Last Christmas I got both a remote control helicopter and plane, and I’ve been practicing a lot. So when my buddy Bruce sent me one of these YouTube video clips I realized just how much more practice I need.
The following are some of the finest remote control pilots I’ve seen. I cannot express to you how much dexterity and concentration this takes, because these guys make it look much too easy.
This helicopter pilot is putting his machine at massive risk by using steel racks as an obstacle course:
This helicopter pilot reminds me of a Harry Potter movie. It’s as if he’s flicking a magic wand and just making this thing dance at will:
Flying a giant B-1 Bomber RC plane requires skill. Dropping a smaller X1 RC jet from the wing mid air requires even more skill. Setting off a rocket on the X1 is just unheard of!
Some amazing slow speed indoor airplane acrobatics:
This is crazy! The pilot is like an 8 year old kid! Just look at his tiny hands:
I didn’t even know these types of stunts were possible with an airplane:
I would have crashed this bad boy on the very first stunt:
And here is one bonus video. This guy literally jumps his remote control car over his house!
