Hey guys, here's a chance of some free props, they are 5040 non bullnose king kong brand. I have 3 boxes of 20, 10 of each direction per box, I actually have another box but I've used some ? they've not been crashed. Post up a video clip of your worst crash into a tree, in a tree and we'll see how we go, 4 possible winners and a poll to decide, crack on

I could've sworn the tree jumped out in front of my quad. my first flight I almost took the power to a church and ended up in a storm run off with no battery, and 3 arms on a quad.

The Lipo ejected itself during the death roll, The HD cam off. I did narrow it down to what caused the crash.. I had a set of 5040 Triples on it from a mate (who said he hasn't used them for a year or so). so after retrieving the quad I tried to find out what went wrong. So I put a second set of props on it (same batch my mate gave me). strapped the quad down to my bench and went 3/4 to full throttle for about 2 minutes and all of a sudden 2 of the props exploded.
After a change of underwear I figured the props were somehow old, perhaps brittle and just could not handle the forces.
Oh, I was standing well back and wearing a full face shield while testing. The quad has since been flying great with new props.
