I don't have one, but for any heli that I've owned, below are the parts that break most often in a crash...

Skids, struts, boom, boom supports, blades, flybar, main shaft, feathering shaft, tail blades, tail shaft.

Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid

Usually it's the common things on most heli's plus a few others that come to mind. Just like waves that crash on a beach shore you'll never crash the exact same way twice. Sometimes the ones that look bad end up being uncanny marginal and the ones that look delicate end up being extremely costly. Here is a rundown of what I would imagine a real fast and nasty dumbthumb could produce in damage.

- Blades
- Feathering shaft
- Main shaft
- Flybar
- Crown gear
- Tail gears (if running plastic)
- Main shaft bearings (depends on severity of main shaft bend)
- Blade grip bearings ( any 8x6x15 bearing will work)
- boom
- Torque tube
- landing struts
- landing skids
- See-saw carrier ( only if linkage balls strip out of it which they commonly do, however you can use two other holes to minimize your crash expenses)
- Might not be a bad idea to get some spare linkages and ball links

I could go on and on and it's really difficult to say what would guaranteed be a part that fails in a crash. I would agree that the crown gear is one of the more common parts to get damaged but I have also had crashes where it did not strip. Average cost of planting your N9 if I had to estimate is going to be about $250-300 USD. Sometimes it's only $150.00.. Don't let the higher costs discourage you from some other heli's you have crashed. The N9 flies so nice that it's worth it. Crashes usually occur when someone is doing something too low they have not become proficient at doing yet. I always do my most comfortable stuff down low and save my new stuff at a higher altitude. It's not how low you can do things but how well you can. Flying 10-30 feet off the ground can look just as good and impressive if its done well.
