I crashed my rappy 50 again this morning. It seems like every other week I crash...It's getting very expensive! Now granted I am trying new things. Today I did my first unsuccessful Auto-rotaion from high altitude...What makes us INTENTIONALLY SHUT DOWN OUR ENGINES (throttle hold).??? I (we) must be insane! I WILLNOT GIVE UP!!! THIS IS WAY TOO MUCH FUN.

How often do you guys crash?
let me know.

cheers

Ahhh my friend you are not the only.

I will only tell you this. The last 7 months my credit card bill every month has the same names : helikraft, midland helicopters, only raptors. Also I have became very good friend with the postman and the courier companies

Yesterday I also crashed my 50. I had a good record thought. One month without crashing

One more think.

As heligoole said it's a matter how hard you are pushing yourself. The fact that you are crashing means that you are trying to progress.

If I was only doing circuits, figure 8s, nose in and pirouettes I would never crash but I am not

Heligoole said he is in the controls for 18 months but he is going through the safe way so he is has no crashes. I am only flying 10 months and yesterday I crashed cause I was trying piroflips. My buddy in flying deals with helis 5 years. He have no crashes at all but he took of the training gear 3 months ago and he is still hovering tail in only so it's just a matter how fast you want to progress.

Ha ha me too. The prob is that I am always going beyond my limits and every time I am doing something new I have to land cause my hands and knees are shaking.

Honestly I felt that yesterday.
