you know, I don't have a bit of a problem with someone doing that, I would never do it but if I wanted to I think I should have the freedom to do it as the only person I am endangering is myself.

now I am not getting that close to those blades but if he wants to then fine.

Hay thats Nick Jones!
Don't worry guys, it's not his Trex500 or his right arm. So no need to be alarmed.

So your saying it would be safer to do on 2.4?

well with 2.4 you would not have the antennae up in the air for the heli to whack.

l`d say apart from the catch it was a text book save. Tail goes mental, get some height and hit throttle hold, auto in. At no time did he panic, that`s why man and machine were still in one bit. That heli would have been trashed by a lot of people.

I thought that was pretty cool. However, it may have worked out differently make such a quick move and it would have hurt.
