Beer vs. the helicopter

….so I’m shooting these aerials in Austin last week and the helicopter pilot I’m using seems to be unusually gifted. Almost telepathically, I see the image in my mind and Ray Asgar sees it a second later, positioning the aircraft perfectly. Ray’s machine is truly an extension of his body…but only after completing the flight do I comprehend the depth of Ray’s powers.

He apparently holds the record for opening beer bottles with his helicopter. This is accomplished by taping a bottle opener to the helicopter strut and then “flying” the opener into position to pop the cap. See it here:

I can’t think of anything to top this but Ray says he plans to undo a bra with his helicopter next. Stay tuned.
