There seems to be a couple reasons the Robinsons are involved in a lot of accidents and they're all related to price. 1. They're about the lowest-priced helicopter available, so they don't have the systems and redundancy of more expensive helis. 2. Because of the price, they're attractive to new pilots with fewer hours and experience. And 3. They're ugly because they're cheap and god makes them fall out of the sky sometimes.

I hope this helps.

Thousand of parts reluctantly flying in close proximity to each other.

My guess would be a recreational pilot.

Did you give the pilot a friendly gesture as he flew by you?

This happened to me and our hunting partners a few years back on some weyco land in the Winston unit... very odd.

Is that three or four points?
3. They're ugly.
4. Sometimes God casts them onto the ground.

3. Being ugly is why he makes them fall out of the sky.

Looks about right but the fuselage was covering the frame completely.  No frame showing on the rear. I held my hands up in disbelief like really man. I fought alot of forest fire when I was young and this dude was really hanging it out there cut bu the rock bluff maybe 200 ft out in a steep bank. I hope hes not back this weekend

I used to enjoy it when the A-6s would fly low through the mountains. But they didn't stick around. A couple of big swooshes and they were gone.
