Guy on a skateboard holds a 600 size helicopter to drive forward! Ultimately this is one of our coolest but at the same time most dangerous stunts. NEVER REPEAT THIS EXPERIMENT! Instead, have fun watching us do it for you!

Heli is a freakware/Align T-Rex 600, battery-powered. We did several tests and found that the most critical things are the start (heli easily pulling you off the board meaning you have to "wiggle" to get things moving) and especially the stop. The pilot will stop the engine by switching to autorotation mode (= pitch remains constant while motor is off). It could be FATAL to just pull back the throttle/pitch lever like in a flight mode because then the heli stops instantly and the guy on the skateboard might just fall into the disk. BTW, we cleaned the street from all small stones before the experiment!

Max. speed we reached during different takes was a bit over 25 km/h (15 mph). Faster would have been possible but that was the limit for us because the guy on the board could also run that fast in case he had to jump off (and he did have to quite a few times). When starting slowly and after some testing this action is well-controllable. We are not talking about theories here but PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE! We appreciate any concerns but ultimately knew it could be done without injury or damage. If you refuse to do believe that - not a problem on our end. But please be fair enough to acknowledge we've been doing many (!) such stunts for 10+ years without a single accident. There's a reason for that. So please be cool and enjoy the vid for what it is: A cool experiment you won't see anywhere else.
