Caliber 5 crash # 2
A wind gust turned my Caliber 5 nose in and I dumb thumbed it into a right roll to the ground from about 6 feet up. I should have known to land with all that wind as I was fighting it the entire time during the flight. The casualty list:

Tail Boom
Tail Belt
Tail Support
Tail Output Shaft
Main Mast
Stabilizer Bar
Ball End
Head Linkage
Spindle Shaft
Collar
Body Mount Set
Blades


That totals over $180. I don’t know if I should put this much into this thing, get another complete kit or just go for a Raptor for cheaper parts and wider support at the field.

Well,

A new kit is about $300. You're over 50% of that. You're also not listing the mainshaft bearings that probably were trashed if you bent the mainshaft.

I'll not enter that Raptor debate, but a new kit will get you all of your parts, plus new bearings and spares for what you didn't break in this crash.

FWIW,
