Flying too low

Here we go! Our first Thursday update! Weehee!

Between our airport and the helicopter training area we use is a skeet shooting range. I always tell my pilots to stay away from it as much as they can or fly over so you put yourself behind the shooter. Then I started thinking about what they would do if you buzzed them or flew really low…

    dont know if I’ve told this story or not in the forum. Heard about one bloke flying his R/C helicopter in a farmer’s field just flying away happily and decided to try his hovering skills by trying to land on a fence post. He got there and hovered for a few seconds next thing is a lound bang and the helicopter disapears in a cloud of flying parts. Then the farmer comes out of the bushes reloading a double barrel shotgun and says “Thanks best target practice I’ve had for years!”

    Actually knew someone who this happened to…except the clay pigeon didn’t go in front of their plane, it went through the front passenger’s window!
