I had a Synergy it cost me 1200.00 in a month because of crashes . I would say trex 700 would be cheap to crash and I crashed two this week and they hold up good too except canopy it cost 83.00 and is not strong . Not too many parts to replace .

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

I had an old JR Vigor that cost me $1000 in a crash. 3 flights after the repairs. i had another $1000 crash. and this is also with the help of getting some good deals on parts.

after the second $1000 crash, it more or less sat on the shelf.

Yea, all that is fine... It is the subtraction of $1,000 from my bank acct... The flying and crashing don't really bother me

fear is fear! if you cant afford it you shouldn't play

I don't like it when one of my birds goes in and I will admit the cost is sometimes a factor but its part of the hobby and if your gonna play your gonna pay! I have 2 MA birds an Ion X2 and a Spectra G and I fly em both like they were T-rex 450s.

just suck it up and go fly otherwise if your to worried your not having fun.

I gave up on my Fury for just this reason. For me there are far better value for money helis out there than the typical exotics: Stratus, Vibe, N9, Aurora, D3.

I am over expensive helis. I like cheap great flying helis and there are many out there to choose from. I can afford almost any heli I want but to me that's not the point. Value is and I just don't personally see the added value in the high $$ machines....to each his own.

crashes can be funny how some cost a little and some are a re-kit.

I've had mechanical failures in the last two months with drastically different out comes on my FBL700.

CRASH#1 - main gear stripped while inverted, it was low and I did a brain fart and didn't commit to action until it was too late. result..every shaft was just barely bent, every gear lost one tooth, every link bent or broke, every bearing toast, tail, ttube, main blades , tail blades, swash plate, gears stripped on cyclic servos.. total was well over $200 not including blades. could easily add $100 for head parts if it had a fly bar. it was a fairly low impact crash but just barely broke on bent everything except the frames.

CRASH #2 - right cyclic servo failed in flight during a nose first vertical dive from 100+ft. All I could do was hit thold and watch it lawndart into the ground nose first at 70+mph. Result..landing skids,skid pipes, chipped paint on canopy, stripped on servo gear, boom, ttube and blades. didn't strip a gear, didn't bend any shaft, didn't burn the clutch(no chicken dance but the throttle got jarred open on impact)no frame damage. Total was $193 for everything including blades and a bunch of paint supplies. When I hit thold I was expecting a rekit at best and hoping any of the electronics would survive.

These two may be a bit extreme but it just goes to show you never know how bad or how well a crash can turn out.

I've had 2 bad crashes with my Stratus about $2,000 each, no exageration. Besides all the kit parts (about $600 there alone), we're talking blades, muffler, servos(cases broken wide open), gyro, rx(case and board cracked), regulator(caught fire), battery, even some engine parts like the carb body, needle valves, and cylinder head. Granted, to call it a hard crash would be an understatement.

Sounds more like you flew it into a chipper shredder

I salute you for complete and total destruction

Yes, 90 crashes are expensive but from what I've seen so far the Trex 700 for example usually does not break the frames so other components are protected. On the Stratus, if the frames break where there is not much material because you got 3 servos all lined up next to each other, when the frame breaks it breaks the servos too.
