    Hey all,

    I have noticed a lot of threads where someone asks for help - describing a bunch of symptoms - and then after a bunch of people respond - they inevitably say "oh yeah - I crashed a day or two ago"

    Don't be embarrassed! We have all, at one time or another, crashed a bird or two or twenty.... It helps far more for you to start with "I crashed recently" and now here is what I am seeing.

    Hard Landings, hitting trees, smacking pavement... plopping into tall grass... all that stuff could make a difference!

    I have found people here really willing to help - and people rarely scold you (unless you haven't read the manual and unboxed your bird and flew it in the first 30 seconds - then you'll get a little crap... but let's be honest... you kinda deserve that :lol: )

    Just my PSA for the day :)
