Nice Mon!

When you hesitate just prior to entering the car and then proceed it reminds me of a wasp approacing its nest. Pause just long enough to get the accuracy and then move in.

What haven't you flown that thing through??

Uhmm ? Inside the Space Shuttle ?


I added a little spice on this by entering through the left rear window and then maneuvering the heli between the front seat headrest at the same time avoiding the roof and then proceeded through the front passenger side window.

Who could've ever dreamed of doing this. I remember the days where the concept of flying a helicopter in a large living room came around the corner..

Nice one EQMOD. Which one is this though? You have modded more than one PicooZ, right?

LOL. Even a slight draft created by a moving car would blow this small heli away

WOW! Looks like a nice car. I think I see quality there.
Try this, you set in the rear passenger seat and fly,
someone else sits behind driver and run video cam,
put a pretty girl with great legs in a mini skirt in front passenger seat,
4th person drive the nice car 120 MPH while you fly.
The video cam can "document" the first 120 MPH PicooZ.
The pretty girl is just for eye candy, but it never hurts to have a pretty girl around.
Good Luck

no idea of the speed actually. However i noticed one interesting flight characteristic; Heli is completely oblivious on the van's state (accelerating/deaccelerating) - Meaning no additional cyclic input is needed on the heli if the van is accelearating or goes to a complete stop.

A parakeet in an F16 can exceed Mach 2. Until you roll the windows down.
