Yeah, it's ground effects. I tried to land my cobra on my night stand, and there was a lamp above the landing zone, and it was a targeted landing zone at that lol. I was doing good until the ground effects shot my helicopter foward and the it hit the pillows on my bed cause I was trying to turn it to keep in stable lol.

I haven't been over to try it out, but he was certainly using it until his bird quit on him. We had been landing on coffee cans and the like for a few days, and this was the natural evolution of that idea. I didn't realize how challenging it would be to land on a coffee can, but there really is a lot of complex air movement when you get close to them.

Lol Syma's are cheap, but not quite cheap enough to start attempting landings on moving model ships, in real, wet water! Surprised Ahhhhahahaha Unless your last name is Trump!!! Lol Laugh

I guess I should break the news to my buddy, who built the USCGC Snowday (WMEC-50) to go along with his S111G. Note the ventilated helipad, which helps to reduce ground effects on approach. Cool

Found it...

 

Yes, they most certainly are protected...

And, considering that they probably would neither apply for nor recieve permission, I'm guessing they are trying to go around it.

I don't think so. I think that they have to be licensed. You just can't put US Army or US Coast Guard on anything. You look at all kinds of stuff from the USCG and Marine Corps, and it'll say right on it "Officially Licensed." (same for nave, airforce and army. Of couse, if you put a bulldog in a campaign hat w. a globe on it on a flag saying "Devil Dogs!" you get around it)

 

I think Army you have a harder time enforcing, and I think it's only enforced if there's the US on it, but that's it.

 

let me look it up really quick and I'll get back...

Copyright doesn't apply to US armed forces markings. They're most definitely public domain.

don't worry bout it!

 

It's probably just a way for them to get around copyright laws.

 

I'ts not copyright if it's spelled wrong! Just like the whatever-force ones they have. Not air force, but close enough for them. (and the 119g "air succor" one...)
