Time to fisrt crash = 14 months (100+ gallons): cause = cyclic servo failure less than 10 feet from ground
Time to second crash (from first) = 3 days (2 gallons): cause = radio lockout while hovering ( failsafe was set to pile heli down )
Time to 3rd crash (from second) = 18 months (150+ gallons): cause = link rod failure in cyclic while hovering low

That's it to date

I flew my Raptor for about 18 months before crashing. I mostly only fly on Saturdays. After that first crash I think I have crashed about 4 times during the subsequent 6 months.
