Here's a few more pics before we tear it down for an autopsy. Check out all of those gold-anodized parts in the Helizone Thunderbird.
I was finally able to take one of my small copters out in the yard (even with a mild side-wind) and just bomb all over with it. What a BLAST this new copter is to fly around. It's so nice to land where you wanted to, not where you ended up.
