Has anyone tried to open a beer bottle with an R-44? This is funny, it takes a few minutes to load.

Now that is flying skill!! To be accurate to 1 inch, that is amazing. Did they have to use the opener? Because they appeared to remove the top of some bottles with a corner of the landing skid.

There were times when I was like "Just move in and get it!! You're almost there!" I'm not a helicopter pilot though but it does appear difficult.

AMAZING! JApanese Television has serious issues! They have this extraordinary imagination to create this kinds of things.

OTOH the pilots skills are without doubt, EXCELLENT! I would feel safe flying with them.

This is one of the funniest videos I have scene in a long time. But, the piloting skills of both the Japanese and US pilots is amazing. I think the Japanese pilot is a little steadier, though. It appears the US pilot broke the top of the bottle on his first attempt to open it.
