Wow 10 pages of comments on a cool MIDAIR video. Who'd a Thunk It!!!!
With that kind of response, Mark Ryder should be giving prizes and gift certificates for more MIDAIR videos. It's a AFV kind of thing.
So, as they say on AFV, get out there without your spotters and send in those videos so we can roast your nuts, club and friends here on RunRyder.

Make both spotters split the crash costs and give them the publishing rights to the movie!

That's the way the cookie crumbles, that's reality so just accept the fact that sh-t happens. Wipe your eyes, lick your wounds and go order some parts.

edit for buddy below,

While I did not read all the BS in here each pilot had someone with them in the video, at least that is how it appeared on the video.For what it is not worth-the effort of a full readIt was intended as a joke nothing more.

Makes you wonder about a system where just being born here allows you to vote
Amazing, jump into the deep end with a shallow-end mentality. Read and then engage mouth. If you were up to speed, there were no spotters being used at this event. A living breathing example of why they sell ARF helis, because folks don't read the manual or do their homework first.

John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment

Matt 7:2-5 "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged [if we judge with an evil heart or dark intent, His judgment of us will reflect it; if we judge nobly with honesty and justice, His judgment of us will reflect that, too], and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you [if we use extremes or exaggerations or other ignoble means, our judgment will reflect it and judging with fairness and compassion will garner likewise in His judgment of us]. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye [point out his sins, "minor" in Jesus' example here] and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye [our own sins, even and especially those we will not admit, magnified by our selective blindness]? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' [tell him of his "minor" sins] when all the time there is a plank in your own eye [that there are greater or the same sins in our own lives which we do nothing about or think we are above]? You hypocrite* [pointing out the sins of others while by pretense thinking of ourselves as above sin], first take the plank out of your own eye [sincerely ask the Lord for forgiveness and learn and live the Truth and Light by His Word], and then you will see clearly [be in a righteous position] to remove the speck from your brother's eye [to judge and to help him out of his bondage to sin]."

For real... how the hell does religion and bible passages have ANYTHING to do with the issue at hand?

remember not everyone believes in the same things so have some consideration for others and keep religious BS ( of all flavors) out of things.

Exactly -- and JohnBS8 isn't exactly a paragon of virtue. Here's what he said about returning a heli after its sale price had been refunded by the seller.
this is not even close to a draw. send the heli back?? HELL NO!! after a year of waiting for what was supposed to be part of the deal? Id keep the heli,take the money and move on!!
Typical dishonorable contradictory religious bullchit.

Sorry but this Nation was founded on religion and people wanting to worship God, whether you want to or not!

People have freedom of speech, however it is people like johnbs that make people that talk about God look bad.

This is a heli forum after all!

Wrong! This Nation was founded on the wise inclination to be free to believe whatever one chooses, including the wiser choice to pursue existential sanity.

Right at 19 sec just before the helis touch, That would make a great poster if it could be blown up into a bigger pic!
Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Actually, no one owes ANYONE ANYTHING.

Once our toys are in the air, ALL BETS ARE OFF.
Totally disagree in this situation. Ive been going to heli funflys for 11 years and all of them have some sort of similiar rule saying if your going to be doing high speed manouvers do them high and over the flight stations...NOT 10 feet off the deck down the length of the entire dam runway....the guy took it up high and put it into an intentional dive to get maximum speed as he crossed the field..

The spotter (in the middle of the field) can not be held responsible at all.. in this instance the guy doing the high speed pass clearly had no regard as to the local flight rules which shouldve been addressed before hand in a pilots meeting.. And most definately should pay for that guys helicopter who was adhering to the rules... he was in his flight box with a spotter enjoying his heli 10 feet in front of him, spotter watching for the 3d'ers to either side of him.. he cant see a guy 4 stations down doing a very high speed pass 10 feet off the deck just a few feet in front of the stations... This is idiotic and if I were a safety officer at that field i'd have a stern talk with him and say if he pulls another bone head stunt like that he can say hello to a ban from the field. I say that cause we have a guy in our club who was hit by a simple trainer 40 plane on the flightline and it broke his leg, clean break.. Now imagine that heli, doing the speed it was doing and with those blades, hitting that pilot instead of his heli.. just listen to the impact again.... total bonehead move.
If this guy doesnt man up and admit he totally F*&^cked up and apologises and offer to pay for the repairs then that just will show what kind of character the guy really is... no dicipline, no regard for others or rules and a cheap pos chump .....

If that's the type of irresponsible flying that's going to be encouraged at that event then that's one event I certainly wouldn't want to be a part of.
