Link isn't working for me but I assume it has something with doing proper checks before takeoff?

What I find more interesting about this video is actually the fact that after about 10 seconds from takeoff her hand comes off the collective and does not go back until arriving at the airport. I understand you have to deal with radios/gps etc. but it's just casually not on it. Not saying this to attack the pilot because as a commerical pilot I see stuff similar like this that would make most flight schools faint.

My question is do other pilots on this form do this as well?

Hmm, the link was working yesterday, but not anymore?!

Don't know what happened?,...but yes, it was to a letter I got from the FAA about a year ago, about performing a hover check, due to a rise in related incidents! I myself have seen quite a few videos of pilots just yanking it off the ground right into a turn! She wasn't as extreme as some, but I would have sat in a hover a bit longer myself!

As for cruising collective hand off? I don't think I do it,...I guess I'll have to see next time I go up? :)
