You need to practice an odd mix of situational awareness,
And tunnel vision.
Awareness of your surroundings,
But focus on the bird.
I was aware this bug landed on me just before the 2 minute mark of my timer. But I ignored it until the final 4 min beep and landed.
Nothing special in the arena of Heli tricks. But an extremely valuable, and developable skill. You'll have mosquitos, and bees, and wasps to contend with. It's normally funny to watch people freak out about a little bug.
An over reaction or even a reaction could cause a dangerous crash. Dangerous as in, your Heli hits you or someone else. Take nothing for granted. If you watch enough Heli crash videos you hear a lot of,
"I don't know what happened"
And that happens to us all.
But less with experience.
And a lot less a lot earlier with perspective.
Goblin! where have you been all my life?
