Oh man, you really are lucky to still be alive after that. I'm glad you're recovering from it, though!

That is definitely a stark reminder of how damaging these things can be.

Are you saying that the person in the pic isn't you? Or are you saying "It can't happen to me?"

That was terrible damage. he is very lucky to be alive. the lasdt yong man we heard about having been hit in the head is no longer with us.

I just wish some pilots would not fly so close to themselves.

Please be safe at all times and don't fly alone!!

Not to be a ghoul, but there are photos of Roman's accident (the aftermath with him deceased). They are hideous, but in some way, I think that they should be viewed. Especially by those who think "It'll never happen to me". Roman was a very experienced pilot, although he was known for some rather dicey maneuvers.

The point is that these helicopters aren't your friend, they don't care and they WILL KILL YOU if you don't pay attention.

The young man in these photos is beyond lucky.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fly safely.

It can happen to anyone. Your heli or someone else's.

No matter how well you think you maintain your heli.

Remember. All of this stuff is made in China.....

....and no, it's not me in the photo's.

I have been witness to a couple of very close calls.

My high school woodshop teacher (John Dally) used to begin every semester with the most gory films of shop accidents. We used to have to get a permission slip from home to watch them. No slip, no watch, no shop. That's how it was. I used to think it was too much but you know what? I still remember them and the shop safety lectures that went with them.

For me, these posts are in that vein. I really hate them - but when I go to the field tomorrow, those very unpleasant images will stick with me. I hate that it has to be this way but seeing images of results of carelessness, inattentiveness, or just bad luck helps me remember that these are flying lawn mowers and that bad things can and do happen to people.

Thanks for sharing - sort of.

Bill

PS: John if you're here, thanks for the lectures and looking back, I don't know how you slept at night knowing 25 bullet proof punks like me spent my time in your class using a table saw, shaper, planner, jointer, drill press, etc. 5 periods a day. They owed you a retirement after 5 years.
"Well, nothing bad can happen now."
