    You'll need to watch my latest effort to see it though.... Taken today at a local beach.. It is winter here, so not a lot of people about. Incidentally, young Harry is my Grandson.

    First: That is not winter. Shorts and a hoody means fall or spring :)

    Second, there is no way I will try and land on my car, too far for the H to fall when something goes wrong due to the metal messing with the sensors but that was pretty cool!

    Nevertheless, it's winter in Australia, but there are crazies around in shorts.... Happens everywhere I guess!
    And, technically, I didn't land on my car... I landed on my new landing pad, which was on my car!

    As a South African expat living in the states I know what "winter" means in that part of the world and I sure miss that.

    I spent a few years as a child in Capetown, where were you?

    OMG Chris....
    The ending is too funny..
    And hell yes, I have landed a few times on my van roof.
    My first pad was only 16" the H barely fit on it. Made a bigger 24" one, a bit more forgiving to land on.

    Grew up in the Orange Free State where there are no oranges, nothing is free and it is in a hell of a state :)
    Lived and worked in Johannesburg before moving to the USA

    Perhaps I should come clean... Harry landing that H was pure Hollywood... That was editing and shooting extra footage... Looked good though?
