No thanks...I'm sure I'd be the first to knock the helicopter off with a low bridge. ;D

It's all very cute until you fire up that helicopter in the middle of an RV park. Just guessing here, but if they don't allow drones they're really not going to like that Robinson ripping the awning off your neighbors' rigs and blowing over their chairs

At 3.5 million dollars, if you can afford the RV, you might be able to afford your own campground.

Or Brad Paisley's tour coach. It is patterned after a 1958 Corvette, worth 1.7 mil.  Couldn't fine a picture of it, but they had a blurb about it in last weeks Parade magazine

Not me.  I am afraid of those things.  Too many moving parts.  Went down eight times in two tours of Viet Nam.

Good thing I was just a kids back then.

But it might fit if I could do something with the rotor blades, LOL

But I would upgrade the R22 to an MD500 or better.

The helecopter retracts into the rig while moving. There's no low height problems.
Last I heard this rig was not for sale. Rather, a demo to showcase their state-of-the-art capabilities.

I'd rather have an ICON A5 as a toad. Fixed wing amphibious is much more appealing to me.

I've got a lot of hours in an R22, they're pretty twitchy to land on top of a skinny motorhome. I'd agree with RedandSilver, an MD500 or a NOTAR would be cooler.

I'd have to try to get my medical back and dust off my old Rotorcraft license.  Too old for that now.  Guess I'll have to pass.

We had an S-61 parked on the ramp when our first R-22 arrived. A female employee took one look and remarked " Oh look, the 61 just had a baby".  ;D I once trailered a Bell 47 from Prince George British Columbia to an FBO near Minneapolis, the new owner was sick of dealing with traffic on the commute. Must be nice to have that kind of money.

I'm sure you know that if you've had a valid class 3 medical in the last ten years, you're good to go again as of May 1st.
