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.

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.

You know that's an RC plabe, right? Even says so on the link.
I just glanced over the article. I need to start reading the entire story. :oops:
