    Ha!!!! I like what Bully did there so I'll try and see what we come up with.... These are just the crashes where something broke right? Otherwise we're talking astronomical amounts. And these are ALL pilot error...

    Syma S107G - 1 crash, tail fin $5

    Syma S033G - None (only 6 flights though)

    Solo Pro 270A - 1 bad one, replaced the skids with Xtreme skids $7.50

    Art-Tech Firefox - 2 crashes, broken swash and 2 seesaws $15 (does breaking my mothers chandelier count?)

    Solo Pro 228P - 4 crashes, 2 canopies, 1 seesaw, 1 flybar $35

    Art-Tech Falcon 400 - 4 crashes, 3 sets of blades, 1 canopy, 1 skid, 1 gyro $100 or so

    Walkera Ladybird Quad - 1 crash, (don't try out running cars), broke the motor arm, repaired $0

    Hausler 450 SE V2 - 2 crashes (only 4 flights and mostly because I'm a stupid noob who thought RTF meant what it said), 1 canopy, 2 sets of blades, 1 complete new Align head, 1 Align tail boom, 1 Align mainshaft, 1 Align flybar, about $270 (I now call it my Hausler/Align 450 SE V2). It's ready to go again after tearing it all apart and readjusting everything!

    RealFlight Sim - Zillions of crashes $0

    Here's mine:

    mCPXs-- a bunch.

    130Xs-- Quite a few.

    Most of these crashes are pick them up, check them over and fly again, but I've gone through a few main gears on each, a couple of tail booms on each, a couple of torque tube shafts on my 130Xs, a few sets of blades, and a couple pairs of blade grips. I crash these little guys a lot 'cause I push 'em hard trying to learn new things.

    Trex 250-- two times, both by trying to go inverted with self level (SK720) on (Duh!!). Tail booms and feathering/main shafts both times, cracked the Fusuno cano one one crash, chipped my Gaui blades on the other.

    300X--once. Tail servo went out in the middle of a flip. Tail boom, tail shaft, tail braces, tail case, tail grips, main gear, main shaft, set of Gaui blades, stripped two cyclic servos. Quite a bit of damage, but then again, it was rolling right along, headed my way when it let go. I had the instant choice of hitting throttle hold or getting out of the way. I got.

    I've been lucky with my 450s and my 500. Plus, I haven't been flying them that much this year, and I don't get too wild with them. Yet.

    Oh, yeah, ran my 120 SR into a power line. Broke the main shaft.

    Sawed the port wing on my J3 neatly in half trying to fly it through a barbed wire fence............


    All in all, not that bad a year. And, still a few days left!!


    Merry Christmas, everyone!!!!

    lots of crashes for all of us LOL. i don't think i'm gonna fly this year any more unless my friends call me to meet up at the field. I hate to add more to the list haha.. $$$$ i really think 2013 will have more crashes in the making. pessimistic, but accroding to my weekly schedule, i'll have more time to fly which increases the chances of crashes. i'm already prepared to accept a couple of crashes from my Gobby. LOL

    Merry Christmas Gang......
