I can vouch for this one. I like to think that a crash teaches me something, and if I don't know why my helicopter wanted to see how high it can bounce, I try to find out before I'm doomed to repeat the problem.

ive crashed first time(on glow)(..have crashed lots on electric)about 2 weeks ago..the reason im not back up in the air is not because i cant afford the parts but am still waiting for the last part to come via mail order...i think nerves are going to be ok...after all i had the nerve to fly the thing in the first instance(remember the fear factor of the first time you ever flew??)i was lucky in that ive been flying the 30 for over a year and this was the first crash....so not bad statistics considering i thought id crash first time out!!!!!!!!

crashing

i can definately relate to the stories. i bought a second heli because i couldnt stand to not fly while waiting for parts to come in. ive also had a problem with continued flights if one goes sour and you save it at the last second, sometimes my nerves are shot for a few minutes, and i know if i fly again i will lose it. found out if i get in the car and go for an invigorating tire smokin ride i can clear my head and fly again the same day.

Gasser intimidating?

I crashed my rap50 for the first time about a month ago, I'd been flying for about a month and was doing pretty good (some nose in, FF). Was switching jobs so had no time to fix or even fly the sim. I didn't touch the sticks for 2 weeks!

Now I have no confidence with the gasser, but I have a shogun I fly in my backyard and have no problem flying that one!

The only thing I can come up with is that the rap50 is a more intimidating. My crash was a mix up in orientation during some stall turns. I turned the wrong way and all of a sudden the helicopter was coming at me, instead of just staying calm I froze up. Now I have no confidence in my abilities to correct my mistakes. I've only flown about 5 tanks so I'm hoping that I can just "burn" away my jitters!

Sounds like you have a psychological problem with expense of crashing. Since you seem to have no trouble flying the micro around.

I found no difference going from the R30 to R60. The size factor was an aide not a hinderence and the difference in crash cost is minimal in the raptor line.

I think as we gather experience we get less fearful of these machines. Remember the blades on the micro could quite easily cut you also. The expense in crashing is pretty low on her though.

Makes it hard when you don't get much stick time.

It does take me a few flights to get back into it after a crash, usually about one session (4 flights).
