Ah yes, but gentlemen: Darwin had a theory that stupidity would cure itself over just a few generations....
And now we have the "Darwin Awards", given each year to those who remove themselves from the gene pool by acts of brazen stupidity.
example:
A person who puts explosives in his underwear to blow himself up (thus going to heaven to meet 75 virgins) does not have the brains God gave a stone..... Think about that for a few seconds before you laugh about hot rocks or leaving ole woody back on earth....

Lord hear our silent prayers to Thee
For those who fly from ships at sea.

And just how many generations of people have their been? The stupid will not weed themselves out. Especially not when we manufacture laws to protect them; to help them live and procreate. I say it's just a matter of time until the stupid inherit the earth. Anyone seen idiocracy?

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I caught that movie by mistake on Comedy Central. I thought it was original and Funny. I think Mike Judge wrote and directed it, Office Space was another good one Mike did.

It's an aircraft. treat it as such. Just educate where you can. Hell, I learn everytime I go out and fly and unfortunately I fly alone. The wife always know where I am at and knows when I am to return in case the Helo eats me. I fix CH-53Es for a living so I have a little different respect for correct maintenance and set-up. I conduct FCFs just like our pilots do and phase inspection and dailys just like the big boys. This has kept me at two mild crashes in 4 years of flying. Both of which were early on and lost orientation at a distance. Calling everyone stupid accomplishes nothing. If he is on a forum somewhere seek him out and kindly let him know the dangers of his actions. Like was already said, a noob with no experienced teacher to let him know of the potential hazards, is bound to get caught up in the moment like all of us have done and some still do. Educate, educate, educate. You only know what you know. As a Father I sometimes get caught up with my kids but they only know what they know. Adults are no different. What an experienced flier thinks is common sense would be alien to those that just marvel at the fact that they are flying for the first time. I helped teach my neighbor to fly planes after he spent hundreds on planes trying to learn by himself. I had to constantly remind myself that he was new and had to remind him of boundaries, the sun and all the little things that we experienced guys take for granted. Teach where you can and hope it sinks in. Horse to water thing, on some though.

If he gets rid of that gy240 I'll take it still flying one myself and love it. Flying it on a R50 setup for scale flight.

I just received a PM from someone essentially saying I was a fool for suggesting someone try to adjust their needle valve as shown in the photo...

For the record, I was just being sarcastic!

I do not, nor have I ever, suggest you try to adjust your needle valve as shown in the photo.
