74004 M4 set screw M4x4mm (2)[*]50B6800ZZ-2 Bearing 680ZZ 10x19x5mm (1)[*]50h042-1 lINKAGE BALL m3X4 4.75X8.68mm (3)[*]50B165-1 Metal Elevator Lever[*]T74004 M4 set screw M4x4mm (2)[*]50T194-03 front Umbrella gear (1)[*]FrontDrive Gear assymbly shown as Item # 166 no part number in this book[*]50T203 3KCF Tail Blades[*]50T085 Tail Boom 20x21.5x625mm (1)[*]Skid Pipes 9x310mm[*]Hitech servos HS635HB (2)[*]Futaba R617FS reciever 7 chanel[*]Linkage rod "D", 60.5mm x3 with ends[*]When Air Speed or Parts Fallith OFF, The Ground come up and Smite thee!
