Moving to the much more powerful V120D02S, I had trouble in controlling it at first. I had a high speed inverted crash onto a metal spectator stand within the first minute of flight. There was an awful racket and I was prepared for the worse. To my surprise, the heli was not damaged and I flew immediately afterwards.

This is why I prefer to fly just one heli for a whole session, even if they are the same model.
I have a hard time going from the Genius to the V120DO2S. The V120 is just so much faster. I'm at a point where I would never crash anymore, except there seems to be a "dead spot" when I fly past the rooftops of me and my neighbors house. Both helis will just slide off into oblivion and I have to run out into the front yards to look for them. Last time was an awfully plastic crashing on cement sound, took me 10 mins to find the heli. The canopy popped off and was 10 ft away. A bit of scuffing, but no damage. No problem in the open field, just over rooftops, past them actually.
