Won Over By Reality
By Tim Bayer
BRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—1/21/2013—Last week, in this space, I shared a funny video. This week, I came across something I found . . . astonishing.
I’d not seen a model aircraft competition before, so I was unprepared for the current state of the technology and the pilots’ skill. Thus, I found the flying of this competitor, R. J. Gritter, to be graceful, creative and flat-out amazing. Gritter’s aerial acrobatics appear to defy some of the laws of aerodynamics.
If, like me, you thought you knew what aerobatics were possible using a model airplane, take two minutes to be . . . astonished.
