    That's great, but there's something about the unlimited wind of a turbine that makes helicopter flying a more positive experience.

    He sure had some very fine control over that bird... obviously NOT his first rodeo. I thought he was coming in rather quick on the return approach, but his finesse was exceptional. Is he flying w/o instruments, or does he have some between his feet?

    That is very cool, I sure want one.

    He does appear to be looking down at his feet, but I think that he is sitting on his most important instruments!!!

    This looks to be the same one. A bit better view of the machine. There are a few instruments down between the pedals. Pretty cool little machine.
