Default Little intro

Hey,
I'm Chris, I just happen to know that there is a little Blade 120SR BNF sitting under my tree right now. Been on WF for a while and this is my first post in the Heli area. I know less about Roundy-Roundy wing things than I do Airplanes.

I can tell you this heli was not bought on a whim, alot of questions were asked and research done before telling the wife what to get. This is to be an indoor, when it is too dark or windy to fly experience. I decided to forgo the coax heli's due to the advise that they are a completely diffrent animal. She will be bound to a DX8.

So, first question, what is most likely the first thing I am going to have to replace after crashing? And please don't say my TV.

Blades are probably the most frequent replacement....both main and tail
the is a little rod between the lmain blade holder called a spindle (of feathering
shaft) that sometimes bends, too.

Other items are main shafts and skids.

If you fly it outdoors over grass then there is much less chance of doing damage. Try it indoors only once you get the hang of it.

OK, thanks guys. Main rotor blades, Tail Rotor Blade, a Spindle shaft or Feathering shaft? A couple of extra batteries and I see alot of people have extra landing skids too. 4 LONG days to wait.
