Default Heli dont's

I was flying a 600 12s helicopter for about 2 hours in a very windy condition by myself the last trick for the day was going to be an inverted funnel and I think the wind pushed it into me I'm not really sure what happened anymore whether it was when I flipped it to land or just didn't compensate enough for the wind gusts it shattered the bone in my arm in 10 places is cut my tricep in half it took 30 pins and screws a hundred stitches inside on a hundred Staples outside to put my dumbass back together luckily I am almost completely recovered with minimal side effects I am on a self-imposed one-year suspension from flying I hope you have learned a valuable lesson I had no idea these things could do such damage

I was talking to Andy on Facebook after they took down his post and I explained that if he shared his post here it shouldn't be taken down. I know from talking with him he's almost healed now but he will never be the same.

I too am wishing for you to regain full use of the arm I am glad the worst of the recovery is behind you. Thanks for talking with me Andy

Yes, you definitely have to be aware of whats going on or bad things can happen. I am glad you are recovering and also glad your injuries aren't worse. The worst one I have seen lately was the guy who got smacked across the face. He was lucky to keep conscious and call for help.
