Safety Issue / Do not view if squemish

We were sent a safety video on rc helicopters that is shocking. Please learn from it. It is on our facebook page under rctvlive. There is also a warning there.

What type of heli was that?
Serves as a good reminder that spinning blades are exactly that, BLADES!
Blades cut, skin or air, it doesn't matter, it just takes a little more power to cut flesh......

Was a .40 powered heli.......but a larger electric spinning high RPM's is capable of the same thing.

The equivelant of this has had to have happened to me about 20 times in the sim already
Deep cut though, I certainly wouldnt be that calm.

Calm? I would say shock...

Shock, you can't feel anything when you are in shock, got an airplane blade to the nose yesterday, just makes the area numb, and slows your mind down a bit, the key is not to panic, panic and you are a little bit screwed because you stop thinking logically.
