This remote-controlled airplane is no child’s toy. What it can do completely defies explanation and gravity. One commenter even called it “witchcraft!”
What you are about to see, however, isn’t a product of the dark arts. Indoor pattern, or “F3P,” is a little-known sport that combines remote-controlled airplanes with precision aerobatics. It takes place in a confined space, such as a gymnasium, and utilizes lightweight planes and variable-pitch propellers. When set to music, it looks more like a dance than an air show.
Watch as this plane astounds the audience with gravity-defying leaps, twirls, and dips. The ballerina-like moves are really quite beautiful.
I never thought I would be so moved by a remote-controlled airplane. What an amazing performance!
