I can fly

The camera was recording at x frames per second (lets say 30), and coincidentally the rotor was making 30 rotations in a second. Since the camera is taking 30 pictures a second and the blades were making 30 full rotations a second, the camera keeps taking pictures at the exact moment that the blades have returned to their original position.

(It's from /k/)

I remember when I first saw this on youtube.
The first comment was something like this : "That helicopter is flying because Chuck Norris is blowing on it"
It was back in the days when Chuck Norris' jokes were in.
Back when the internet had yet to turn me into an unproductive cynical faggot.

Those were good times.

Would have to be an insanely quick shutter speed for video to capture the blades with no blur.

i haven't used this in years   
   
The helicopter is a Hind MI-26 AKA The Crocodile   
It is a troop transport and a weapons platform with a turret on the nose controlled by one of the two pilots along with dozens of pod missiles along the sides   
   
The reason the blades appear to near motionless is due to the blades rotation rate and the frame rate matching up almost perfectly

The camera was recording at x frames per second (lets say 30), and coincidentally the rotor was making 30 rotations in a second. Since the camera is taking 30 pictures a second and the blades were making 30 full rotations a second, the camera keeps taking pictures at the exact moment that the blades have returned to their original position. So this is the reason that it appears as though the blades aren't moving, when in actuality they are probably moving quit fast, probably the normal amount of rotation that helicopters make, which in this hypothetical thought experiment is 30 rotations, which is the same as the number of camera frames per second. I say hypothetical because I know that the average camera has, oh I'd say, 24 frames per second, but I liked the sound of 30 when I was explaining it so I used that to clarify the illusory appearance of the helicopters movement, which simply coincides with the number of frames per second on the camera in use, which is, let's say, 30 frames per second, which is the same as the helicopters, which is creating the optical trickery that you see displayed before you here in GIF form.

to be a bit more proper. The camera is recording at x frames per second (let's say 30) and the rotor is making a whole multiple of (x/5) rotations per second (since it has 5 blades) to achieve the effect of stationary look.   
   
The blade can make only 1/5 of a rotation in between the frames and it would still appear as non moving, since it looks identical as the original position.

It's not flying, it's falling with style.
