Instead of saving for my kids’ college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

    Are you working on getting your pilot license or was this just a bucket list thing? If you are getting your license, I hope you are getting some good footage of the progress. As a fixed wing pilot, I always enjoy seeing other people learning to fly.?

    im a kid, who never wants to crash myself, but i can solve a rubics cube?

  • Daniel Gable:

    A good helicopter simulation can be found in the flight simulator X-Plane. I tend to flip the helicopter over on the side during take off and landing. Straight and level flight is easy by comparison.?

  • JeepAdventures:

    You're at Clearwater airport! Welcome to Florida! I hope you enjoyed flying over the beach and what not?

  • delcastillo1000:

    so i wonder if my theory is correct, if a fighter jet is moving at 1400 m/h then shoots a bullet that is moving 1800 m/h would the total speed of the bullet be add up to 3200 m/h??

  • Marc Hershey:

    I've never flown a real helicopter, but I do have a Blade 700x. It's something that is VERY difficult to get used to, but I'm starting to wonder, what is harder? Having complete view of the helicopter, without motion senses, or having only the front directional view of the copter, but gaining motion senses. I don't call my self a pro with RC Helicopters, but I've been flying them for 7-8 (maybe even 9) years, so I feel very comfortable. I would love to get the chance to fly a real one some day!?

  • pinpoint45:
