I got my Eco used. So this list is as close as I can make out, it might be off a little here and there.

My Eco has had three crashes. First version, how I bought it, hit a tree. Second pulled out of a loop too low, landed flat but had a blade strike and broke a lot of stuff. Third crash came after one of the tail blade grips came off while in FFF.
