My biggest crash so far? hmm, can't think of one.
But, my next biggest crash is going to be drowning my Revo in a 15 foot deep pond.

I was tuning up my Hyper 7 in the parking lot behind my house. I had forgotten to rebind my receiver when I dropped it in, and the car it had previously been in had reversed servos. Well, the RX pack got disconnected, and since the servo was reversed, failsafe meant full throttle! The H7 went flying out of the parking lot, into a 4-lane road, got thrown by a truck into a gas station parking lot, and ended upside-down right into an 8" curb.

The damage was: battery cables ripped, exhaust torn off and flattened in the road, front hinge pins, braces, and arms all broken / bent. Honestly, not as bad as it could have been, but it was a fairly intense moment.

Wow thats a scary one there.
Lucky it didnt cause an accedent the Hyper would have been the least of you're worries lol

Sounds like you got out of it fairly cheap tho compaired to the damage that could have been done.

Yep, learned my lesson on double-checking failsafes before running a nitro! Now I've got failsafe and remote killswitch in my Baja 5T, because that thing can do real damage on a runaway.

Man there is nothing worse than the feeling of getting, or almost getting, into a wreck. The gut wrenching nerve tingling, adrenaline RUSH( no pun intended although i do love my Rush) really ampes the body out
