Completely agree, especially for a big company like Blade. I realize it has self stabilizing and panic buttons, but you should never fly that close to yourself or anyone.

I kinda think it's photoshopped....

Don't think anyone could calmly stare at that.....being that close.

Also, notice the vertical fence plank support just to the right of the heli main shaft....there's no gap in the vertical plank as there is in the vertical at the right of the pic.....

And that plank width is slightly different.

Besides, who the heck flies a heli in a crouch?

If anything is shopped, it's the guy.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

still implies a bad example

Flying too close; no eye protection; no easy retreat when you're sittin and no long island iced tea's while flying! I remember the manual for my first heli Kyosho ep concept had visual safety tips featuring a kid wearing a baseball cap...how times have changed!

I do a great decending funnel!

I did not go "WHOA!!!" when I saw the add. Why not? Maybe because I am blessed with common sense, a desire for self preservation, and of course an understanding of liability and personal responsibility.

I'm the kind of person who DOESNT need the label on the bleach bottle telling me to not drink it. Nor am I the kind of person that needs the disclaimer on the car commercials telling not to try this at home.

+1!

There is far too much 'health and safety' these days and as a result less stupid people are dying and the world population is increasing exponentially which is why there are so many problems in the world! Too many people! Once they find a cure for Cancer the world really will be screwed! Sounds awful but it's true.

Exactly. Same reason I don't care when car commercials show them hydroplaning all over the place or speeding around mountain roads in commercials. This world has become such overbearing pile of nannys it's practically unbearable.

Agreed....but...

Sometimes you just have to let the stupid people weed themselves out before they water down the gene pool any worse than they have already managed to.

Remove all the warning labels and the stupidity problem will solve itself eventually. I mean there's always one idiot in the village, but they wouldn't be a majority anymore.

Am I missing something? That is a micro heli right? I may get flamed but I do some pretty stupid stuff with my micros because they can't hurt anything. Now if someone wants those blades that close to their eyeballs, that's up to them. I have no problem with Blade or this ad. If it were a 90 sized heli, then that would be a little different.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool
