Default Are other models as reliable?

I'm just wondering if other models are as reliable and consistent as the Pantera? Or us it just that I take time to pre/post flight, do maintenance, and don't push the model that hard? Just wondering... knock on wood, I've not had any issues since going back to work the basics...

While not nearly as tough, my original T-Rex 500 is a super smooth running and reliable helicopter. However, I think that for whatever reason (luck?) my 500 seems to be an exception rather than the rule for this airframe. I'm probably approaching 500 flights with it now.
