Very nice! If anyone is wondering why it can fly so slow, I believe it is filled with Helium.

I would say,light material because helium already flies on standing mode :-)

Very nice!, only problem is it's an indoor flyer only, you could possibly fly it outside but any wind or even a bee fart will send it out of control.

It's a helium filled indoor flyer. Absolutely awesome! Flies really scale!

That model is specifically filled with helium in that video. Though I've heard that they do fly it without the helium sometimes. But the key to slow flying is to build light. Here is a very slow flying giant indoor plane that is not filled with helium:

Giant Slow-Flying C-47 Model Indoors (8 min 35 sec)


Actually the most impressive feat of slow flying I've ever seen is not RC but an old school duration free flight glider. Having never seen such things before, the first time I saw the youtube video my jaw dropped and I realized that what I've been building all along were merely kids toys:
