1st Caliber 30

Mechanical problem yet unknow

strange crash but totally my fault: when hovering the heli was falling
on it's right side, I checked too fast and trim to the opposite (6 or 7
point to the left), then I fly 5 min and loose control. One more time,
if something change, land, cut off and verify everything, damn
Strange because, I did not loose the Tail or main mast, nor tail boom.
The biggest problem is the right main frame (brokenat red line),
but it can be repair. see fix here
