Yes! Exactly the same situation for me.. So I sold mine.. I could only get
$200 out of it (minus receiver and servos).. Lost some cash considering it
was only two months old. I really think that helicopter had it out for me
from the beginning. The only time I bothered flying it outside, it went
straight into the concrete.. broken landing skid mount, tail skid rod,
cracked canopy and dead piccoboard. One month to get a replacement board!
The bad luck continued with the sale, where I got screwed and only got $175
of the agreed $200 and never heard back from the buyer. I see that he just
sold it on RC Online so I guess he got tired of it too!
