I know this is a stupid question, but how do metal parts respond to a crash? Are they more durable in a crash, or do they just reduce slop. I am trying to deciede when it will be a good time to upgrade?

From what I've read they are very durable. I've upgraded all my parts with Align aluminum, but haven't had a hard crash yet.

The metal parts are definitely more durable.

Sometimes just a slight touch of the blades hitting the floor could cause one of those plastic peices in the head to snap.

The Aluminum parts will definitely prevent that. However in a hard crash I would think it is really likely that the Aluminum parts could bend or become warped. But based on what I've read there hasn't been any reports of damage.

Some choose to keep the main blade grips plastic (stock) so in a hard crash all the energy would release on the grips and will just snap off. Possibly saving the blades and the rest of metal head from bending.
