    I must say the loops and flying backwards and upside down are quite impressive.

    That is damn impressive, it was like he had it on a piece of string. Good thing there was no pilot inside, he would've passed out within 2 secs lol.

    Have not seen it yet but i'll bet it is like the RC JETS i saw on the history channel a couple weeks back. Unbelievable, real jets in these 4-5 ft long miniature creations. F-18's and all other current designs. Real suspension on the landing gear and accurate in every flight control. They could really haul ass up to 200 mph. Barrel rolls hard turns just incredible. Anyone got one?

    That has got to be one of the most amazing RC viddys I have ever seen. The pilot is absolutely incredible! Can you imagine how many he has crashed to get that good??? UNREAL VIDEO!

    I started to get into the R/C Heli fun and it was just too much. That Heli that guy was flying was probably worth 5k can you imagine one wrong twitch of the finger and BAM it's gone. Not to mention with those two standing right there it would have lopped a head off in about 1 sec. One hell of a pilot though. At the end of the video he does a autorotation which is when they cut all power and spin down on the energy already in the blades adjusting the pitch of the blades to generate more energy on the way down to the ground. Amazing.

    BTW If anyone is interested in learning to fly these and R/C Planes I have a simulator for sale. It is the realflight simulator (not the USB version). Please contact me if you are interested.

    Thats some pretty good 3D flying. One of my good friends can do most if not all of that stuff. He was trained by the best of the best of professional r/c heli flying, Curtis Youngblood. Every summer he used to go for a week to his house in texas for instruction.

    It connects through the joystick port in the back of the pc. I have flown both versions and really haven't seen a drop in performance. The USB is just easier to hook up. It actually is a fun piece of software to play around with even if you don't fly yet. Most of the hobby stores will push you really hard to buy one of these to start out with. It is easier to crash on software than with the real aircraft (and way cheaper) 1 crash with a heli could easly mean a trip back to the hobby store to buy another full kit and start over.

    jim..RealFlight is flat out fun! I use that and Aerofly Professional. If you have any interest in flying RC, this is a must have item. Make sure you get the serial number for the software or you will be unable to load it.
