It takes a lot of everything including money. When I was flying these things in earnest I was able to fly inverted and do some of the tricks however you have to factor in a fair few crashes getting there which cost at least 200 a time and on a bad one you could easily do 500.

All the guys that fly at the level you see on the VID are sponsored hence why they can afford to fly like they do.

Ribs are cheap in comparison !!

That guy is seriously good.... I bet he's gone through lots of parts / helicopters tho . I got a wee electric 3ch copter a few years ago and after about 3 months I got it off the ground. shortly after that I flew it into the garage door....
