How many times have you crashed your drone?

Crashed mine poor Phantom for 3rd time 2 hours ago.  This poor thing is taking a beating.  Good thing my hubby is an engineer and good with his hands!

Just once when I first bought my first drone 5 years ago. It had no GPS.

Not once, GPS and object avoidance normally takes care of that

My racing drone I've crashed a number of times.  There is no GPS.  My DJI Phantom 3, has never been crashed.

Assuming you keep your camera out of sport mode and have all the sensors working for you.  How are you crashing?  I've not crashed any of my drones, not even once.
