They use one here in NW Ga. in the ridges and mountains. In the early 80's I worked cutting for this same power company and it took a few weeks to go up one short side of Lookout Mt. This chopper could've probably done it in a 1/2 day or less

I was told the inventer was killed testing it, got hung up and held him in one spot too long and he came down. Now they can drop it if it gets hung. That's what I was told by one of the NGEMC (power company) big wheels

The pilot really has to keep him mind on what he's doin
