This hobby is very cheap. And if you believe that...
I put the Rave in about every 25 flights.

I crashed this little guy last fall at dusk and having a wagging tail I couldnt fix. Rebuilt the entire heli. I had bought it used and he didnt build it well I realized. I installed the 1.5mm frames, rebuilt it, and as its as smooth as butter now. Beautiful little heli. Hope I dont crash it this year

I rarley crash these days. Havent crashed my 700E since buying it 2 years ago

Bad luck to talk about it.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

good maintenance and smart flying, I get get around 500-600 flights normally between crashes. I don't dumb thumb them but normally after that many flights I miss something on my preflight and the darn thing explodes...

With the 90 ( now in retirement) it had very few crashes as it was an f3c set-up and it was a 90...

The little Rave? I might go for a month without digging and crash 4 times in the next month. I'm not that comfortable with being so low!! But the 450 you have too... I've just installed the new Revoletrix Co-pilot II. When sorted ( it's not plug and play) I will post some video of how it performs. 2 weeks away I think

Vibe 90 3D, Trex 700E flb no gov, Rave 450 fbls , Trex 250
