If you zoom in you can see he has his finger on throttle hold, in case anything goes wrong.

That's the old school way to adjust the tracking. Find an old Miniature manual.

We have a Japanese fly at our field that does the same thing everytime he comes out to fly. I cringe when I see that and try to explain to him about Murphy's Law.

Looks to me that the guy is on private property.
Not smart, but his choice and without consequences to any of us.

Exactly. But some people are busy bodies and have nothing better to do then to whine and cry about someone doing something on thier private property. Not saying what he is doing is smart nor would I do it but since it does look like he is on private property its really no one else's business.

AND FWIW the heli has a fenestron tail, unlike this one!

Are you seriously saying that people did that to test tracking? Wow.

It's not that hard to set up the head so tracking is close enough to fly and observe from a distance. Considering that a heli that size has more power than your typical lawnmower spinning the same size blades, I don't think I'd be doing that as a regular thing.....
