Default Well guys i have bad news

This is a post that i was hoping never to wright but i have to. Yesterday i went to the field and was flying my new 700N when about 3 feet off the runway my battery unplugged and it went nose first into the pavment. To add insult to injury it chicken dance for about 30-45 seconds and the only reason it stopped was the fuel line broke and ran out of fuel. As of right now it seems to be a total loss. Dont know what im going to do as of yet the more i dig into it the more stuff is broken or to badly bent up to use. Just wanted to let you all know to make sure that you battery and battery leads are properly secured and dont take that stuff for granted i learned the hard way. All i can say right know is that im pretty mad with my self for not checking it before takeoff. Buy the way any one want to buy a 600N

Man rob i dont know i have a hell of a shopping list. I went on readyheli and the total for all the stuff that they had (not everything that i needed) it was well over 350 dollars. thats why i was thinking rekit would be cheaper in long run i think. If you still want to know what all i need just let me know and i will get a list together and send it to you.

Well dont think your the only one who has had their helicopter come unplugged. My electric heli came unplugged and fell 40 feet to breaking the tail, landing gear, blades, head, and gyro. Over $100 damage to a $145 heli. Sorry for the loss. Hope to see it fly again some day.
