Seriously, either mechanical or disorientation.
If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

It would depend upon your current level of flying skill.

In the early part of the learning curve crashes are generally all pilot error, perhaps complicated by contributing factors such as poor setup, poor maintenance, poor building skills.

As your skills improve, crashes generally happen because you're pushing the limits of your skills and get the heli in an unfamiliar orientation with too little altitude to recover. You haven't built your survival instincts well enough to get out of trouble without second guessing.

As you become a veteran flyer, comfortable with your heli no matter what it's doing, then crashes generally happen due to mechanical/equipment failure or just plain dumb-thumbing the TX. In some cases, it's just plain old hot-dogging that will humble you, but that boils down to pilot error.

The helicopter misunderstanding what I meant to tell it to do.The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

The most common cause of a crash would undoubtedly have to be, as somebody once put it, "my eyes, brain and thumbs failed to agree at the right time."

What is the most typical crash? How would you regain control?
I would have to say my crashes are caused by an overwhelming lack of skill .

But seriously, an orientation I am not used to has been the #1 cause. I don't crash very often anymore because I manage to save it by getting to my comfort orientation or just flying it out but it used to be nasty. I can directly thank the sim for that, I figured it wasn't crashed until it was crashed so I always fought it to the ground instead of just watching it burn in and pushing the red button. I find myself saving it before realizing it needs saved when I fly in real life.

What is the most common crash?
My lack of skill, orientation, panic, lack of practice, gravitational forces beyond my limited skill, unexpected wind gusts, trees that want to reach out and touch my machine, etc.

Most common causes for me.
1. Incomplete control laws and lookup tables in brain.

2. Brain to hand signal latency, packet loss, and polarity reversal.

3. Mental control gains not reset when switching between vehicles.

4. Mechanical malfunction.
