Pretty impressive piloting skills to balance the plane on it's tail like a helicopter for as long as he did. I would think the power to weight ratio of that RC model is quite high.

Cool clip! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

That looks like an Edge 540. Here is another good site for videos and pictures of this large RC plane.

nice link nominal.the first time i watched the clip i thought," its goner stall" but the guy knew what he was doing.
i remember seeing a russian chap fly a su-48(?) like that at an air show,awesome.

SU-47 (S-37) BERKUT EXPERIMENTAL FIGHTER AIRCRAFT, RUSSIA
The Sukhoi Design Bureau of Moscow, Russia has developed the Su-47 (previously called the S-37 Berkut or Golden Eagle) fighter aircraft, which first flew in September 1997. Su-47 is in a forward swept wing configuration and uses a highly unstable triplane (with three main lifting surfaces) aerodynamic configuration. The Su-47 completed the first stage of flight trials in December 2001. In May 2002, Sukhoi was selected as prime contractor for the next-generation Russian PAK FA fighter programme. The PAK FA will be a development of the Su-47 but without the forward swept wings.

The design of the very high manoeuvrability prototype is based on the avionics and aerodynamics technologies developed for the Su-27 upgrade programme. Some of the systems and component designs from the Su-27, (the all weather supersonic fighter aircraft with NATO reporting name Flanker), have been used in the Su-47, for example the design of the canopy, landing gear, some of the avionics and the near-vertical tails.

MANOEUVRABILITY

The Su-47 has extremely high agility at subsonic speeds enabling the aircraft to alter its angle of attack and its flight path very quickly, and it also retains manoeuvrability in supersonic flight.

Maximum turn rates and the upper and lower limits on air speed for weapon launch are important criteria in terms of combat superiority. The Su-47 aircraft has very high levels of manoeuvrability with maintained stability and controllability at all angles of attack.

Maximum turn rates are important in close combat and also at medium and long range, when the mission may involve engaging consecutive targets in different sectors of the airspace. A high turn rate of the Su-47 allows the pilot to turn the fighter aircraft quickly towards the next target to initiate the weapon launch.

The swept-forward wing, compared to a swept-back wing of the same area, provides a number of advantages: higher lift to drag ratio; higher capacity in dogfight manoeuvres; higher range at subsonic speed; improved stall resistance and anti-spin characteristics; improved stability at high angles of attack; a lower minimum flight speed; and a shorter take-off and landing distance.

SU-37 ALL-WEATHER FIGHTER AIRCRAFT, RUSSIA
The Su-37 multi-role, all-weather fighter aircraft demonstrator is the latest member of a family of aircraft based on the Su-27, which was developed in 1977 by the Sukhoi Experimental Design Bureau in Moscow and is in service with the Russian Air Force and a number of other countries. This family also includes the Su-27UB, Su-30, Su-33, Su-32FN and Su-35, and has the NATO codename Flanker.

The new feature of the super-manoeuvrable Su-37 fighter is the two-dimensional thrust vector control engines, which allow the aircraft to recover from spins and stalls at almost any altitude, while it is also equipped with full digital fly-by-wire controls.

The first flight of the Su-37 prototype was in April 1996, with a public appearance at the Mosaero show. This was followed by a demonstration flight at the Farnborough 96 Airshow. The aircraft demonstrated new manoeuvres, such as the ability to point the nose away from direction of flight for sustained periods, rotating the nose through 360 degrees and recovering from tail slide by rolling into an entirely different plane. State funding for the aircraft was withdrawn for a time, but it was restored in 1999 and Su-37 is undergoing flight testing.

Holy ****! For the first couple of seconds I actually thought that guy was really holding on to the RC. Especially the first couple of seconds during takeoff, until I saw the langs flapping wildly on the puppet. Jeeeeeeeesh!

Xavier de Lapparent At take off.
http://www.futurshox.net//planes3/xavier-startup.jpg

Team Pilot and U.S. Aerobatic Foundation Director Phil Knight trained twice
with Xavier de Lapparent last fall; one six day session along with Mike
Goulian, Matt Chapman, and John Lillberg, and once for three days without
his team mates. Diane Hakala also brought Xavier out to Phoenix in November
for a six day session. Phil described that first session as a "very
rigorous workout". The four pilots each got in a minimum of three flights
a day, each flight being of 20 to 30 minutes duration. "Xavier is an
outstanding critiquer. I gained a lot of knowledge from the time spent
with him," claimed Phil. The other pilots also felt the time spent with
the 1994 World Champion was an extremely valuable experience.

I was looking for a video of Xavier de Lapparent... but couldn't find one at this time.
Looks like he trains quite a few of the Worlds Acrobatic Fliers and is one of the Top in the World.
I watch a Pitt's that is in the area... as soon as the good weather comes around he'll be out practising.
