Zero Helicopter

Zero Helicopter

I’m not going to lie – I’ve crashed and / or fallen off every form of vehicle I’ve been at the controls of. Literally. You name it, I’ve crashed it. Car, bike, sledge, go-kart, quad bike, mini-moto, skateboard, rollerskates, ice skates and, I’m sure, numerous others that I’m forgetting (potentially as a result of repeated head injuries). I’m yet to take my vehicular mishaps to the skies yet and perhaps, given my track record on land, it would seem like a bad idea to go razzing around with the pigeons and that. I had given up on my dreams of taking to the skies due to being unable to find a vehicle that matched my whimsical (man-child) nature but then I came across this brilliant Zero Helicopter by Hector del Amo and, as they say, it was game on. Needless to say, I lack the patience, time and funds to undergo any formal pilot training so I did the next best thing. Bought a crate of Guinness, watched the entire back catalogue of Airwolf and (in my eyes) I was good to go. After a few shaky minutes during take off, I wasn’t half bad at piloting this little whirly-bird or at least that’s what I thought. The black box on board paints a very different picture, however. Namely, veering straight into an adjacent building, some fairly unintelligible shouting on my part (in which the word “Guinness” featured prominently) and the paramedics complementing my awesome, but now defunct, helicopter.

Looks pretty safe.
