3 crashes in 3 months
A bit of bad luck as of late. I have crashed my trex500 3 times in the last 3 months. Two of witch was due to the dreaded belted tail static issues(now shaft drice) and the last because of dump thumbs just Saturday. Being inverted about 10ft off the deck I turned off idle up and watched my heli hit dirt in dismay. I thought to myself why did I make such a bonehead move and just laughed. Damage was minimal but the thought of rebuilding was depressing.But Like my uncle that got me into this hobby said to me if you cant stand to crash it don't fly it. Well on the bright side the 700 is still alive and well.
Got to have my cup of heli in the morning.

Sounds like you think that's a lot?

3 months doesn't mean anything by itself.
Does this time frame cover 3 flights or 300 flights?

Assuming somewhere in the middle, you're doing fine.
I've done 3 crashes in 3 days, and I bet there's guys on here who have 3 crashes in one day... Preaching to the choir, boy!

That isn't nothing, I had 3 crashes in 2 weeks. First was a orientation/bad eyesight error. Second was pinion/main gear mesh failed. Third was a one way bearing fail while inverted. It looks like I have all the issues worked out and I am back to good flying.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

Two crashes in 1 day, I've done that.

One, I never did rebuild, it was a re-kit.
Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

the morning crash was practicing inverted abit to low and tried pulling out of it other way to what i normaly do
and the afternoon crash the tail blades and tail shaft came off and just left the tail case. doesnt sound like my fault but did have heavy landing with this helli when engine poped week before and didnt check the tail case , must of split it or somthing.
fuel it < check it <> fly it > clean it

6 crashes in 2 years
i have 6 crashes in 2 years and just yesterday was the 6th crash
on the 600n. i have 2 on the 700 and that only has a dozen flights on it. if im crashin im gettin back on the sim. i spend a lot of time on the simulator.not so much that i get burned out but enough to where im learning. if im not feeling it i crash.(yesterday i wasnt feelin it but someone wanted to see the heli for the 1st time). i wasnt feelin it yesterday and decided what the hell im gonna fly anyway. crash! was doing figure 8's in a funnel and disorianted when i was transitioning right into the ground.it actually bounced when it hit.
need new muffler,and blade grips. this an exspensive one.the funny thing is the blades didnt explode. i did hit TH just before it went in
which way is it going dude!!!!!!?? am i inverted??
