Tman15tmb 1734 Posted February 8, 2015 Report Share Posted February 8, 2015 So I was flying around with SaltyDog and he decided to give me the controls to his helicopter because he had to go AFK and take care of something. Mistake #1. After notifying the downed civilian I was going to be there soon I started my slow decent to a "smooth" landing just outside of Athira. I got down safely without dying and only knocked down two walls with my tail rotor. At this point I'm beginning to feel awesome about myself. I then get out of the helicopter with the rotors still moving figuring it would be an easy takeoff. Mistake #2. I revive the fallen patron and make my way back to the helicopter only to see the helicopter is missing. At this point my mind is flooded with questions. Did I not park it here? Did someone steal it? I swear I locked it.. Maybe SaltyDog came back and had to fly off to revive someone? Maybe he was going to get gas then he was going to fly back and pick me up?? I then look up in the sky and I could see the group marker getting further and further away from me. I figured SaltyDog was in control of the helicopter but every time I tried talking to him I got no response. I was beginning to worry.. I done fucked up this time! It was all beginning to set in. A message kept appearing in group chat " SaltyDog, Out of Gas ". It was at this point when I realized I probably should have spooled down and turned off the helicopter before I got out. When SaltyDog came back 10 minutes later he asked why he was crashed into a hillside. To my delight I was happy to hear his helicopter didn't blow up. Luckily he was only 2.2km away from where I landed in Athira and not in the ocean. I learned a very important lesson that night. Always turn off the helicopter before you get out. Now I know haha. I can't wait to get my wings soon! Look out World!! 6 Quote Link to comment
