The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has a new helicopter.
Well, it’s new to me anyway. We have so many planes, helicopters and drones in the sky over Vegas that the only time I notice any of them is when they’re directly in front of me or flying low over my house.
When I heard it, I grabbed my camera a took a few shots. I know I used the wrong lens, 18-135mm USM, but my long lens is put away and this was attached to the camera. So there you go.
Besides, kit lens or not, I really like this lens. So unless I’m chasing birds this is what lives on my camera, with my 50mm and my 10-18mm waiting in my bag.
Forget the jet packs, this looks easier to fly and maneuver. Not to mention, it looks like a lot of fun. A helicopter in a suitcase. Everybody ought to own one.
Oops…. According to the Wikipedia the Hoppi-Copter was first flown in 1948 and turned out to be extremely hard to control. –It now lives in the Smithsonian.
