I have crashed many times *sigh* without breaking anything. Still a crash.

I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places...

what is your Definition of a "Crash"
= contact with terra-firma and something breaks. Must also include the idea that something may have already broken in flight to cause the undesired terra-firma contact.

Crashes
Hi Guys, My definition of a crash is what happened to me this Monday past. Negative ground clearance, big divot, lots of new parts needed.
I was getting frisky with my Evo 50 flipping and pumping and the wind was blowing up to 25+ mph, Well I got to low inverted tried to flip it over wind gust got me and I planted it. chopper is totaled servos OK RX totaled engine and pipe OK gyro OK tail servo OK fuel tank swiss cheese.
I think this qualifies as a crash. I have a new kit I'm starting to assemble and I will just have to fly my new SDX carefully until the new EVO is ready. BTW I never have hard landings I only have soft crashes LOL... I've made so many new holes at my field that the groundhogs sent me a thank you card for the new condos I made for them.......
Regards Eric G "The Divot Maker"

when it takes more than one trip to the impact site to pick up the peices to be up graded

If something hasn't broken on your helicopter, it's about to.'

WHAT? I hit the tail on my Virgin 500 two weeks ago and stripped the front and rear gears. So, you are saying she is no longer pure? Please say it isn't so!
