    That's pretty cool. Pretty impressive pilot work, too.

    11 24" circular blades spinning at 5,800 RPM powered by a 45 HP engine. 13 blades in optimal flying conditions.

    This is going into my crazy list.

    Looks like a pretty low stress job.

    But who's going to pick up the fallen branches?

    D'oh! Turners, of course!

    Is that the "Turners" of TV and AOL fame?

    No real risk of electric shock, since the copter's not grounded. Probably make an impressive ball of fire if you cut through the lines, though.

    One of those was in a James Bond movie. I thought it was just a movie stunt thing. Then several years ago I saw one clearing a right of way near my farm. Ohmigosh! What a scary thing that is.

    Rogers got a good point about picking up the debris. I guess crews keep the undergrowth clear beneath the power lines do that from time to time. If not i can see it being good tinder for a fire when it collects after frequent cuts.

    Still an incredible pilot to fly something like that and concentrate doing it for so long.
    cheers
