After a major air crash at the Supernova arifield.
I launched a very through investigation and found the cause of the incident.
Statement from the, pillok, sorry Pilot.
On the approach to the landing area! with no warning given to the pilot (myself) I failed to notice a beer can very close to the Heliport this was not at first a major problem because, I did drink the contents, as I approached I had a feeling that I was coming in to fast and tried to reverse, this action made my decent awkward to say the least.
I made contact with the FOD (foreign object debris as known in the British Air force) on the landing area, said beer can.
As a result my Helicopter was now out of control and there was nothing else I could do, so I crashed, but the rear rotor still had power and made the incident worse dragging me backwards into a shoe that I had removed because I had just finished work.
As a result the Helicopter was very badly damaged.
After a major engineering inspection it was found that the main black power lead from the Lipo power source had become detached and made contact with the next terminal on the circuit board, this being the main drive to the rear rotor sent the Helicopter out of control of the pilot.
Also the red wire to the front motor driving the botom rotor was severed at the top of the motor rendering recovery impossable.
So in conclusion the pillok, sorry Pilot is blameless as drinking is compulsory when flying a S107.
No witness to the incident was recorded.
Flying the Syma 107 pissed is allowed providing a shout was called first "Rotors spinning am pissed watch out beer can" You are lucky the only witness was the shoe-Carry on flying pilot!!
It is a good job I have a supply of bits from my Syma box to do the repairs with, so will be flying again soon chaps tallyho .
Another thing to be weary of is challenges of landing on the head of a person with long hair-- the results can be disastrous!
yo correct,even my hairy dog hairs get into top blade-result does not hover
Well SF if the hairy dog cant hover, stick it the S 107
The repairs have been carried out now a new front motor sorted and the airfield has been cleared of FOD eg beer can and shoe.
So she is flying again.
