Hi there, I am a new member; but have been reading ATS for a long time.
I actually fly these types of RC helicopters as a hobby. They are a ton of fun; and take a lot of practice to do what the guy in the video is doing
(called '3D' flying). The most appropriate way to get started in the hobby is to buy a flight simulator that includes RC helicopters and practice,
Night flying is very popular with RC plane and helicopter enthusiasts. And, you can purchase all types of light 'kits' to go on your plane/heli.
I have seen a couple of helis so decked out in lights that some people possibly could mistake it for a UFO.
