Trimming Trees using a Helicopter

I would like to hang out with the guys that came up with this as a solution. They can’t possibly be real engineers. I imagine it wouldn’t take much to snag the load and have instant crash landing. Seems to me dull blades could be a death sentence.

Here is another video that is the perfect example of just how fast things can go wrong. Here the load cable was slack and brought into the blades causing catastrophic failure. The pilot survived.
