Hey man, don't beat yourself up. I built an engine two years ago and have beat it to heck. We had a hard winter, I did a cam and carb swap and got it hot quick a few times. I now have a knock, and know it's time I flip the motor over and see what the bearings look like. I hope that I can put some emery cloth to the crank, change the bearings and be good to go. When I built the engine, I took my time and made sure to take every precaution. I raced it a few times, and ran it very hard. You will learn everyday, but if you quit on the hobby it will never grow. Take it in stride and try again, don't let these old timers get to you, they have made plenty of mistakes of their own and wouldn't be the mechanics they are without them. I've been building helicopters for five solid years and learn every single day. I encourage you to build it again, but do it better.
