Yes but the question isn't how many crashes. It is how many helicopters have you crashed. If one helicopter is crashed multiple times. Well...you know?

Technically, one helicopter was crashed. But is that accurate?

Raptor x 5
Trex 450 x 2
Sceadu x 1
SDX x 5
Freya x 1
Trex 700 x 1

Blade 130 x infinity. I won't count these. There's only one that did it in. Spent more time on head than skids.

So in sum, I have crashed 5 different helis 15 times.

Logo 550sx, Crashed twice but no hard feelings cause they were pilot error.

TDR, has never been crashed and i plan on keeping it that way.

Blade 300X, I really lost count and don't even want to think about it but repair bills where more than $1K and close to 2 in the one year period i had it.

Blade 500X, Crashed 10x in one month and gave up on it.
Repair bills for the 500X where a few hundreds. just by reselling it i lost about $500 with extra batteries and no one really wanted it.

Knowing what to and what not to buy can save you thousands in this hobby.
