So Thump who chooses what I live with, me or you? Yes they are AMA rules and guidelines to protect the hobby so many enjoy. Fine do it but dont go posting shhhhtuff around so the powers that be gain fuel for their fire. The hobby is fighting GOV for our rights as we speak--so you want to be able to fly yet screw the body defending or rights? This is a debate that could go on and on, and I do SEE BOTH SIDES of the story, I just dont understand the sillyness of some people to defend stupidness. It shouldnt be done period and if it is dont make it publicly available. Helis are dangerous enough to only ad more to it. Again I do see both sides, I just disagree with your side as you do mine, as well as my opinion :0)

PS -- when they take it to a public space and do it -- it then becomes a problem Sir. The vid does say MODEL ROCKETS now bottle rockets-- just saying :0)

Have a great Easter

Posting the video here of the rockets on a heli with training gear is like posting a video on a gun enthusiast forum of a baby playing with a BB gun with a "cool video" title.

I think we can expect to see many similar and some worse as R/C becomes more affordable and accessible. Publicised accidents will lead to more regulation and restrictions. This is what we should be concerned with.

We need to be more proactive in bringing people into our clubs and associations and do more to educate people on safe flying. It is in our own best interest to do so.

Rockets on a 450 pretty cool? Maybe I would have agreed, I use to put firecrackers on rubber band free flight airplanes and I thought that was pretty cool, but I was eight years old at the time.

AMA rules are not laws? They deny us of our freedoms? Wrong.

Try expressing your freedom to buzz a control tower with your model, see how many laws you are facing.

Politicians get a hard on when they can pass bills that further control the people. They can take a video like this and show that explosives are used on model aircraft's and endanger the public. Maybe the bill that shuts the flying model hobby down will be called the "Freedom From Private Drone Attack" bill.

To sum it up, is it cool? Most children will think it is.

You all are cracking me up...you act like the GOV doesn't have any access to youtube or they can't google search "Rockets on RC Helicopter" it's out there all they have to do is look for it. Someone wants to post a video on here that's fine with me, it will just turn into another Nitro vs Elect debate

Don't you think the Government would be more worried about giant scale rockets and missiles that are shot off every weekend and reach 10,000 feet or more?

I wouldn't worry to much about a fire cracker on a 100 dollar Heli that is hovering 4 feet off the ground.

This has crossed my mind but never did it. If you take a look at the progression in rc as far as we now have gps,telemtry basically its very possible for anyone to make a uav now a days. If you stand outside the box and look at that stuff like this is just the beginning. But as far as the vid its stupid fun. I stand 50/50

Mike is there a reason your here now and not on the "other" site? No harm meant

Not a big deal, I've done it with my 450 might even have video of it most of the people that do this don't know or care about AMA, and probable never will. Unless the government bans the sale of radio controlled models(if there still on the shelves at stores and hobby shops, people will buy them....and they might possibly try stupid things with them

Just my opinion...err...2cents
