Not even the motor mount made it. I told him that he didn't have to pay for it, because it wasn't his fault. He is now a Synergy factory pilot so I should collect.
Damn you would have needed a broom to clean that up...

I'm embarest about this one.

I was working at Horizon (96-97) when I got a JR Ergo helicopter to fly. I had a total of 6 flights on it. 3 of them were crashes from mechanical failure. In fact the #2,#4,#6 fight had the issues. I had told them at that time that the helicopter couldn't handle my style of flying (3D) and would have mechanical issues, but they persisted. After the last crash, I started throwing the "dead" helicopter around the feild in anger. I then realized I had perfectly good radio gear and engine in there. So I took it home and removed the stuff. I then put the heli in my driveway and ran over it with my car 3 times. Len Sabato (JR manager at horizon) herd about this, and he asked to see it. I showed the "carcus" to him and he then said,

"We can fix it"...

WTF.... No we can't and No we won't!!!!!

I was flying Miniture Aircraft Helicopters the whole time I worked there. But when I was at fun flys they asked me to not say ware I worked.

haha this thread saved my start for the main at the NvsS race on the 5th. i was up on the drivers stand and my pitman was having a hard time trying to start my truck. checked the servos and what not. to see if i could help. then he changed the glow plug. primed the engine and still nothing. another guy that new revos came over to help. and still nothing. a good 3minutes or so go by. and i yell down. "hey mcdart, check the tank" mcdart was the 2nd guy that came over to help. he looks up at me in disbelief. and they fuel it up. and it starts within seconds of being on the starter box
