i got one of these for christmas:
http://www.firebox.com/product/1832?...rc_id=boystoys

its lots of fun, a full 4 channel machine a real step up from the PicoZ which I was given earlier in the year. Harder to fly but totally controllable ...... shame I dont have the skill yet, keep smashing it against everything in the room.

Would it be "technically" possible to do that kind of display in a full size chopper?

No the G forces alone would be immense. It's like watching a hummingbird's movements against an Eagle. Smaller things are far more nimble.

Remember the Lynx STILL holds the World record for speed in a chopper - 249.1mph and that was back in 1986. There's a limit to what you can do with large flappy rotor blades!!!
