Thumbs down At what point do I tell the kid NO MORE??

Ok so some of you know the story of how hard I worked on getting a motor put into my cat, starting out with three motors & ending up installing a 700 that was kind of a pain but got her done.

so my first trip to the coast and the wife & I are having a blast & of course the boy (18) wants to take her for a spin and & tears the upper arm damn near off,
so we get it home and he does all the work reinforcing & puting it back together & first test run out he damn near tears off the rear hub,
so its back in for repairs ..
good Kid but damn hard on things, good thing hes mechanical..

Sounds like he needs his own project prowler to work on, then you can ride together and use yours to tow him back to the shop.

So how is he doing all the damage, trying to see how high he can fly?

I think the rear hub breakage was defiantly jumping it, in one of the pictures you can see the little hill in the background..

the front arm he came down a dune to fast and hit the bottom way to hard and tore the A arm mount off.
