The horror. The horror.
I'm glad no lives were lost.
 
2012-10-30 08:56:45 AM
That was cool.
 
2012-10-30 09:48:25 AM
way cool

I am not really sure why you would risk your life to rescue a remote control plane when you obviously could just buy another one.
 
2012-10-30 09:51:53 AM
Cool as shiat, but I wonder what the FCC is going to think about that guys license status after that stunt.
 
2012-10-30 09:52:39 AM
Gaaaaah! FAA. Suffering tequila deficit. Need to solve that problem.

There was no risk to life involved. That was an easy task for a chopper such as that. I don't think you've ever priced one of these RC planes. They are rather expensive.
 
2012-10-30 09:53:58 AM
I was smiling for the last 4:53

cool as shiat
 
2012-10-30 09:54:24 AM
I would love to be up in the air again.

I think he was referring to the mansion property on which they were residing.
 
2012-10-30 09:56:10 AM
The guy that can afford that house can but a new plane.
 
2012-10-30 09:56:15 AM
And the kid'll have a hella story for his friends at school. With video proof.
 
2012-10-30 09:56:45 AM
buy
 
2012-10-30 09:58:35 AM
That was pretty damn cool, and sure, maybe that dude could have bought another one, but unless it's RTR, it takes time to build one.
 
2012-10-30 10:02:39 AM
One way or the other this guys decision will lead to his wings getting clipped.

/still pretty cool

As if people with that kind of money have ever or will ever build anything. That's what common folk are for.

Did you see the property? When I see a plot of land that big, it usually has crops growing on it. Also, they have a helicopter.
 
2012-10-30 10:11:42 AM
The great amount of gloating diminishes this for me, I'm sorry. A little bit of self-congratulation is in order, but these guys are beating each other off over it, like they saved a baby or something, and that gets tired pretty fast.

FCC?

CliChe Guevara: Gaaaaah! FAA. Suffering tequila deficit. Need to solve that problem.


Gah, missed your catch, sorry. I'm not sure this would be a matter of concern. They seem to know what they're doing, and I think it there was anything questionable about it, one of them would have mentioned that, since they were being free with their speech.
 
2012-10-30 10:26:08 AM
Man, now I want a helicopter. Or a model airplane.

Or how about that dog?

Anything?
 
2012-10-30 10:26:51 AM

CliChe Guevara: Cool as shiat, but I wonder what the FCC is going to think about that guys license status after that stunt.


Ummm, the FCC is the Federal Communications Commision...

The FAA is the Federal Aviation Administraiton. And as long as you have permission to land there is no regulation saying you cant land your neato lil R22 at the local burger king. Now as a pilot you might not want to do that as you are responsible for any damage your aircraft causes (like rocks chipping paint and windows) but no legal issues.

The Federal Communications Commission? Probably nothing at all.
 
2012-10-30 10:28:24 AM
That sounded like a lost episode of the Dukes of Hazard.
 
2012-10-30 10:30:08 AM
By the way, has anyone mentioned to ChiChe Guevara that the FCC doesn't care what these guys do as long as they don't cuss on the radio?

Anyone?
 
2012-10-30 10:30:22 AM
rich people toys. in a few years that little guy will be attending one of the best universities in america, then go to work in his dads corporation for a starting salary that would make you choke.

No, the FAA is responsible for ensuring that food and medication sold to the public is safe for consumption. What you're thinking of is the FDIC.

THAT was farking awesome.

No, the FDIC is to regulate interstate commerce and banking; you're thinking FEMA.

Guy sounds like he's done things like that on a regular basis.

I think the FTC would like a word.

You sure he's not thinking of FINRA? Or I don't know, BBB?

Also. Looked like a small copter. If it's clasified as an Ultralight, are those eve regulated by the FAA?

I was more captivated at him smoking a flying the helicopter

I'm sorry I must have missed him mention was happened the the plane.

Was it in a tree?

I think that's more likely to get him in trouble than grabbing the plane, heh.

No, FEMA is a bone in your leg. You're thinking TIBIA.
 
2012-10-30 11:24:11 AM
That was freakin' awesome . . .but what is wrong with that kid?! A farking helicopter pulls his grandpa's airplane out of a tree and then lands in his front yard and he wants to go lay down with the dog . . .

That's a Robinson R-22. Fully certified by the FCC FDA TIBIA FAA.

I think it would have been funny as hell if after grabbing it they just flew off with it. Leave the guys on the ground with just a giant 'WTF?' as a helicopter swings by and steals their plane.

They would, of course, return it later :)

And the guy on the ground starts flying it around in their cockpit
