Must have an emergency release button under his thumb on both the collective and cyclic. I would even add a voice command release when I say "OH SHET !!"

Im surprized these helis can fly considering the shear amount of additional weight required to lift the pilots gonads...

That last vid is incredible. Like a game of "Go Fish", drag the line over, hook it on the crossbar, re-hook and finally got the line under the cross bar.

Wow that last video is amazing and nuts at the same time. So many things could go wrong. All of those pilots are a special breed for sure.

Seems like there should be a better and safer way to hang power lines nowadays though.

Never the less, pretty awesome to watch. Thanks for the videos gents

It looks about right to me. Video quality probably isn't the best and we're probably missing the minute details but stability wise, it looks about right for a helicopter pulling thousands of pounds of cable under a loaded rotor head.

But, these days, anything can look legit with editing software.

....uhmm uhmmm...... the pilot is not "Nutz"...

sorry guys I cant help myself- I needed to Chime in....since I have partaken in this type of flying.

the pilot is a "long line pilot"... one who specializes in Utility Lift Vertical Reference Precision Long line operations

The company I used to fly for - this is ALL we did, PJ Helicopters.

we didnt fly at night, we didnt fly IFR, --- But they were Long Line GODS!

And sooooooooooooo MANY more things are done with helicopters that most people just don't know about. I was flying as a copilot in their Blackhawks- setting poles, cage tops, ripping out old towers (8,000lbs)and of course fire fighting dropping water 780 gallons (BAMBI Max 780 variable fill).

I was also signed off part135 in the 206 and L3...but I mostly spent my time doing doors off weed recons with cops.

I never did learn how to long line or fly true vertical refrence, I left the company early this year and moved on to flying Helicopter EMS.... I would have started long line training this year...maybe....They liked me in the blackhawk and honestly it WAS a good gig.

doing re-conducter jobs were very common and how we spent our OFF season from fire...

Usually the Hawk would be there for the Heavy stuff (sometimes we would take the Huey or 214 for Medium jobs) and one of our long rangers or MD520's or 530s for the light stuff like Arms or Bells...

Plus the lights as we call them would be doing all of the "short Haul" flying 2 guys at a time on a 60' line and landing them on the towers that we were going to be working on.

A good Long Line pilot is a VERY special Breed of pilot indeed....but it is something that is Taught and CAN be learned- but its like learning to fly all over again.

For a challenge, rig up a releasable cable point on the bottom of your r/c heli, and practice flying figure 8s with a (appropriately sized) jug of water on a cable. I found you have to be veeeerrrrrrry smooth on all control inputs!

I think there have been experiments in the past demonstrating model helicopters lifting or pulling. Because I've got nothing better to do I've attached the two most annoying examples I could find.

I find myself wondering if Gaui wouldn't like to call a do-over on these.

Its me or did the people in those videos unnecessarily risk their safety for nothing?

It's one thing when you are pulling cables with a real helicopter to make a living, but what was the point of pulling a car or lifting a woman with a model helicopter?

No one in any of those videos were wearing any kind of safety equipment what so ever if something went wrong and all I could see was rotor head leaving and flying straight into camera men or a woman falling and breaking something because the rope snapped or she lost her grip. Even worse....some failure that cause the heli or parts to fly at the lady and causing serious injury.

To add insult to injury...they are all horrible actors.
