I don't have any idea how easy (or difficult) it is to fly RC planes but it is obvious that you have the skills. Very cool putting the flight to music.

Consider quitting your day job and becoming a drone pilot.

Oh I found this on the internet, haha, it isn't me. I just liked it and since it had to do with music, I thought everyone else might, as well. Quite a nice merger of two of my interests, though.

beechcraft I know what you mean. I used to race motocross motorcycles and many times while riding I would have a tune playing in my head the entire time. It wasn't Rage 'Against the Machine' or any other amped up go crazy music but rather Ernesto Cortazars 'Morealis Waltz'.

That's right, a 'waltz' was playing in my head while doing 40' gaped jumps, whoops sections, and roosting the berms. This is because the music flowed so smoothly in my head that I could tie this feeling together with my physical activity and end up with a much more fluid and controlled outcome.

Certain beautiful flowing melodies can do this to me. VERY powerfully.

I can tell you from experience that flying an RC airplane is not a simple task.

That guy has LOTS of practice behind that great performance.

As a public service for anyone else who didn't know the Cortazar piece:

I can well imagine a hightlight videomontage of motocrossers doing their thing with this the only soundtrack!
