Default A word of warning

Hey guys, just spotted this video on youtube and thought I would bring it here to discuss.
When you are involved in an accident or trauma of some kind, your body can go into shock and you just don't make the right decisions.
If you are involved in any helicopter related accident, especially one as serious, life threatening and disfiguring as this one I urge you to get someone else to drive you to the hospital.
The inability of the brain for rational thought in this instance is quite large and could cause you to drive in an unsafe manner; Speeding, driving erratically and dangerously, failing to indicate and not focusing on the road because you are too busy filming your lacerated hand.
Cheers.

Why is the tach at zero at around 1:00 to 1:15 and his speedometer is really high? Good thing no one called him on his way to the hospital. Driving, the camera, the phone, the narration.

I hardly feel that keeping one's comments to oneself is beneficial in this scenario.
My advice still stands, if you aren't in a fit state of mind, don't drive yourself to the hospital; You went from being a danger to just yourself to being a danger to all other road users and that lack of respect for them is pretty poor form.

Dan,
You can't do a 1/4 of what I can,not even close.Tail blew out,no control.I made a stupid mistake but by the way you post,I wouldn't expect you to understand that..

Inverse,
This isn't the first time you trolled my video's and won't be the last..Kinda like the smart mouth clone shot's you give us in the Chaos section https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=348769 ..All your doing is stirring garbage up ..Worry about yourself..If I wasn't able to drive,I wouldn't ..Sorry you couldn't see but I wasn't going much faster than other car's,just enough to get around them.You make it sound like I was flying past them .

With all due respect Lon, you weren't able to drive properly from what I saw.
Speeding, no indicating and operating a handheld device all at the same time doesn't look too in control to me (much like part 1 of this video to be honest).
If you were bleeding out I might have seen the reason for it, but you barely were bleeding, let alone in danger enough to warrant such erratic driving.
I suggest if you think I'm "stirring stuff up" that you focus more on your reactions than my attempts to encourage good debate.

Lon,if you read my first post, this isn't intended as a troll, I was merely stating that driving in that manner was not acceptable and if you aren't capable of driving due to whatever circumstances then you shouldn't.
I'm sorry that you are taking this so personally but it's not meant as such, merely just to point out to others what shouldn't be done.

LMAO,sorry I was moving about 7 MPH faster than other car's LOL.Camcorder has a adjustable screen so I was looking at the road.Do different than having a GPS in the window,do you understand that?Do you man up like you are on the internet and stop every car driving down the road with a GPS in the front window?Your right,I couldn't control the heli because it had NO TAIL CONTROL.

Yeah, that tends to happen when you fly them backwards into the ground.

Didn't say you couldn't fly so try reading what's said.I said you can't do 1/4 of what I do and you can't.You wouldn't know what "making a mistake" is because you fly 50+ ft in the air.No disrespect,just saying you don't understand ..Once you learn more and get close to the deck,you'll understand then..

Your tone is rather confrontational don't you think?
You crashed and then crashed into yourself.
