That is pretty impressive. I have 5 gas powered RC airplanes that I haven't flown in years, but that is hard to keep one elevation like that especially moving in a car and thru a tunnel.

I was hoping for some carnage... It would be more impressive if the guy was driving, flying the plane, eating a Royale w/ Cheese, smokin' a doobie, talkin' on his cell phone, and disciplining his kids at the same time...

Oh, and things like this are the reason cagers try to kill us on a daily basis...

Dangerous. How'd you like to be in front of him if you had to slow down suddenly?

Obviously someone else was driving that car and could stop the car. That plane wouldn't do anything to your car if it hit it. Probably hurt a little bit on a bike if you were wearing gear, a lot more damage if you werent. Plus that plane most likely has a ton more insurance coverage than all your vehicles put together. A lot of hobbyists have million dollar plans.

Nice tunnel, must be great to drive through there with a nice exhaust.

I was thinking if you were on a bike. The propeller driving into your skin wouldn't be a good thing. And that thing was obviously more erratic than controlling a car.

It was impressive that he could control it in a small space like that, but it was still a dangerous thing to do.
