Default Freya 90 in living room

We all know the raptor video in the living room.

I came across this one of a guy waking up his friend by hovering a Freya in the living room next to him from 2016. I'm not sure which is worse.

:O! Guy laying on the sofa. Another guy walking about. One small thing going wrong can so quickly turn into a life threatening situation with this one!

Like the oil stain blown on the carpet.

I bet the house is in foreclosure, so they figured what the hell, lets put lives in danger while we're at it.

That was really horrifying for me to watch, the blatant dis-respect for the machine's ability to kill someone is astounding.

I was thinking the same thing but the guy on the couch that could get killed shouldn't be considered the Darwin Award winner.

How does anyone get to that skill level of hovering without knowing how dangerous a heli can be. What a fricking idiot!!!

Intelligence and skill are not related.

It's just a toy helicopter blowing fresh spring clouds into the atmosphere!

What could possibly go wrong!?

I had some friends over and showed a girl a blade from a 700. I pointed to the heli and said that can easily kill you. She was blown away.. almost in disbelief. I was like imagine if I hit you with this thing.. now imagine it hitting you at like 300-400mph and like 67 times a second until it stops. Yeah it can slice you to pieces! (Rough estimate on 700 at 2k rpm ).

When people talk helis I always point out that it is no joke and not a toy.

If I was the guy on the couch I would knock the pilots teeth out with his own helicopter.
Highly unlikely I would be the guy on the couch as idiots tend to run in packs.

In the privacy of your own home...

It shows some good skills especially when the model was pirouetting stationary.

This guys not quite as proficient at keeping a stationary hover.

Haha, yeah that's the video most of us have seen. After it being referenced as one of the dumbest things you can do with an RC heli, I didn't think anyone else would do it.

I will say that the guy had a really nice stable hover.
