I thought the same thing when i bought my trex 600! It is a perfect heli with perfect electronics, and put it together, so i didnt have to worry about that. I still check all my screws and stuff after every other flight.

This can only lead to one eventuality. I have to wonder though if i went and spent the $2000 plus to get this thing totally pimped out and rocking all the best gear available......

WOULD I STILL HAVE TO WORRY EVERY SINGLE FLIGHT THAT THE ELECTRONICS WILL FAIL!?!?! not might, BUT WILL!! like how i'm beginning to feel about my walkera's above the v120 class. I understand failure happens, but my 4f200's ESC didn't last 25 flights. It also has had to have 4 sets of servos replaced just from taking it out of the Walkera aluminum case and stripping gears. Not even from a crash, just putting on a blade holder or something like that. That's pretty horrible: "Lets go flying! WOOT got the 4f200 righ-AWWW!!! SOB!! stripped a servo taking it out of the case AGAIN!" - Shouldn't be that easy! jeez.

My v450's ESC was on literal electrical fire on MY flight 2, stock tail servo went out around flight 14ish and replacement tail servo went bad around flight 16 or 17 and I just now ordered another STOCK replacement just to see if my RX has bad firmware and is going to blow this one out too in like 5-10 flights. I suppose if the stock one lasts 10-15 flights it would be safe to say i can order a futaba without worrying about risking a good servo right? I would really hate to have to buy a Sab Goblin to fix my tail servo issue.
