Just had my last flights for the year. No crash despite the wind. It made me think about the year being successful in regards to deifying gravity. These are my ball park totals how did you guys fair?

Flights 400-500
Crashes 2
Trades 2
Sold 3
Bought 3

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

Between 200 and 300 flights with a 700...I don't count.
Six crashes with a 700 with one re-kit.
Bought three different used 700s and one new 700.
Sold two 700s...Sent one to the landfill.

Micros...Beyond a countable number of flights with a very similar number of crashes...Almost 1:1
Mostly the 130X

About 30 flights with a 450.
Three 450 crashes.
Bought one.
Sold one.

Spent around $4000 total.

I had an off year due to health and family issues and thus didn't fly that much. I don't know total flights. But here is what I have:

Crashes: 0
Mid-airs: 1
bought: 1
returned: 1
funflys attended: 1 (ircha)

So my new years resolution is to get out there and fly more and get to more funflys!

I like the addition of type of heli. My flights were a mix of 500-800 size. I did not include MCPX flying in the count since the flights are 2 minutes and I crash every other flight.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

I have no idea how many flights.

The wife says it's about $10k.

Sold one, bought a bunch (if you count micros), crashed them all...
except the TDR - haven't flown it yet

2013: some at the field say I fly too much, but I am not keeping track caus' I cannot count that far I could probaly count my number of crashes but did not keep track. Let us say 5 or so... Bought too many "toys"... in the process of thinning the fleet. Watch for good deals on RR.

2014: it will also be my first year at IRCHA. Looking forward to this!

By the way, I need to add my purchases. I went hog wild in 2013 after getting back into the hobby after 8 or 9 years off... Bought too many helis (well, I think I may have enough now). My "budget" is maxed out. Problem is that when I get my X3 finished and flying soon, I'm supposed to tell myself that's it, no more $$$ for new helis. A little depressing to start the new year not looking forward to more. Thank you.
