I wonder what heli it was. I'm guessing a CX2 or Esky Lama but they can't carry much... (easy and cheap for them to fly/buy)

That is amazing. It would have been neat to see it get shot down by the guards.

No fly zones for full size helis for a few years now. "Oiks" chartered a heli a while ago and forced the pilot to land in the exercise yard at Gartree making off with several inmates.
Most now have wire cables over the yards to prevent it happening again.

Yes, it truly would have been very neat! However, the authorities in the UK do not let us play with guns. IIRC the screws are not armed, only the Police Armed Response Units...and the Army.

It's bad enough trying to buy new Airsoft guns in this country these days because the law abiding citizens are easy prey for a spineless government who will not tackle the criminals carrying the REAL firearms. Hell, I'm surprised we still have one of the best, if not THE best Special Forces organisations in the world (the SAS) with the way our glorious leaders impose the nanny state...

AHEM... now that the meds have kicked in...we really need to see some CCTV footage so that we, the learned scholars of the flying rotor, can impart the knowledge of the type of heli concerned in this type of misdemeanour

I've looked at the photo used in the article and it shows a razor wire fence with a bloody pidgeon perched on the building........................and the bugger was asleep too. EPIC photographic FAIL IMHO!

Funny but not Funny, discourage this kind of thing before Tom Clancy writes it down
Great, plant another stupid Hollywood scenario in the minds security gestapo types around the world and soon we will have to have a background check and an FAA license to fly R/C helis. Already had
DHS threaten a friend with a photo camera ship. Seems "W" was coming to town, their electronic survey spotted his heli in his side yard and "knock knock" we're here to shut you down. Informed he would need a transponder and have to file a flight plan for any future flying. Alluded to the fact that his operation was a commercial venture and the FAA might like to look up his backside and do a sphincter inspection. Needless to say he sold all his equipment and gave up on helis.

Well....how do we fare with people messing about launching rockets and so on off thier RC helis?

Sooner or later some A Hole will use this type of thing for something nasty...THEN watch the authorities start clamping down on this sport/hobby!

Quality takes........time!

There is NOTHING funny about this. I can see it now.. we're all shut down by the government because one jackass uses a radio control helicopter to do something like this. This is just what we DO NOT want to see. The government has already taken a look at the RC hobby as a possible security threat. We can only hope that nothing like this happens again, and certainly nothing worse.

Next thing you know they'll be outlawing cars because the prisoners use them as gettaway vehicles.

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

I KNOW THERE'S NOWT FUNNY ABOUT THE WHOLE SITUATION, BUT I WAS LAUGHING AT THE FACT THAT A PIDGEON WAS USED IN THE PHOTO!

Because they said

"As a result of this, a search of the prison grounds and an accommodation block were carried out and nothing was found."
