I've seen ones before that were much less ATV. Hmmm... Wonder if it's legal to shoot Elk from an ATV while in the air?

My buddy wants to get one, he has a field by him that would be perfect and people use the versions that are not dual engines there, thats the first one of those Ive seen.

Me, I'd prefer a cessna.....

I have a friend that has one and he has about 800 hours in it. He goes to fly in's around the midwest.


I went up with him this summer, was really cool flying around at 30MPH pretty close to the ground! His is 3 wheeler and second seat is almost on top of pilot right in front of engine.

Haven't seen one very close, but we have a bunch similar to that that fly around here. They love to follow us around our reservoir while we are riding. It would be pretty cool to get them to shoot some video of boarding/skiing from that perspective (cheaper then heli shots)

Now that's a thought Cary! Will see if my friend is interested in that!

My brother and his friend have a backpack model that they have flown a few times, they both lost interest in it once they got their pilots license. I wore the backpack once on the ground, it was amazing how much push that thing had. I wanted to use it to clear my leaves in the yard but was afraid of getting pushed face first into a tree or something.

that would be a great idea, some of them top out at 34 mph.

this one stormed the house the other day, he got some good distance before I grabbed the camera.
