Indoor RC Aerobatics. The last half of the video especially made my jaw drop.

I must point out - that plane had reverse. I'd never seen that before.

The pitch of the prop is controllable.

Do you know this for sure? I was just figuring he was spinning the electric motor in reverse. Prop wouldn't be as efficient this way, but it would do the job. An adjustable pitch prop would be pretty fancy.

Reversing the motor would be very hard to control. Probably has something similar to this

I was wondering about if it was actually the prop spinning backwards or how he was doing the slow controlled descent...

weird, never seen that.
