Awhile back I think Sylvester had a thread on lowest crash costs.. Wrecked my Trex 600np OUCH!! Cracked case on motor destroyed muffler, main blades,both sides of frame, t tube, t tube gears, main gears, main shaft , landing gear,...Total around 600.00 ( ok part of it was, as long as it's broke 50 turned into 55.. don't tell my wife!!) Can it get worse that this??

Last time I crashed (that bad) I just bought a new kit and used the crashed one for parts. Sometimes it's not worth the re-build.

I started with a couple blade cp pros a few years ago and crashed the hollly hell out of them...... Gave up for a year and started over with a blade 400 and no cashes ever since........ Yea I gotta start pushing the envelope a little farther this summer..... Crashes are an opportunity for upgrades :YeaBaby:

I had a crash with my Trex600, it wasn't a very expensive crash but i snapped the screw mounts off a brand new BLS251 servo, and at that time Futaba had not yet released the replacement cases for it so i had to spend a whole 100 on a new servo just because of a broken servo case PITA!

The worst thing happened to me was not a crash, actually, my crashes were of minor cost. But the worst and biggest bad luck I ever had was losing my hely due to the frog and lost orientation. The heli was Logo 400 fbl complete with kontronik drive and hc rigid.

A frog got your heli? Damn this hobby is dangerous:shock:. I havent damaged much, my worst was probably on my cx2 with the body pieces breaking, the landing gear gone, flybar, gears, main shaft,and blades. Thats like a 50 dollar crash on a pos heli where all those parts are built to break. So I taped up the body, superglued the landing gear, and got the rest off ebay as a stripped heli minus electrics for 20 bux- im cheap if at all possible.
