Default Spare parts inventory

I am sure this has been asked before, so please bear with me as I could not find the information while searching.

I am looking to build a good spare parts inventory for my Lepton and would like some input on what the most likely damaged parts in a crash would be. My LHS carries the complete line of Lepton spare parts (thankfully), but I would like to have a good supply on hand.

Here is what I know I will be getting for sure:

Feathering shafts
Dampers
Tail boom
Tail boom supports
Drive belt
Main shaft??
Main and tail rotor blades, of course

What else would be good to keep in my spare parts inventory for easy crash recovery?

Thanks.

Steve

Main gear. Almost always damaged in an electric heli crash. Also don't forget the flybars.

Thanks Gscott. I forgot to mention flybars above. I know the Hirobo ones are c**p, so I am waiting for Helidirect to get the HDX500 ones back in stock. I will order quite a few once they are avaiable.

Other items I should add to my list? Main shafts? Tail shafts? One way bearings and autorotation gear?
