I have just about crashed this heli 15 times, some other helis that I have owned would have been demolished
Heli shut off three times in air because I ran out of fuel, the heli blades stopped twice out of three of the crashes, fell 8 feet once onto its landing gear, then 20 feet another time onto the nose, then 6 feet the last onto the landing gear all of which I was able to pick up the heli and ether change the blades and fly again with out changing any other parts.

I did a botched blade stop back to auto and slammed the heli 50feet on the landing gear into the ground, guys at my club were in awe after I picked up the heli then WE did a check over and I took the heli back to platform then crashed again the same day and flew it again the same day. I flew out the rest of my gallon that day.

I crashed hard three times and cracked the boom on the last crash, so I put on a new TSA 100% carbon fiber boom(other was alum. cov with carbon)and crshed that one hard once boom is still good it just jumped out of holder so I stuck it back in.
The landing gear is by FAAAR the toughest on any 600-700 heli I have ever witnessed, because after all those crashes and nuclear hard landing I never broke one.
So far since I have owned the TSA 700N platinum I put about 13 gallons through it and 15 crashes, I have changed:
3 sets of tail blades
7 sets of main blades
2 tail fins
2 blade grip connectors(they had flat spots on em)
1 main shaft
1 main spindle
1 blade grip
1 boom
1 torque tube(the end broke off on a crash I just had)
1 set strut ends
1 tail spindle
2 tail shafts
changed servo gears twice because I use metal servo horns.
changed all bearings once

All times the heli the heli had no signs of vibes and flew great just a bit on the portly side, because of all the TSA metal bling stuff and bracing.

Crash after crash!
I have found the same to be true. Crash after crash she doesn't break much...

Geeezzzz I always thought that avoiding crashes was the name of the game---my TSA 700-E has about 200 flights with no crashes or bad arrivals but I do learn on my 550's and once proficient I take it to the 700.

Hey Sherman, what kind of flying are you doing to get to 200 without crashing?

Fly hard, fly low, fly till she leaves and never comes back.

I am looking to get into a 700N. Hard to beat the value of the Pro. I'd prefer a Platinum, but there's a good deal on a Pro. Any of the upgrades I should make while I'm building it? The silver boom and frames are kind of cool for something different.

Hes right about the parts qulity, I have tons of spares, none have imperfections. I believe they use the best materials. Never had a plastic or carbon failure. I fly it always like someone else gave me the keys to it.

Fly hard, fly low, fly till she leaves and never comes back.
