    Chopper down! We have a chopper down!

    A helicopter crashed on Pikes peak this morning while shooting an Audi commercial.

    Are they sure there was a driver? I thought they were going to attempt the unmanned ascent sometime this month.

    I use the "Moustache" spelling. Otherwise my username wouldn't be so classy.

    And now for the obvious joke...

    Guess Audi needs to start working on a pilot-less helicopter soon...

    I was waiting for that one. Wonder if the chopper was engineered by Germans?

    Helicopter crashes are not pretty. Flying rotor pieces will cut right through a car. If there where survivors the pilot likely had at least some control. Hope everyone comes through OK.

    I suspect it was probably an Audi helicopter and the electrical system simply quit.

    It's probably part of their advertising. Eliminating human error and such.
