    Congrats Herron. Actually anyone that get in a helicopter and hangs out to drop used items from 300 to 1000 feet should be congratulated or insane. I’m glad you have fun doing it. You shouldn’t push objects away, I notice they went further. Try just dropping straight down next time. Of course if it was even a little windy or a breeze can make a difference.

    Why yes...I actually have played darts from a helicopter...lol. While in the Military, part of my "job" was to drop sensors, shaped like very large lawn darts, out of the door or ramp from various helicopters on a weekly basis... from what I recall, conditions allowing, we would generally fly 80 knots at 500 ft so our aiming point was consistent. We would drop 3 to 5 sensors in a "string" with the preferred impact sites marked on a map and a team member working as a "plotter" to record actual impact point so we could adjust the distance figure in our computations.....this was all Pre-GPS

      ​@Kevin Johnson ...though we did do some drop training while at sea just to maintain our flight hours, the sensors "We" dropped were seismic sensors....No Subs involved, just enemy troops, trucks and tanks. When we weren't deploying them by air, we would sneak in and place them by hand...other designs of course (seismic, infrared, magnetic, audio)

    The duck quack when the objects missed was hysterical. I guess it's tougher than it looks to hit a spot from a chopper. Seems like the way to go would be to hover over the target and just release rather than hoiking it out the door. That parabolic fall path is hard to judge.

  • Wayne Coulter
    Wayne Coulter 3 months ago

    I think most of the problem was a mix of the helo being too far off to one side of the target area... and items were being THROWN from the helo, imparting lateral velocity which was then compounded by wind resistance. Something dropped from directly above the target area and DROPPED instead of thrown would have stood a much better chance of at least landing in the target area.

    jpawhees 3 months ago

    Maybe using a line with a weight on tied to the end would provide more accurate hits since it can give the helicopter pilot a way to see how close to the targets he is. Lower the line from the copter when at the target area to help prevent it from swinging. Let the weight hit the ground then raise it back up a bit would also help keep it from swinging.

    Try ... Mortar Cannons ... (something like it) to aim on to targets. Dropping with a heli seems to create too much wind interference ... and the tower is a lot of climbing..
    Mortars ... would be easier. Maybe other things like an air piston.. Air cannon.. Trebuchet ? ...
    The target attempts would be fun to see a hit.... but so would the splatter of random objects onto ground.

      Yeh was a bummer. We only had a limited time with the chopper so we tried to pump out the drops to hit as much as possible. Wish we’d hit more but maybe we just got really lucky at the dam last time 🤷🏻‍♂️ could be fun to play it with a slightly diff format at the tower, maybe if an item gets hit it’s points are gone? 😬

  • Robert Keller
    Robert Keller 3 months ago

    just a thought, instead of increasing height, should have done low "bombing runs" to throw the items. The wind seemed to play a pretty big factor as far as accuracy was concerned. Simply increase speed for the "fly by" drops to increase difficulty.
