It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiener".

Thanks.

Most important to me is to illuminate. If entertainment also happens that's a bonus. I know that's not always the case.

I'm 42 and sit around in my underwear drinking flavored water and eating jelly beans dipped in chocolate and singing Barry Manilow songs.

Does that count??

You've illuminated far more than you should have. Dim the lights before posting again, please.

i think it is a great idea bearing a safe location to perform the sacrifice. i would prefer to use a pellet rifle or a .22. anything bigger is certain to bring it down too quickly. i just hope he video tapes it. heck, drunk drivers kill more folks than many other things but that doesn't keep people from doing it or getting themselves rehab thru the 12 step program.

some of the local airplane funflys shoot at planes with paintball guns to see how long it takes to bring it down. and this is at ama fields at ama sanctioned events. large numbers of spectators as close to the action as possible. as i recall they were shooting paintballs at helis in tiawan recently at the align funfly of all places. video and all, and were also flying thru an obstacle course which we all know is designed for max carnage. most helis don't make it thru. not a big deal.

it is a blast to watch.

Hi

i think it is a great idea bearing a safe location to perform the sacrifice. i would prefer to use a pellet rifle or a .22.
-----------------
Few years back we killed a old Zagi with a 12 bore shoot gun, this was lightly loaded with Clay/Skeet shot and it took about 25 shots to kill it, the pellets hit it ok but weren't doing much damage at all, just passing right thought the model!

Well, from some of the attitudes displayed here, I guess we know who the supply clerks will be if their country ever has to defend it's self to any great degree.

Just for the record,,,

Myself and a few others, have participated in this thread for a bit of a laugh.
(Also two other threads (of which are obvious))

So for those that don't see the 'Funny' side.

GET A LIFE.

There I've said it.

I agree it's just an open debate if you got your feelings hurt then you are taking it WAY to seriously.
In the spirit of good fellowship I want you all to answer three questions for me.
Hopefully when we're done it will show how most of us prolly AGREE on alot more then you think. This will only work if you answer honestly and with your gut feelings , not to make a point aimed at someone for pissing you off, not for the sake of the argument, just follow the rules and tell me yes or no from your gut feelings,,,
TO START;
*****We all agree that he has the RIGHT to do it,(do not confuse this with IS it right to do it VERY IMORTANT, go back and re-read this part untill you understand!!! We all know it's America, land of the free,,,
***We know for a fact is that the heli is a Evo 50, and I quote" with the best of everything one it",,,so a quick list of things include (some I'm assuming are there),,
-Gy611 gyro less than a year old ,9256 servo
-9252 servos (or better)
-gv-1 gov
-OS 50 Hyper
-full metal head
-V-Blades
-9 channel receiver
-carbon bling
-Musle pipe or SB50 Hatori
-Fiberglass canopoy, custom paint (guessing)
-Fromeco batteris and reg (guessing again)
-Evo 50 kit
****We also know he plans to shoot up at the heli when it's about 50 feet in the air with a 50 caliber sniper rifle. on a 1000 yard private range, after doing some "sick 3D flying"
****We also know that when questioned about the trajectory of the bullet, and the possibilities of it leaving the range, he said the range was surrounded by privatly owned land and if someone was there to get hurt it was there own fault...
*****MOST of this info can be found on the first page of the original post, the rest you will have to dig for,,but it is there,,,,,
.

So the three questions are;
ONE
YES or NO,,,
Do you really think it's right/good/prudent/responsible/smart/nessesary/kewl/
to dystroy the above list of state of the art products available today for helicopters WHEN there is an alternative that will serve the very same purpose for the video
.
.
TWO
YES or NO

Is it really safe and responsible for a person to use a weapon of the caliber in the above mentioned way.
.
.
THREE
YES OR NO
If he shot from an elevated platform, down at the heli, and used the above mentioned package to fly the "sick 3D" portion of the video THEN landed the heli and used the band of merry onlookers (most of them skilled heli addicts) to spend a few moments taking the bling off (or switching the heli out entirely with a POS heli) THEN flying it for the "shoot out" would it be a better, more productive, positive, maby even worthy (he could raffle the parts off and do something GOOD with the money) sick and safer, video??
.
.
So my answers are;
NO
NO
YES
.
.
Let's see your HONEST ANSWERS,,,
and then maybe all the bad feelings this circus has created can begin to go away,,,

QUICK! ,,,can someone turn the gravity off for just a second,,,,

wurthless,

The exercise of personal choice is NOT an open debate.

In the spirit of good fellowship I want you to quit picking on something that has absolutely nothing to do with you.

Why don't you spend your time on something more fruitful like convincing the Iraqis that they shouldn't keep killing each other ?

Or are you just hanging around here because you have an audience ?

You are true to your handle.

Ain't no one on here going to shot down $1600.00 worth of heli. Just a fool post to keep most of you pumping and jumping. If he does it, I want a vid.
