Blades not enough bolted.

It was a tail boom hit, heli was going to fall on it&39;s side because it was in high
grass, recover on the other side made the blade moving Only one blade hit the canopy. ;-) ,
blade have a small dent, pitch arm servo was bent a little..raptor canopy has absorb the shock.
Nothing ;-) Nothing ;-) Nothing ;-)

1st Caliber 30

Mechanical problem yet unknow

strange crash but totally my fault: when hovering the heli was falling
on it&39;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
