CopterX 450 testflight and crash

I did my first test flight with the CopterX 450 DFC after changing ESC, motor and swashplate today. The blade tracking was completely off, since I haven't adjusted it since i changed the swashplate. Tried out some hovering anyway. It went fine until a servo horn broken and the machine came down a bit too fast.

Broken parts, after initial inspection:

  • One main blade
  • Feathering shaft
  • Tail boom
  • Main gear
  • The servo-horn to blame for everything
All in all it's not that bad. The snow probably saved most of the parts.
