The most dangerous thing he has ever done is hand launching.

Disagree, the days of base jumping of a dodgy cliff are long gone, you can get the same glide ratio as the little canopy's they fly down mountains with nad get so much control.

As safe as it may be, it's still a numbers game and you are playing with odds, which are, fly close enough to cliff's, between trees, under powerlines etc. enough times, and sooner or later a tiny mistake will be made, an unexpected gust, or any number of things - and in a split second you're a bug on a windshield.

quiet possibly. I've done skuba, gliding, fixed line parachuting, and the scariest of all driving my tiny little dragster with waaay to much power. All in my younger days. Thrills I seek these days are more sedate.

I was thinking of taking up trolling and winding up people on the internet. But then I realised whilst I could be smug for 10 minutes of my life the party I chose to hound wouldn't just rise to the bait. It would most likely inspire them to plan and exucute some amazing stunts that would lead on to fame and infamey, to become a first contact spokesman on the subject and most likey lead on to a booming and prosperous business opertunity.


Funny that. I would hate my 'victim' to be shot to fame, stardom and wealth whilst I sunk back into obscurity and my only pleasure left would be sniping out whilst riding on the coat tails of the monster I created.

I will stick with memories of my daredevil youth (did I mention the rockit powered street luge?) and concentrate on building up my FPV fleet, knowledge and experiance and make a few people laugh along the way. Karma

Pretty awesome flying there !!

But I think it`s scary how "beautiful" it seems in the video.
The fact is that it must be damn hard to do, and you need to be highly professional to do this.

I hope videos like this dont inspire kids to go out and try a free Batman jump from a building :P


btw: what have this to do with FPV ? I dont see any planes in the video.
