Whats the longest you have gone without crashing, if ever?

Ive had my Mini2 since January and according to the Flight data centre in the DJI fly app I have flown
69 Km, 11.7 Hours and 102 flights. Thankfully Ive never had a crash, I just wondered if Im lucky or anyone else got a lot more distance under their belt without crashes?
I tend to plan my flights as much as possible for example today was flying parallel to some Pylons.

Thanks
Andy

Mines since mid August last year. Never crashed once with the DJI camera ship but the fpv quad has seen more ground than sky :joy: Got a long way to go before getting the long haul badge

Discounting my FPV Acro quads, as some crashes are actually decent landings (or is it the other way round?), I managed seven years before I dirt-napped one of my camera-ships.

LOL, I hope not but I accept its going to happen with a bird or something

Rarely with the DJIs, frequently with the FPVs :slight_smile:

No Crashes yet touch wood!
I’m clearly not flying far enough per flight by the looks of things.

Three crashes in five years… One was a motor burning out,on a hubsan the other two were user error on a yuneec typhoon. Prop spun off at 50ft up. and a smart mode sensed me too close and flew back into a washing pole.

All depends what you do I guess, Im currently on a big project flying a canal route so that means long flights but I have to do it in small sections to keep VLOS.

three isnt bad in 5 years, tech failure
