THIS IS NOT AN AIR-TO-AIR SHOT

Question: from where was it taken - and where are the pilots? Not so easy one? :-)

hah hah hah from the picture definitely an option. Never thought about it but it's true. But nope, no steel structures in Glenfinnan and no pilots "in the air"

CELEBRATING 3,000,000 VIEWS!

Our nice little YouTube channel has crossed the 3 million views mark recently and we thought that was a nice number! Especially because we have much fewer videos online than other channels of comparable size - meaning on average our videos score rather well.

Although our YT channel has been created a long time ago, we weren't active there until 3 years ago. In this time we have grown to 7,500 subscribers and 3 million views (i.e. several thousand per day). And even better, our watch time currently counts 6 days per day: in other words, 6 full 24h-days of HeliGraphix videos are continuously watched every single calendar day. That's really good, especially in relation to the rather small number of videos which produce this watch time.

Overall we're still a small channel, and for the bigger guys out there the 3 million may mean nothing. But as for us, we're proud of our little YouTube home and the endless amount of hours we invested and still invest into turning our fun actions and videos into a reality. Quite some time ago someone commented: '*HeliGraphix is that one secret favorite among all R/C aircraft channels*' (don't know the exact wording anymore).

That was real nice and we believe it is still true. HeliGraphix is a small but highly specialized channel. It's really cool it is out there and continues to grow, day by day. And most important and best of all is: we've got the BEST community in the world! It's a pleasure to meet and hear back from you guys time and again. Please stay with us, more cool stuff to come!

And awww!!! Not yet a subscriber? WHAAAAT, NOOOO??? Then click here now, still free!

THE STRANGEST INVERTED HOVER?

Just came across this nice picture and thought 'why not share it'. It has been sitting on the hard drive for quite a while. It's from a former stunt which never made it through the cut. It shows a pretty unusual inverted hover - just before the heli went up in flames. Apart from the flames it wasn't too spectacular but real good fun :-)

Yes it's worse than the factual damage, almost impossible to get rid of. We had other cases before that (one was at the end of the Sledding video in the Swiss Alps, there you see it catch fire in flight). Smell was so bad the heli could not be transported inside the car. Even after thorough cleaning it came back for a long long time.

QUESTION: HOW DID THE LANDING WORK?

Apparently the latest helicopter/parasailing action video left one big question unanswered: how did the landing work? And maybe also: why don't we see touch-down in the video?

Well, the landing was a simple autorotation onto a closed strip of beach. There was a hotel construction site of a few hundred meters, perfect for our purposes. Heli touched down as usual, then tipped over in the soft sand but no damage.
For some reason it took the boat longer than planned to go back to the beach after its final turn. So for the landing we ended up further north than we'd thought we would. That's the reason why the landing camera didn't catch the touch down; they unfortunately were about 10 seconds too late. But you can see in the end of the video that the heli didn't even have a scratch.

Any more questions? Just ask! :-)

You know, that's not even a bad idea. We're thinking about a remake of the motorcycle stunt, but might as well expand it. If only we all had more time!

OK, we are Google plus here and it's good that way!

But here's a video we couldn't find anywhere else and which is simply too cool not to share. So you may want to check it out nonetheless

THAT ONE STUNT WHICH SEEMED TO BE SIMPLE ...

... and wasn't! Could YOU spot the helicopter waiting on the beach? Similar to our famous Philippines stunt (piloting a heli from inside a passing airplane, it's in this channel) we opted for a flying start and landing, simply because it was safer and because you cannot initialize a heli on a boat.

But this was just one factor of many. Think about advanced logistics, weather and sun dependence. And where do you land? Fortunately, there was a closed part of the beach due to a hotel construction site, so this was the perfect place for an autorotation landing.

What is it like to dangle from a paragliding chute, can you move enough to see and control the heli? What about emergency plans? Clear, you won't hurt anyone when flying over water. But losing a good heli with some cool gear on board certainly isn't an option.

So when delving into the detail this is in fact a pretty complex stunt. Hope you like it, too. Don't forget to say hi in the comments and to leave us a 'thumbs up'!

See ya! Your friends at
