      Nice photo, but low speed is better for propellers.

      Awesome photo! I think that the power of the helicopter is even more evident when the capture looks static (ie without showing the props movement), it looks like would be impossible for that bird to stay in the air!

      That humvee has one serious motor. I've never seen a jeep tow a helicopter before.

      I agree low speed is usually better for propellers, but in this instance I think the frozen blades add the the photo. Great picture!
