Seen this from a few angles now..I have NO idea how the prop stayed on that plane, and the motor kept running..he literally must have slightly dipped the tips of the prop in the water...

These things are cool..but one of these days a plane is gonna go down and take someone besides the pilot..
WOW are they flying low and tight !

This type of flying should be illegal, but they won't stop until some politicians kids get killed, just the nature of the beast.

I hate this sport and can't wait till it comes to an end and it can't come soon enough.

Wrong,
Economics have already stopped it. The heads of Red Bull Racing were not truthful with Red Bull's head honcho and he fired them all. The whole thing is gone.
You can all run home and tell mommy all is well, you're safe.
