No no no no no no no no no no no no

This really doesn't belong here but I feel I should warn about this stupid stunt. I don't think electrics have to power to do this. Good.

Well, I hope you figured out already that its fake...
(when the model flies)

I have to admit that my heart almost stopped when the airplane took off

Very cool!

It's not a real person in the air you know don't you? Only a dummy.

You see a real person being dragged down the runway, the camera angle changes, but the person changes to a dummy.

But there are two dangerous stunts by real people here. The first is the real person being dragged down the runway, the second is where the person approaches the hovering plane to grasp the dummy.

I didn't catch it until he started hovering. I'd been watching giant scale videos awhile and by the time this came up, I'd seen enough power to go HUH ?

Don't worry about it; it is just Darwinism in Action...

If you mean ME, I was so advanced I was making Hawking nervous of his place. So I had to reverse evolve.
Actually, I have hung outside a flying aircraft to check the fuel gauge, It didn't scare me. I thought it was fun. It would hold trim well enough.

It looks like the guy is on a creeper of some sorts (a board w/ casters) while being dragged.

I believe they do. There's plenty of power systems out there powering planes this size with unlimited vertical power, hovering a human around wouldn't be impossible. It'd be stupidly dangerous, but not impossible

I know, that was only part of the plan. The Chinese have a full production electric plane now, a two place running on a monster lipo. I'll look it up later.

That's no dumber than the stunts the "professionals" do, hovering within arm's length of their expert-but-ignorant beehinds with their 20% aircraft. Electric or liquid-fueled, it's still stupid.

There were a lot of No No's in that video. Gambling on spilling the gooey stuff out of our bag seems to be a worldwide fascination.

I seem to remember this from a while back, or something very similar.
