A working helicopter!  Now I am really looking forward to the video of it landing on the ship! Has anyone achieved this before?

Keven of Vancouver, BC landed his helicopter, indoors, on the back of Dumas Enterprise, crew ship.
He and one of the Burchett boys. performed the landing several times during the
Marine Expo in Seattle Washington, 2008. I was practicing to perform the same stunt at the
same show, but was unable to attend.  Kevin beat me to it.  <*< Pictures of the landing were later
published in one of the RC model magazines.  :-)

All I ever got were the couple of practice runs on video, and a miss, due to the slight breeze over the pond.  {:-{

Oh yeah, then there are these heli landings...
The boys narrations are classic...

  Last year I was working in a local hobby store. I took my Graupner Seabex in for display. One of our customers landed one of the small helicopters on its heli deck with no problem.
