Should have donated it to someone who didn't have money to get their first heli....

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Try drugs

That sucked, at least find someone who can work a camera. That was the definition of rednecks.

These are probablly the same type of guys that would have sued the helo company and lighter company had someone died. True rednecks.

actually that was very dangerous, mainly because you didnt get the heli away very far, and you were spinning around, never knowing when that rocket was going to fire, with no control when it did. a safer approach would have been by, getting the heli up and away from everyone, and keeping the nose pointed away from people, when that heli went down, it wasnt that far from you guys. I know people like to do crazy things sometimes all in fun, but that could have turned out alot worse....this is just my honest opinion

I know that this is done for fun, but I couldn't imagine taking one of my helis and destroying it like that for "fun". I wouldn't do it to one that I didn't even like. I don't know if you would call them "rednecks". I'm from the South, and in some circles I would be called a redneck, and I certainly don't want to be classified in the same lot with these folks. Most rednecks can't afford to do that to a perfectly good heli.

Just to clarify, I've lost the control of the rear rotor at the begin of the fly, it's for that the 2 cameramen weren't that good, they were both running...and me too! It's also due to this fact, that the heli was already on the ground when the rocket has exploded...
Next time I should take a better heli :-)

1.Needs a beter camera guy
2.needs a MUCH BIGGER explosive
3.dont use a heli !use a plank

I liked the part when the heli bit him back towards the end. Why the #3!! would you pull a heli with a running engine out of the weeds without shutting the engine first? Of course the blades start spinning again and some poor soul gets slapped a few times.
