Don't try this at home!

No seriously, i mean it... DON'T!
Talented but very dangerous. Worth a watch though as it's incredible!

Re: Don't try this at home!

Saw the title of the video and then saw the description, thought they were going to fly a full-size chopper in a truck, which would have been more impressive (especially considering a full-size helichopper wouldn't even fit!!)... Huh

I know from personal experience that the upside down bit is extremely tricky.

Re: Don't try this at home!

My brother-in-law had an accident with a model helicopter. Cut his face up pretty badly, lucky not to lose an eye - or worse. Cry
When his wife got home from the hospital she took a hammer to the helicopter!! No surprise there.
Short vid on youtube here. Not for the squeamish.

Crikey..
The guys who made the video i posted in the beginning of this thread have done far worse things - standing on a skateboard, holding the heli and using it as a propellor for instance. I'm sure we can all imagine the consequences of that going wrong but they've also done some other incredible stuff such as pulling a ferrari with a single helicopter lol.
Oh.. and i just showed my missus the heli/lorry video... it's made her feel queasy!!!  Shocked
