The guy in the red shirt needs a little speech bubble "I'm not worthy!"

Be careful though, I hear these guys are from Texas...

" i'd be pretty upset if i was the one out there on the flightline in the proper pilots box and turned around to see a guy flying behind me where i cant keep an eye on him.... unsafe"

Optical illusion.
The photographer was flat on the ground.
The Rappy was only about 1.5 meters off the deck.
And if s.... happens, I have no problem putting it down... hard.
Anyway, impossible to fly a heli in that flight pattern.
Heli's and planks don't mix.

But.... point taken.
The club will look into a separate flying area for me, since I'm the only active heli guy !!!!

Nice photo! I thought it was all photoshop but apparently it's real. Only the raptor is a bit too sharp, that's why I thought it was photoshop. Maybe you can come with another trick to solve that?

No trick photography or editing here.
The guys are about 20 meters behind the rappy, and the photographer was lying flat.
I don't normally fly in that spot, just lifted it off for the shot.
We only noticed the end result the next day when going through the files, thought it cute.
The camera aperture was quite small, that's why the guys in the back still are somewhat in focus.

Stock, only slipped on four sections of rubber hose for flying off concrete.

That looks like Laredo. What's up Doug. You should come up here and fly, just bring some ski's or floats so your heli doesn't sink in the snow. And bring lots of warm clothes.

What's up pchuckie? Yea that's the latest bird in the Laredo fleet.

What's with the dude who can't deal with custom installs? I bet he thinks I painted the canopy with Krylon as well!

I would make a trip to the big east, but no tengo mittens!!!
