I was already worried with ground racecar as each small piece costs a fortune. flying RC very costly as most of the time it's a total loss.

safest RC... indoor boat?

you'll find this interesting Sidney:




The Stanford Autonomous Helicopter performing power-off descent and landing under computer control.

Helicopters can glide and land in a flight mode known as "autorotation" without engine power. In this mode, the helicopter's descent keeps the rotor blades spinning, allowing the computer to maintain control. A carefully timed flare just before impact expends the blades' rotational energy to slow the helicopter before touchdown.

Visit http://heli.stanford.edu for more.
