You could look at if from another perspective....I see guys at the field that rarely crash, but they do the same routine over and over again. Figure eights, a roll, maybe a couple loops, and a high altitude flip. That's cool.

But I also see guys bury it 2 or 3 times before they can hit a 4 point tic toc or a P Flip. I give credit to the guys that push their abilities to the max and risk the main blades.

No, I didn't and I don't understand why my comment was argumentative to you. After reading your reply, I don't care. Take it how you want it.

I had a pretty easy year.
Destroyed one plank that was within a couple weeks of permanent retirement anyhow when the elevator servo failed during a low high speed pass.
Rekitted 1 heli when a head part broke on its second flight.
Destroyed combat planks don't count.

I managed to avoid having any total losses: set of blades here, skids there, bent masts, but no rekits. Unless you could the four $12 foamy SU-28 kits i went through flying combat with the club
