If you have a laser on your pistol, this is NOT the way to test it.
Cockpit View of Helicopter Crash in Brazil
This happened 2 years ago (July 4th 2013) but just now the video was released. It happened in Corumba de Goias, a small city in the rural area of Brazil. The pilot did a bad approach and tried to swoop right after touching the ground, but the helicopter didn't have enough power to take off and it crashed 900 feet ahead. Nobody was injured.
