The aerobatic planes raced in Red Bull’s thrilling air races are insanely robust and capable planes which can do something really wild, and visually stunning stunts.

Not to mention that these planes are ultra light, weighing in about 1500 kilos, or as much as a Smart car. They’re also ridiculously rigid and strong which is why they can pull off such jaw-dropping maneuvers like rapid aileron rolls which put the body under some serious G-force stress.
