I have my Helicycle all pre-flighted in the dark....:p, actually it was still in my lit hanger but dark outside. The picture shows the chopper is fueled and outside trembling waiting for me to take it to its new destination this morning. A potential curved stairway client is what the trip is about. He actually saw my helicopter on my website and requested that I fly in and land at his property today. No problem, I can arrange that! The GPS is loaded with the destination, and it is less than an hour away if I maintain 100 mph, so this should be a fun flight. Pictures enroute to follow later today.

Interesting day. I had a beautiful flight at 100 plus cruise.....my GPS took me exactly to his farm setting....I did a high recon...a low recon, saw some wires, stayed away from them, saw two poles standing up that had no wire between them, but I demanded to myself that there was one anyway. So, I came in on a steep approach over a non wire, and then landed next to his evergreens. His home is just off to one side of these pictures.

We went into his home and discussed his stairway he wants me to build. It is rather involved and thats the kind I like. Next he took me out to eat, then brought me back to the farm where he took a video of my startup and departure. I did about a 115 mph pass over him them headed on my course line in my GPS. What a time machine.....It would have taken me twice as long to have driven this. I was back before noon.

I snapped some pictures of some windmills going up all over. These things are over 450 ft. tall.....the pictures dont do them justice. I am going to mount my camera on my skid and take some videos tomorrow from hovering around these near the ground....to hovering as close as I can near the top of the generator.

You are one lucky dude Stan. Talented, hardworking and fun loving.
But flying your chopper in to quote on a job and having the prospective client buying you a feed is top shelf mate! Trick machine.
