Gusty winds

Recommended Posts

What an egit!!! Why do people post this stuff on Youtube... to even consider flying in such winds is bad enough.... Not even wearing a helmet....

Hi Gordon

I think its good that people put stuff like this on youtube, it shows newbies why we dont do it.

I think there's some context missing here folks.

If one was motivated beyond the need for a simple flight fix, by something let's say monetary in reward, that might challenge local laws but be quite reasonable in Germany (guessing, no idea). Perhaps it may even serve as a visual reason why it is not legal for so many countries to obtain compensation for the view their sport offers them.

I'm not rambling really, I just ran the url through the babel filter:

It is my humble assumption that this pilot had a job to do and wanted to get paid.

So it could also be viewed from a client's perspective as having hired the right guy given his determination.

I see no other reasonable motivation for a flight after dragging a turtle for that distance.

Also, nice prop clearance if this wasn't edited like it seems to be.
