  1. Wow, it cracks me up seeing people who know nothing about this hobby calling this fake! With ALL of the videos on You Tube that you can watch showing 3D RC helicopter flying (for you non-believers who don’t know what it is called), there is so much proof that this art really does exist. It’s not fake, it’s not CGI and most importantly, those blades are spinning so fast that they can instantly decapitate you. That is NO exaggeration. That’s why these helicopters can move like dragon flies and humming birds. By no means is this type of flying EASY to do (or safe to try for a novice), so before you think that you are going to rush out and buy one, do a search for Roman Pirozek. These things CAN be dangerous.?
