A sponsored pilot will for the most part fly more than average Joe. so chances of them getting into a crash is higher weather they are the best in the world or not .
Hard to be general with this kind of thing. Depends on the person. Some guys care for their equipment better or have better equipment and fly carefully for their experience level while some do not. Some have more reliable helicopters. Some guys replace stuff before it fails while some do not. A very, very few people are reckless regardless of experience while many are extremely safety concious. You also have the guy who only hovers for years or advances at a snails pace with a low incident level and high flying hours. Some people simply have a dark cloud over their shoulders. I see way more planes hit the dirt than helicopters per beginner flying hour. I've smacked in more planes learning the ropes myself years ago than Carter has liver pills! Helicopter guys generally are more cautious due to the rotors nature inclusive to associated and potential training crash costs.

I see way more machines going in with beginners and sport flyers at funflys than sponsored people if that means anything. Some sponsored pilots fly way less that you may think they do. Some people fly harder and closer to the dirt with small electric helicopters than the big ones due to the fix factor. I don't think crashing is so cut and dry based upon flying hours, grand experience reduces crashing by a big fat factor.

Yea Experience does reduce the risk sort of speak, and how the kids say it now days Stephen is the "phat" factor, .

I had to looks that one up!
An adjective mainly slang used in pop culture to express approval. Hence, someone or something that is phat could be cool, entertaining, intelligent, attractive or otherwise to be admired. When the word first surfaced in the 1960s, men generally used it to describe attractive, or "fine", women. This meaning of phat has been assigned numerous backronym meanings, most commonly Pretty, Hot And Tempting, but also including others such as "Pretty Hips, and "Pretty, Hot And Thick."
If I called my wife fat that I'd get a smack and no supper!
