When you’re watching this video of Red Bull helicopter pilot Chuck Aaron perform, you may think that it’s an RC model … what full-size heli do you know of that can do tricks like this? Believe it or not, he’s flying in the cockpit of his modified full-size machine. He’s one of only three licensed pilots in the world who fly these types of aerobatics and the only one in the U.S. Check it out!
