It’s all fun and games until someone gets the top of his head lopped off.

So, he joined the rotary club?

I know the joke is in bad taste and I pray the victim knew God and RIP but the Twilight Zone movie jokes came to mind.

I’m not buying it. RC copters aren’t that heavy, the blades shouldn’t have nearly enough inertia to get through bone. Could hit in just the wrong place and get killed that way, but not an actual head chopping.

The large ones are that heavy. My Raptor weighs about 10 lbs. 60" wooden rotor diameter has plenty of inertia.
