I smoked my 600n in last weekend. The main shaft was an "S".

It stripped two servo's gears (9252's)
Blades.
Canopy.
Needed to replace the bearings in the main grips...

Other than that nothing else. Everyone was really surprised.

Two crashes on a pro.

1st inverted backwards close to the ground, dumb thumbs put her in tail first she fliped over on the boom and came down on her side.
£180 of damage including canopy.

2nd Back Servo screw missing. On take off the heli just fliped over on her side so quick. £80 of damage.

One Crash on sport.

Inverted and she cut out from split clunk line. Managed to get her upright but she came down hard.
£5 new skids there was also a dent in the boom from a boom strike.

I love these helis

Live life on the edge. Stand next to me when I am flying

I put mine in on the 12th flight since new. Nose first at about a 45 degree angle. I destroyed the frames, all shafts, torque tube, canopy, most bearings are shot.
Canopy $70
Frames $60 (aftermarket fiberglass)
All the rest $200

$330 was a bad one for me being used to Raptors, but it went in pretty hard and $70 of it was for a canopy which looks much better than any other I've had, so I don't mind.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.

Mine came out suprisingly cheap. I could have kept the right frame because the hole isn't flight critical so I could have saved there but all in all about $180. Its stripping down the bird and starting from scratch that pisses me off but hey. Its a modelling hobby anyway
