I love how they keep calling it a toy.... it makes me think twice about how much I spend on my "toy"

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Cool video though, seeing it from above like that. You can just tell those guys are going "oh ****", and then they're long gone by the time anyone gets there :-).

most likely one of the residence got annoyed at the noise, and figured by calling it in, they would stop.

I kinda hope its just the zoom on the camera that makes it look that close, because it would be VERY unerving to think a full size helicopter pilot would be foolish enough to get that close.

Didn't look cool enough to be an Evo, lol. Oh well dont sweat it fellas, you know one thing is for certain. Most people when they see one up close and get some 3D absorbtion they never refer to it as a toy again. Most people in fact I am sure check their shorts afterwards, lol.

TOY I hate that its like calling a helicopter a chopper... Since when does a helicopter belong in the kitchen!!!

Im taking my turbine out there !!!! ROFL

On a serious note I think the media calling it a toy is bad just for the simple fact it gives the wrong perception to the public. Did you see that lady? It could cause a fire; next thing you know it will be "dangerous toy" and then could hurt small children... You know how it is in america, land of the paranoid!!

If it's any consolation, they did call it an expensive toy.

Judging by the looks in the firemen's eyes, I'd bet the local club's gonna get a couple new members.

haha Yeah exactly what i thought when i saw how the firemen were talking about it. They just had that look in their eye like when you know someone is about to get hooked on this smack and within months they will all be bankrupt and divorced. Gotta love this hobby!

Dang right! Especially in SoCal! They're already probably looking for those pilots to slap them with a lawsuit!

Not good publicity for the hobby. And dang - there must not have been any interesting news that day!

We didn't have our daily car chase so they had to fill the time with something.
