Guys..... if this was Spain, it is the land where they have bull fights and people in the stands get killed or badly injured on a regular basis. The USA is not like that country. We do not take risks. In Russia it is worse than Spain. In the Islands people jump off flimsy towers using vines as bungee cords, and it is a "right of passage" that kills quite a few young men.
I hear that some crazy guys fly jets off of ships at sea. Some of them do not come home. Some do survive. Yup, that is the most dangerous 4.5 acres around..... but it does not make the news.

Yes it was dangerous. Perhaps poor judgment. Could have been on the news..... but it was not. Thank the Greater Being and move on.

MY POINT EXACTLY

Different country, different rules, different societies. If the lad wanted to fly in the UK or USA, then he wouldn't be allowed to go over the people's heads, enough said.

What's up with FM? everybody's jumping ship to 2.4 so we're practically interference free!
(seriously, yeah, you'd expect a LOT of RF interference in a TV studio...)

Well, don't keep me in suspense any longer - what what his score??

If through some miracle he won $43,000, then they don't know how good heli flying can get. I also bet there would be more than a few pilots at the next auditions!

Totally true. Given the willingness to accept risk, perhaps Spain was a good place to do this! He did not hurt anyone, and it exposed a lot of people to the sport!
If more people saw us fly safely and do a nice job it would help the hobby. It is tough to fly to music and make it look good, but that adds certain qualities as well.

Then it would be in Spain & not the USA.

OK people. I've watched the vid again with liberal use of the pause button. I reckon he's using spread spectrum - at around 0.32 in the vid just after the lad is turning back round to face the audience, there's a bit sticking out of the back of the Futaba 9C - this could well be a FASST module with its antenna pointing to the right hand side of the Tx and not up towards the carrying handle. Yes, look again at 1.27 or so - the FASST antenna is across his hand. He was using 2.4GHz OK that doesn't stop heli mechanical failures or assorted eletrical failures and or brown outs, but the radio is as risk-free as you're going to get for the average joe to use. No doubt some military/space systems are more robust

OK here is the next task for all who think the worst.

Go make a really good video while flying safely and keeping time to some rock song, and do a nice interpretation of the music as well. (Note that the song made reference to flying and being lifted as he accelerated vertically). Go out and do a truly great job and put it on youtube! I'll watch it for sure!

I thought that the lad did a respectable job of music interpretation and I think he flew OK. Go out and do a better job in all respects and then we will listen.

^^ I agree Jay... Also it does not matter what country it is. Sure if nothing happens it seems cool. But if someone got seriously hurt then it would not be good for the hobby regardless. How can we say it's ok just because it's in another country? I understand they may view it differently, but that would change in a heartbeat if someone got seriously hurt or even killed.Compass Atom 500

I've been here for quite a while, but it doesn't mean I am a 3D god or anything.
Just because someone only joined 11 days ago, it doesn't mean that they are newbs to helis..

Anyway - the lad was flying on 2.4GHz so we can all sleep safer in our beds

While I am your brother in arms, I disagree and think that statement is way to general. It also shows the Blog mentality in a bright glare.

I am sure you wouldn't dismiss someone's opinion like that in person, until the person proves thier lack of grey matter.

It is just a symptom of the Blog mentality here that detracts from the Heli forum experience.
"how dare you say that, you haven't been here long enough"

But, I understand, I have done it, too.

Heli Nut,

You miss the point, he was not flying safe, and I did not watch to critique his skills, only the blatant disregard for safety. Who cares if he flew well or just average. HE should have known better, the shows producers should have known better, and the captive potential victims, whether they were warned or not, were in mortal danger.

period.

Yes, the guy did a good job and people thought it was cool, after he landed. In the mean time, they were scared sh$tless!
How many of us would go out past the flight line at a fun fly and watch the heli from the flying field? Not me! But different rules in different countries I guess. I've seen too many things go wrong mechanically to ever want to sit in an audience and have someone do this over head. No wonder people were cowering for cover! But the guy pulled it off, quite brave of him i would say, considering he put everyone watching at risk!
We as pilots have a responsibility as well, to consider everyone else's safety as well as our own. Sometimes we all have close calls!
