Default Can a brushless Mcpx take lots of crashes?

I try things I would not try with any other heli so I crash a lot. Like many people say the Mcpx is the real world simulator. Lots of pics/video of blinged out brushless Mcpx's flying amazingly. They look sweet but how does it take a crash, lots of crashes? I have yet to see a video of a brushless Mcpx with lots of mods crash.

They still crash well.
I've crashed mine loads since my original conversion, its now has the more powerful HP05S motor with 6000rpm at the head and just the other day i killed my 1st servo, i crashed hard on the side and the frame flexed and the outrunner ripped a chip off the back of the servo, oops.

If i really think about it though i've crashed less since going bl than i did when it was stock, i think having enough power to get yourself out of a situation really helps a lot.

The frame is weaker than before the trimming,I had to put a small sheet of carbon on the bottom of the frame after breaking it between the motor mount and the main bearing.I did crash a lot without breaking it though.I do mean alot

This is one reason I waited to go BL until after I had the RKH. No modding/weakening of the frame and I'm hoping overall it is stiffer and more crash tolerant.

I'm trying my best not to . Haven't crash very much since the conversion.
