Landing a FPV RC Helicopter on a Train - and It Crashed - Big Time!

This guy uses his FPV system to land a very expensive helicopter (a Thunder Tiger Mini Titan E325, probably about $1200.00 USD) on a MOVING train. Awesome bit of flying, especially considering how fast the train is moving and all the wind rush around the train. He would have actually landed on the moving train's roof except for ... look out ... crash!

As the author of this video proudly states 'The heli was proud to die at this amazing stunt........' This is a great example of FPV (First Person View) flying. FPV is a system where a camera is fitted to the remote control helicopter model along with a device that transmits real time video back to the pilot via a special set of viewing goggles. In other words, it feels like you're in the cockpit of the RC helicopter whilst you're flying it.
