Flying a brand new untested heli in a city park with several people in close proximity playing. Not very smart...

I didn't see anything in the video that warranted the title of "baddest machine". Was slow and boring, closed the video after 10 seconds of flight.

The tail rotors look great as that's the most we see in the video (I felt as though I was being mooned most of the time). I did get to see the nose breifly during flips. Put that thing side in and do some tic tocs/rainbows/flips or close up slow inverted piros so we can see the nice lines and canopy profile while it's flying. Good looking heli, but It's more interesting to see the side of the heli while it's flying than the boring intro with it just sitting on the table.

Oh and nice bumpers on the skids

High Voltage just works better

Hey man what the hell are you doing flying 3d that close to people in a park. You need to be taken out and flogged. It's people like you that are giving this hobby a bad name and the feds are watching us. Go fly some where it's safe to do that. You are a screwball!!!!!!!!

A little harsh, but the point none the less. All it's going to take is a couple more people getting hurt in parks by RC before we loose it all together. Think before you fly!

OK ..yes I was harsh, but some times you have to hit some one over the head to get them to understand.I don't want to come off as some crusty old man but common sense would tell you not to fly that close to civilians. I just bet that this guy doesen't even have an AMA licence. If he did he would have at least read the safety code and would have known better.
I am waiting for this guy to chime in here and try to defend himself. Bet me I don't get a responce.

I agree, it's not good for the hobby as a whole to fly in a park as such, this is one reason why the FAA is going to be on our backs,,

please pull the clip !!!!

I agree irresponsible and find this type of risk upsetting. I bet the defense will be, "those people are farther away than they appear on camera". These helix can cover a lot of ground in a hurry. Having experienced run away models, I don't ever want to experience it with general public around, especially on community property not sanctioned for r/c.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

paul is a good man and we are all growning pilots helping each other.
How about you help Paul understand that when he hits someone in a park that not only will he have a lawsuit on his hands but give all of us a black eye. Enough of those and we all lose our flying privileges.

Common sense.
