Scaled down remote control aircraft
You know that's an RC plabe, right? Even says so on the link.
Impressive flying even for an RC.
A crash in an RC has fewer life altering consequences. Makes it easier to be crazy.
Them Ruskies are tiny little fellas.
I have seen a real Mig-29 at an airshow and it was very maneuverable. OTH Russian airplanes have a poor reputation for reliability and durability. Countries that can get western aircraft prefer them with Saab Gripens and refurbished F-16's being the economy choice.
The part about them being controlled from the ground is somewhat true.
CGI, not real.
I guess RC could probably do a reasonable profile like that.
2 min 5 sec point, look at the grass a few feet below the exhaust, no movement.
Wouldn’t the same aerodynamic principles apply to full scale?
However, there are other variables, such as: thrust to weight ratio (as well as inertia in a general sense), lack of pilot in an RC plane does away with human factors (think G-forces), etc.
Having said that, some of that definitely appears to be CGI to me.
Check out the attached link with video of a MIG-29 at the Farnborough Air Show.
I just glanced over the article. I need to start reading the entire story.
