The Crash - Flat Battery
My Caliber crashed on 7th December 2003but she's rebuilt now. Important learning point... don't try to get that one last flight when the battery is low!

Another Crash - 'L' Lever broke in flight
15/04/04, This time the crash took out most of the heli, as you can see below. I think the cause was the L lever breaking during the flight as I suddenly lost most of the control over the collective and cyclic; the plastic had most likely been weakened from previous crashes. Shame because she always flew very steadily. Anyway, that's it for this bird, not worth replacing the parts and I am going to get a Raptor 50 as my everyday heli for trying out new things.
