Well, this is all good since he was "Aware of the Danger". That's what protected him.

I believe the actual quote was .."he is fully aware of how lucky he was" ...and he went on to say that he will reconsider close in flying. Very different.

The awareness crack is just from a long dead thread.

He's copying and pasting it all over the internet.

Getting hit with throttle hold on is a lot different from getting hit with the blades under full power. Still, this guy is one lucky dude. Could have been much worse.

"Look at me, I hope a sponsor is watching"

Once again, another one flying to low and close. Trying to show off and why? Trying to compete with everyone else there and showing off. Take it up about 4 feet and wow, it looks even better.
Don't need this at such a big event. Be smarter then this.
Just my thought

The only thing that really matters is no one was seriously hurt, lucky or not. I am very glad this ended the way it did for him and his family.

My flying buddies and myself discuss these idiots that fly too close to themselves and others,its a topic of discussion quite often in our group, its only a matter of time before it happens again. This isnt a personal attack on the pilot, but a comment in general about all the pilots that do the same exact thing as this kid.

This kid is lucky it didnt injure him severely or decapitate him, or someone else for that matter. There needs to be a line drawn on how close to yourself and your spotter your allowed to fly at events, you wanna go kill yourself on your own time then thats your business but it has no place at an event.

Don't go to the events that scare you.

You don't have to ban something I enjoy watching so you can enjoy watching something else.

And a matter of time before what happens again?...Someone almost getting hurt?

There are causes out there that need good preachers.
This ain't one.

How many people were killed at heli events last year?

You in to blood sports mcrackin? My comment is flying way to close to people, not close to the ground. Pay attention before commenting.

I read it right.

Don't go if it scares you.
Leave the people it doesn't scare alone to go and enjoy it.

GUYS, GUYS!

Huge kudos for hitting throttle hold! AND lucky the rotor was spinning in the direction such that it hit him over the back. If spinning the other way, his gut would have taken the blow.

But he was too skinny. Now, a beer gut, sure that would have spared the heli completely. LOL
