I did not see the .50 cal either...must be on the other side.

I did see on the nose you have the little indent where the rockets must come out. Looks like you can only fire one at a time - does that require manual reload from the cockpit??

Wow! That thing is beautiful. In the airline world our aircraft are never that clean and shiny after their first month or so on line! I've always wanted to get some helo time, not cheap or easy though, as you are certainly aware. Congrats on the new ride

Yeah I know a few guys who flew King Airs to get enough turbine time to get on one of those.
Amazing machines! Really amazing!
But my god expensive to run and even more expensive to learn how to fly them!
To jump from one I'm looking at a $70 lift ticket to 5k ft.
But it's worth it!

Hey man
Saw your post on the florida section about the airport shoot.
I can't post on the Florida section for some reason that's why I posted here.
I'm interested in being in the shoot. You can text me at 954-319-2666
