Watch This RC Top Gun Pilot His Helicopter Through Impossible Manoeuvres

Carl Groover is the Maverick of RC helicopters. He does things with a miniature chopper that seem to defy the laws of gravity and physics. It will seriously blow your mind, and not just because you lost an hour of sleep this weekend.

Carl is helping Smarter Every Day with a series of videos that take a look at the physics behind how a helicopter stays aloft. But this intro only serves to show off his amazing piloting skills. By the end of it you’ll be less interested in how a helicopter works, and more curious how many RC helicopters Carl has wrecked while honing his skills. [Smarter Every Day via The Awesomer]
