    Like to see a guy in a full size try some of those moves!

    That guy is in tune with that machine. Very impressive.

    That guy isn't "in tune with his machine," he is part of it.
    As an eye doc I am awed by his depth perception, hand-eye coordination, etc.

    He got my heart rate up with a model airplane---Wow.

    Enjoy,

    Amazing control. I wonder how many airplanes he broke learning how to fly like that.

    That is one talented guy, with some amazing kit!
    Lots of strength in that plane, as well as low weight, a huge engine and plenty of prop!

    I'm sending the link to my Dad, at 77 he still flies RC airplanes all the time!

    I've never tried RC planes, but I can imagine me doing quite a few of those tricks......during the half a minute after take-off and just before crashing it into unrecognizable pieces

    Phenomenal,

    Of course, there are those who would have said that was my normal mode of flying when I was taking flying lessons (and I didn't even have to try)
