Wow.

How did they even manage the process of learning to FLY this thing? (Check out insane angle of attack and low airspeed at 3:00)...

I suspect that it involved a very large supply of spare parts.

I would assume that the exhaust vector works in concert with standard pitch/yaw controls thus there isn't a tremendous amount of difference in this and any other 3d capable RC aircraft.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

The very significant difference is that thrust vectoring isn't dependent on airflow over the control surfaces.
