I have had a few rough landings but haven't done anything more than superficial damage (scratches, dents in foam, bent landing gear wire.)
I just want to know what you consider to be a crash.
I define a crash as a crash if glue of some sort is needed to exact a repair. If no glue is needed it's not a crash.
My father on the other hand was of a different school of thought. He always said "there are no such things as crashes, only hard landings".
