    Look what can be done when you take the pilot out of the cockpit!
    What would the G forces be if a full sized helicopter could fly like this?:surprised3::surprised3::surprised3::surprised3:

    Without all the pilot life support, and removing the cockpit hardware and all the other support hardware the power to weight ratio makes it has much more performance. This is actually an old vid, there doing even more maneuvers.
    It is real and in real time, not fast forwarded.

    Kinda makes you wounder what there flying at area 51 that makes people think there UFO's. I'm sure there testing high performance UAV's that can out preform any aircraft that has a pilot on board.

    BUT, that is a RC 'copter, not a full sized one. I wonder what the power to weight and lift ratio is on that one compared to a real full sized one.

    Well that was my point, full sized choppers have so much life support for the pilot navigation controls fuel, armor, weapons, redundant systems that add lots of weight reducing the power to weight ratio.
    I bet the military has UAV's that are near full size but are drones and can do maneuvers that make them look like there some kind of UFO because they can seem to do things conventional aircraft can do.

    Here are some model jets that are fairly large but watch how they can maneuver.
