Jet powered RC Helicopter Movie

I was at the LHS and this guy showed up with this jet powered Heli-e
We talked him in to demoing it in the hobby shop parking lot. I just happened to have my nikon 3700 camera in the van. I had to resize the video from 100 MB down to Under 10 Mb to post here. Enjoy

Oh my God. And it sounded just like a full scale turbine Heli, too! The sound was the most impressive part hands down.
