Not what you would call "reVOLTing" doubt there was a lot of "high tension" while that was going on......i bet he was glad to get "ohm" at the end of the day! :D :D

but did he offer any "resistance" i wonder , and what "capacity" did he work ?

ok ok .....'nuff said :D

The lines are brand-new and are not energized. The man sitting on the lines has no gear to protect him from coronal discharge. See also: at the 1 minute mark.

#8 Yup. If it was live he would wear a faraday suit and you would see some "lightning" pass over from the lines to the cable on the heli.

#6 really depends on the inductance with the electromagnomotive forces applied i dare say his "resistance" would be a great path for step potential voltages lucky they had a open circuit at the section isolator with bonds to earth for protection against fault currents or he would be toast

There is some room for error, the wires won't be live and it would be much trickier with an aeroplane. Right tool for the Job, if you can fly a helecoptor it's the spinning equivevant of doing reverse parking between two cars. :D
