I'd say it was a real video.
But not for me

Do you really need to cut the grass this time of year? Or is rcmonster99 just testing it out?

The strip has been in a pretty poor state for a while now, the double bladed mower was really suffering and doing quite a poor lumpy cut. A rotary mower does a far superior job when compared with a flat blade. We really do need to do some repairs to the strip in the spring.

Doesn't look faked to me, the movement is too random to have been CGI'd. But I expect the length of that video is the duration of his battery pack. Having tested my globalhawk's motor on the bench when compared to a similar thrust prop, the flight time at WOT is literally less than a third!

the grass was relatively short but "lumpy" some grass patches seem to grow faster than the others giving an uneven surface. this was a cut to tidy up the runway.
this mower did the whole runway in 30 mins !
I will need to restore the plastic rollers that support the cutters. I will need a lathe

funny enough we were kinda joking about that but I doubt the printed rollers will be strong enough. quick and cheap alternative is to use nylon rods...
