Pretty amazing what can be done when you get two people to hold the wing tips and keep out of the shot

nah. look at how little the wing is flexing. a 2-point hold would create a lot more bending,

6m DG minimum weight ~18 lbs and minimum landing speed ~25 mph.

The DG doesn't land like a DLG and the Pilot stands there so relaxed.
He can't hold the big fuse with one hand anyway.

Some wing flex more, some don't.

Clearly a fake, as it says below the picture

Jonathon wasn't at the field today to deny his fakery. I like the flaps down spoilers up, and his confidently relaxed posture as he's about to get knocked over. The gear was up though, or maybe that's why he had to catch it?.... I fly with some funny guys. Funny like a clown. Hope you all had an entertaining weekend.

That's a two-handed catch if you ever wanted to try it...
