I am seriously considering buying an N5c but am wondering what the crash cost average on one of these would be. Blades aside. How well does the frame hold up? I know it matters how hard you hit, and you are not supposed to crash your helicopter, but sooner or later you crash, and I have been known to plant a few heli's in my time!! The first year was terrible, the second not so bad and last season I sat out most of it for health reasons, but when i did fly I took it real easy just going over the basics and no problem. But I know one of these days I will crash, I notice the parts are more expensive than what a regular heli's parts cost. So any input would be great.

N5c has a very rigid and strong frame. I have only seen one break (completely botched auto onto pavement). Other than that you typically bend a boom, break the gear, main shaft or spindle shaft, all the normal parts that break. And as far as price goes I would say it is average with what you will normally spend.

A couple of my buddies has crashed pretty hard and the heli never seems in very bad shape, never saw a frame break, replacement parts are also affordable.

Not much really. The heli is a high quality machine and flys even better. I think you will be very happy if you purchase one.

Just depends how good you can crash...If you crash like me any heli rebuild can be costly LOL!

I would say all common crash parts: Spindle, Main Shaft, Boom, Boom Supports, Landing Gear will run you about $100.00 Plus Blades of your choice and then do a worst case and add in a Frame Side maybe a Bearing Set or Frame Spacer, Canopy or Gearbox Parts, Linkages or Main Gear.. etc

It really depends on the force and angle of the impact and what surface it lands on to the extent of the damages.

N5c Rigidity
I will say this, I miss judged a Bradford Pear Tree at about 60-70 MPH and lets just say it came out the other end flying as good as it did when it went in!!lol Very Impressive!! I didn't replace anything but the canopy only because I chipped the Paint!! Great Heli, I have unfortunately stuffed Mine a Few Times and it really took the Punishment.

I have a N5c and I can say without a doubt it is the best 50 sized Heli I have owned, fitted with a Beastx and a YS56 it flys like a 90 size, it is a BIG 50 only slightly shorter than my 700's but light.
Fly great

Update on the crash cost! I plowed my N5c in today nose first with no canopy, I broke blades, link arms, the very tip of the batt tray, landing gear, boom, belt, and bent the mainshaft. Very little damage for how I hit! Now I gotta clean all this mud off the heli

I say the picture seldred, if that is all that broke, I would say it's a very good sign.
One of my buddies also crashed his N5c hard last week-end and he told me that he was surprised for how little things needed to be replaced.

How about the blade grip arms for the main blades, do they get bent up after a crash? I have another brand heli and its almost certain that after a crash they need replacing, but they are not 35 dollars.

I didnt bend mine. I've also seen a number of other people crash when trying to "cut an 'Epic' crop circle" and they didn't bend. If you are flying above a hard surface tho, I'm sure your chances of bending one are a little higher.

Best,
