There are tons of items you can use for this.

All you have to do is remember to "resize" the object.

Any larger object or pylon will work.

Thought so.

Took a vertical Limbo Stick, resized it and changed Material to "Foam".

But instead the Heli cut the Stick, the Stick cut the Heli. ��

Because it's "Realflight"
Not "RealFoam".

The RealFlight engine does not support cutting of objects. RealFlight uses one solid 3D object to create airport objects. Thus they can not be cut, smashed, broken apart, etc. The vast majority of the object it RealFlight are static objects that don't move at all including when collided with, in response to projectile collisions, wind or gravity. they just break your aircraft when hit with enough speed. The object that do respond to the previously mentioned things (dynamic airport objects) only move as one complete object and cannot be broken apart. There are a few object that explode when hit (example: a fuel truck) however they are completely destroyed on impact in a large fire ball.
