    Amazing RC airplane indoor trick flying - GIF

    Amazing RC airplane indoor trick flying. I'm not even sure that this qualifies as an airplane.

    If that were a full sized plane the term vomit commit would fit perfectly

    I wonder if this is an electric airplane with the immediate stops & reversals being due to motor/prop reversal? It looks like a lightweight, tab & slot design on the plane, so not a whole lot of mass there to fight inertia with... amazing aerobatics.

    They call them "foamies" and they have small electric motors. They extremely light weight (polyethelene), I believe. They are not even close to scale flying. Some of the really good pilots can reverse the motor and stop in mid flight and do in flight vectoring.

    Agreed Jon, finishing a perfectly flat spin, inverting and into an outside loop is well beyond any airplanes capabilities, let a lone the pilot. I've seen T6's do stuff I didn't think possible but this foam job (almost looks like a P40) and the Exceptional RC Jockey are off the charts...and cartwheels...sheeze. Thanks Jon that was FUN!
