That heli would've self destructed much sooner if it wasn't tied down with that much weight on the blade.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

Would it not have been much easier to just ASK the guys at the shop if they know any good heli pilots? sad though that the guy behind the counter "demoing" a CP trainer sucked at hovering too anyway....

Grant should have said "give me a month and a half, and 1000 worth or spare parts..."
showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Strapping the heli was a bad idea from the beginning...

Who is to say that the strapping itself didn't make it self destruct?
It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

I can see it for the blade tracking part, but for the second part wasn't entirely inaccurate. Strapping it down definitely doesn't cause it to self destruct. It is obvious that the weight caused a massive off balance issue. If it wasn't strapped down, it would've self destructed much sooner.

It doesn't get much better than Kari. Cute, intelligent, artistic and up for about anything! That heli episode was either part of the original first show or very close to it in the U.S. anyhow.

That must have been an old video. 72MHz transmitter, a Century Hummingbird for the FP trainer, and I'm not sure what they nitro helicopter was. But cool nevertheless. Thanks for sharing.Avant RC

The helis in the traditional canopies are rt to lft A predator 90, predator 70, and a Hawk or Raven

Looks as if the Mechanics he is shown building are the 50 size scale mechanics w/ the 5 Bld head. Nothing like going all in with the 5bh and all. Its hard enough learning this with a stock head.....

That was just silly. They must be running out of myths.

Unless I am missing the boat? Is this a widely held belief?

I was wondering if they were behind plexi glass or bullet proof glass. Either way, you couldn't have gotten me that close to the action. Yeah, it said "don't try this at home", but, everything about that clip promoted stupidity.

I've never heard it, and never would have considered it since this happens all the time (with no consequences).

IMHO, the silliest part is where the announcer says that Grant is going to put the "thottle to 5".

I noticed that too and thought that was pretty funny. They may use the number system to see how far they are on the throttle during a project.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2
