    Impressive flying even for an RC.

    A crash in an RC has fewer life altering consequences. Makes it easier to be crazy.

    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?

    Aerodynamic: yes

    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.
