I was wondering how durable the e-flite electronics package (4 in 1 controller and servos) are in the event of severe crashes? Appreciate your input!

Depends on what you mean by "severe." I've had 8-10 crashes, one on concrete (mild impact, but ruined blades) and the rest on grass/sod. I've even had one full speed into the sod at about a 30 degree angle. I've replaced many parts, but so far the 4-in-1 acts like nothing happened...all three servos, both motors, and the boom and tail gears are original parts. Had to replace my canopy once--there were cracks, digs, and punchouts where the 4-in-1 hit it on impact!

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

I have never had a 4-in-1 control break or go bad after a crash and at first I crashed them every flight. Thank God I caught on to this hobby and am enjoying myself.

Good lord, I don't know if I should be happy to hear they're durable or be worried about those stupid trees jumping out in front of it? Seriously though, are the electronics really that durable or have you guys just been lucky?

**insert clever phrase here**

I hit left side, nose down hard enough bend the LiPo and cracked the 4-in-1 case . It was still working ok afterwards, and looked fine even after I opened it up and examined it with a magnifier. Amazing how tough these things are! But I changed it anyway even though it was working fine, because I just didn't trust it. I've since tested it on the ground fine, so one of these days I'll get a 2nd frame and put it in it so I can get 2nd heli in the air.

I have slammed Terra firma about 5 times and asphalt three times strait in at high speed. I have broken blades, boom, main shaft, struts, and a frame, but no electronics. I had a crystal go out in the rx after a normal flight, but I don't know if any of the other crashes had damaged it. This thing is very durable! Each time though I did get out of idel up and kill the throttle just before I hit.
