VIDEO: crash is at the end.

We killed 28 hogs and 6 coyotes. Sorry for the upload quality. It was filmed in HD.
Coolest fucking thing I have ever done. Pilot was a former army pilot and very skilled.
My friends were lucky to walk away alive.

Here is the hunting action. Fixed with no banner:
Failed To Load Title


Just the crash for all the whiners. No banner, paid the $40 .

I know. But I am cheap as fuck and didn't want to pay.

Did he have to pay extra for that?

Really good flying skills. Not much time to react that close to ground.
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 7:44:57 PM EST
Dayum!  

Buy that pilot a beer.

I mean a brewery.
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 7:44:59 PM EST
They can send the vid to http://www.kathrynsreport.com/2021/01/robinson-r44-ii-n322sh-accident.html?m=1

Once they pilot gives the OK, of course.

Very lucky.

I assume the boom came off with the impact, not self-destructed in flight, because he retained directional control.

With my crummy phone sound, damn near sounded like it threw a frigging rod.

Been in a couple of helicopter crashes. I’ll pass.

Ok, that is amazingly weird.  I know that airport, town and pilot.

That pilot's reaction time gets me hard.  Could have been incredibly worse....

A machine that beats the air around it into submission? Ten thousand parts all moving in opposition to one another?

Worst auto I've seen since flight school.  No wonder he couldn't get a job flying anything other than a Robinson!

Engine failure, autorotation landing, main rotor clipped the tail off on impact?

Other then the tail being clipped off that wasn't a bad deadstick. Everybody walked away.

He was trying to avoid a power line and had to change his plan at the last second.  Everyone walked away unhurt so I think he did OK.
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 7:52:26 PM EST
Any crash you can walk away from...
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 7:52:45 PM EST
That looked fun as fuck.  I'm jealous as hell.  Except for the crash part.  You can keep that.

Robinson Heli I assume????  It's always a Robinson.

Yeah...seeing the droop on the blades, it made itself a bobcat on impact.

I went to basic, WOCS, and flight school in OH58Ds with Jacey.

Not much time to react in a Robbie. Captain did pretty well, all pax survived uninjured, and he kept the aircraft upright. 407 pilot here.

Only a little over 200 hrs on the airframe.  FAA (or is it NTSB?) has been out.  No obvious cause for the engine failure at this point.

Lol. Clicked on this expecting a balled up Robinson.

Thats a pretty common ending with Robinsons.

Pilot said he only had 200 hours on it and he just got it.
Yeah they have a bad reputation they earned the hard way.
Glad I didn't know it beforehand!

That pilot did a damn good job on the low level auto.

58D pilot. No big deal.
