    Anybody else find it crazy that nearly the entire wing is an aileron? The inverted hovering was pretty incredible too.

    I am confused how he was able to hover in a nose dive and hover strait up. The plane either had to have props at both the front and back or the prop was able to switch directions in about a tenth of a second.

    Davis, I think it is a reversible pitch propeller like in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoNgThzzE...

    What`s weird I think is how stable it is; in the video I linked you can tell the plane becomes difficult to pilot when the pitch was reversed. Maybe the spin helped stabilize it? Also, his control surfaces are huge to allow for the fine control.

    Still cool though; must have taken a lot of practise.

    "kid got skills, but never laid"

    Are you kidding? The amount of poon that kid got after that display- right afterward in the bathroom, too.

    Also, the description made me lol because I imagined a UAV doing that in the middle of a battle in Iraq.

    Yeah, its just styrofoam, no wonder the little engine can keep it in the air without needing an airfoil.

    It looks like the camera guy has a hard time anticipating where the plane is going. at least at 2:14 he does.
