I had my Trex 600N for over a year before it had it's first crash. Got it rebuilt and on the first flight, I noticed the new set of Pro 3D blades was out of balance. The lead balance weight and plug had came loose. Went and traded them in on a new set of RotorTechs and the first flight on those I got a little to low with the aileron tic-tocs and smashed them up. Really puts a mental strain on you and your flying when you have two crashes in 3 flights. Almost resets you back to the learning to fly days and keeping tricks you normally do low to the ground, up at 3 mistakes high. Good Luck to everyone and lets have a minimum crash season. Lets use our hard earned money on upgrades and new helis instead of crash parts.

I'm hoping to have a better season this year as well. I actually think I'm going to take it easy with 3d and just have fun flying. I had 3 crashes last year! way to many for me

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

Not having much luck either.
Sunday trex700 with 3g went nuts in the air.
Boom\blades\shafts\and skids.

Tuesday, Compass odin90 Forgot to switch idleup On. Air frame total right off blades etc.
Now decided to fix my 450 Pro and fly that. Hope my luck to changes soon.

at least you are getting all of your bad luck out of the way early this year.
