Tail boom, main shaft, spindel,landing gear, altho its hard to say what else could break link linkages and such, so that would be a start, almost forgot main blades.

Hey I didn't ask for this fetish.!!!But I'am sure paying for it....

Mixer arms, always - I think they save the servos a bit though so not really a bad thing.

Add horizontal and vertical fins, a set of upper and lower linkages and a flybar, oh and a set of replacement ball and screws (thats what gets lost when the seesaw arm breaks)

Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would fall off.

Ok
Ok, I get it, so let me make a list of what I should buy in case of a crash (that will happen sooner o later)

Thanks,
Alejandro

OK
So we are talking of an average of 110 usd for every crash you could have?

No, no, you misunderstand Alejandro.

The average Tiger 50 crash-call goes out our door for about $36.

However, I understood you to ask what parts to keep on hand. The reason I presented the data to you is because I know you are in Mexico. Since I lived in the Republic of Panama for 15 years, I thought I had experience with why you wanted to know what parts to keep on hand (since I know the pipeline is longer for you than for most modelers). Did I misunderstand what you were asking?

Folks, I related what statistically we have determined (via empirical evidence) is what should be kept in stock if you want to be 95% sure to get back into the air without delay. The purpose of this data is actually destined primarily for the use of hobby store owners. That's because they wish to service their customers needs with a minimum of overhead. This is because it can be quite expensive to keep every single part on hand, so they play a statistical game of trying to keep the most people happy with the least amount of parts.

Thus, with the list of parts I provided, you could get back into the air 95% of the time, not that you need these parts each time you crash . . . there's a big difference. Do you understand the difference?

For example, a customer crashes and goes to the hobby shop because he needs a tail boom and spindle shaft. Hence, with those parts on hand the store owner satisfies the customer's needs for repair and the customer is happy again. A different crash might have broken a tail boom, a set of landing gear legs, a tail output shaft and a spindle shaft. Again, with those parts on hand the store keeps their customer happy as they can effect immediate repairs and be back in the air. Yet a different crash may take out main rotor blades, main shaft, and spindle shaft. Again, with this stock on hand their customer is back into the air and happy.

However, what I have not addressed with the prior information is what level of these parts to keep on hand, i.e. 3 of each. This decision is made by each store owner based on their comfort level and knowing their customers as well as their state of cash flow, etc. However, what we have determined is that with these parts in their store, the hobby dealer can satisfy 95% of customers. I trust you understand now what the intent of the information was.

There's really no need because if you kept your tri-fold registration form after you cut off and mailed back one of the panels, of the remaining two panels, one side of one of them has the crash parts on this list. The other three sides are upgrade and hop up parts.

Thank you very much John, So It looks that really is very cheap to crash!!
I think I´m gonna buy all the set of parts that you told me before, so I don´t have to wait 1 week to get back in the air.
