Dear hunting with a helicopter.

Nosing on youtube at helicopter vids whiling away my lunch hour, I thought this was awesome so thought I would share:

I think it is from the film The Last Great Adventure which is all about the deer hunting in New Zealand.

Wow, looks like hard work for the machines and the crews. I bet they never got bored doing that sort of work.

Absolutely crazy! I'd love to do SOME of the flying but some of it seems just a touch on the wreckless side for catching a deer... fair enough if you were in a warzone or something but for deer?

Its a classic in more ways than one but this old army film is worth watching.

I am not knocking the R product, seeing as 90% of people on this forum fly them I was merely giving advice, before somoene tries to copy the style of flying. Remember there is always someone out there who will try something without thinking about it.
Probably count on 2 hands and 2 feet the number of people who have a 206 rating and even fewer with a 204 or 212 rating on this site

Hughes500 - OK, just seem to remember you having a dislike of them Wink

Fair point about types - would think there probably even less with Huey or Apache ratings Smile
