Instapundit links to an amazing video of a guy demonstrating his indoor radio-controlled airplane fliying skills. You really have to see this. The first thing I thought when I saw the plane's hover capability was 'micro-drone'. Stick a mini camera... [Read More]

Holy smoke! That's amazing, and apparently filmed in Germany. Leave it to Deutschland to demonstrate such extreme precision.

Whoo. Thanks for that - I would not have thought some of those manuevers possible if I had not seen them.

Who cleaned up the vomit in the cockpit? :-)

Imagine what he could do with a Predator UAV...

Wow! That is really cool! But I don't think I'd describe the R/C operator as a "Pilot."

This is called 3D electric indoor aerobatics. There are TONS of these videos (with 1/3 scale planes on http://www.rcuniverse.com. It's a great hobby and it takes great talent to master this.

*jaw drops*
Wow, all I can say is wow. How much time has that guy spent on getting that good? It's not like you wake up one day and poof there it is.

Lindey, The "operators" of Predator drones are classified as pilots by the military.

As someone that has flown full sized sailplanes, props, jets, and helicopters, I take my hat off to the pilot in this video.

In some respects it's actually easier to fly aerobatics when you are inside the aircraft.

Holly molly this is uber awesome!

Posted by: Viggen | Jun 11, 2006 10:18:26 AM

The cameraperson is almost as good as the pilot1

Posted by: boisee | Jun 11, 2006 11:51:48 AM

What kind of plane is that? It's not a regular rc plane is it?

Posted by: david Robinson | Jun 11, 2006 1:18:25 PM

Excellent show...I would venture to guess that these guys must have alot of time on there hands to play with toys.. that had to take some pratice......

Posted by: HDrider | Jun 11, 2006 7:22:49 PM

This has been going on for several years, even indoor with electric powered planes as this one. Look up R/C groups.

The guy is clearly very good. The music goes will with the performance, too, and I did enjoy it.

you know though... if he did have a UAV predator... he could use it to really distract people with it. especially if he put those trailing tassles on the wings of the UAV. OH and had that music playing from the UAV. HAHAHAHAHAHAa....

simply, AWESOME!

Absolutely awesome!

HE'S A PILOT OF RC NUFF SAID. A GREAT JOB IN CONFINED SPACE, WHO COULD DO AS WELL?

Posted by: DICK | Jun 15, 2006 10:11:32 AM

They are called 3D foamies.

It is a "profile" plane design and extremely light with a very powerful electric motor and large moving airlon/rudder surfaces for doing extreme manouvers.

They are actually quite inexpensive, the radio, motor and battery are the big cost.

He would have been practicing those manouvers everyday for two years to get that good.
