    I was just waiting for that moment where he crashes the plane into the wall, and it smashes. It never happened :/

    I wonder if you can program a real plane to control with a little controller.

    now he just has to do that in winds up to 50mph...
    then thats when we say it is good.
    still brilliant though, that plane is worth around £500 or more :->:->:->:->:->:->:->:->:->v

    "i didn`t know it was aerodynamically possible for that plane to do some of the things it did :O"

    It is. A model airplane only does what a real airplane does. For instance, if you let it drop nose down from a high altitude and then suddenly use the flaps on the wings that control the altitude, it will break the wings and the plane will crash, due to the sudden air resistance at a high velocity. Just as in a real plane.

    Some of those moves are impossible in a normal sized plane. I couldn`t tell you exactly why but I know that a plane cannot hover with its nose pointed straight up in the air. I`m pretty sure it would stall.

    A fully aerobatic plane, such as the 300 Super used at airshows, can do all this and more, with a pilot and with real winds.

    "A model airplane only does what a real airplane does."

    Any real plane would have stalled if it tried to hover like that model did. A real plane relies on the angle of attack of its wings to provide thrust to keep it in the air, whereas the hovering proved that the model plane could be held in the air by its engine alone.

    just a note to everyone who says "a real plane can`t do that nose pointing up hover trick" yeah they can and do.
    never seen a mig being put through it`s paces? or for that matter an f-16??

    a prop plane can`t do it granted but it could do just about anything else you see in this clip.

    as for too many g`s that`s just BS man air race pilots are pushing 9.5 g plus in some turns and without doing any math i`d venture a guesstamate that most if not all of this is totally possable

    no real airplane could pull all that off, or at least not nearly as clean as that foamy did. and theirs very simple reason for that.

    one: the power to weight ratio on those are absolutly insane. the fusalage with all the elecronics weighs about a pound, given hes running Li-Po batteries and a brushless motor. which by the looks of it hes definatly is.

    and two: the g forces on and real plane that was taking turns that tight, and that fast, would plaster a pilot all over the canopy. practically make his insides his outsides. and it would absolutly rip the plane to peices.

    but that of course is if the plane replicates that move for move. the only impossible thing i can see no plane doing, is the thing in the beginning. the spinning thing. that was tight.


    all around was a great video. i wonder ho the pilot was...

    if i was asked to do those tricks in that building, about 5 seconds in they would need at least one new light, a couple of ceiling pannels, a guy to clean it all up, i would be out a few hundered dollars, and a plane.

    I`d like to see the R/C controller pull off some moves in a real plane.

    The music was from Take the Money and Run, a Woody Allen film from 1969. The film includes the classic chain gang escape of 7 guys chained together , where this music was first used.Same music was later used in Austin Powers.
    That was a really cool example of piloting.

    Oops the song is Soul Bossa Nova by Quncy Jones. Apparently it made its first film appearance in the film the Pawnbroker, about a bitter old Jewish pawnbroker who survived the holocaust....yeeesh......8-(
