It's not real [1]. It is a clever hoax [2] using an elaborate arrangement of string, elastic, mirrors and very strong magnets [3].

[1] It can't be. It just can't!
[2] It must be
[3] Probably

Sort of redefines the concept of a helicopter having a top, an underneath, a front or a back doesn't it?

I'd like to see some shots of the dude's fingers working the controls!

Nothing to it.
If anyone would like to see my helicopter the bottom bit is planted in Surrey. The cockpit part is somewhere in Sussex. The rotor blades are in various locations inside Londonís congestion zone and the tail rotor was last seen heading in a Channel Islands kind of direction.

He must have leant how to do this on a playstation. Only you couldn't afford to make too many mistakes with the real thing surely.

Its easy when you know how, I've had a r/c helicopter for 15 years each move in its self is simple (I can do some of the moves), its when you put them together it becomes tricky. You must also have the engine running 100% sweet which is also not that easy, any misfire or slight power loss and its down. Not flown mine for about 3 years now but often see a man that can do most of the moves, but not as one long move. To see it for real you can't believe it. I would like to learn some more but no time for that, my boat is far and away much better.

I saw a guy doing some of the flip over moves a few years back at a local RC aircraft show. He also hovered it upside down and cut the grass then finished off with an upside down auto-rotation (fliping it back over at the last minute for the landing obviously). I was very impressed at the time but he wasn't in the same league as matey on the video clip, as you said I guess its down to how you put them all together.

Having made this wise purchase a couple of minutes ago, I dare say I'll be doing similar in a couple of days.

You can rent some time on it, but bend it and you've bought it.
