I have three nitros, two 50's and a 90. Sometimes I think it's one too many, and considered selling the 90, a Trex 700, since I fly it the least. But then I flew my best flying and strongest 50, right after 3 flights with the Trex 700. Selling the 90 is no longer an option. The 50 for a moment felt like a Blade CP Pro... but I got used to it again. It flies for 1/2 the price in fuel after all.

Whew I was going to call an infusion 30% nitro. If symptoms persist, up your nitro content immediately

Its hard to keep more than a couple machines in the air at one time.

That cursed 4th heli
Indeed, it seems always one too many. I actually have four helis, an electric Beam E4 (450), too. For some reason, whenever all four are fly-worthy, one of them crashes!

Fortunately, it's the Beam that's the one going in the most, it's been cheaper that way. The last four crashes were all mechanical, but two mostly my own fault, for not checking well enough between flights, and too little loctite (beam tail control arm miniscule screw), too little epoxy (Knight tail servo carbon rod link fell off). Two I could do little about: 9254 servo died (Knight), and Friday, jesus bolt sheared off (Beam E4).

I should just keep the Beam unrepaired on the shelf. Maybe I'll avoid too many crashes on the other three...

I hear that. I seem to wreck one TWrecks only to repair it and crash the other. Luckily, my Craptor doesn't plow as often. Oops that did it.

Maybe your Beam is meant to be a sacrifice to the heli gods....

Yeah, I think the Beam is the sacrifice. It's impossible to get parts for it anyway. Maybe I'll sell one of my 50's but I love them both. Damn this hobby!

Yeah, this hobby can be a mean mistress at times. I forgot to mention I use my WH°®3net II as my sacrifice. I keep the carcass in the box in my closet. Works a treat. Do occasionally buy spares to keep the heli gods happy.

Edit, mean in front of mistress.
