    As a doctor... I am obviously an expert in these things

    It looks odd because it is a scale model.

    I have seen a Mig (not sure which one) do a similar but not as low maneuver at waterkloof airshow many moons ago, some pilots seem to really know their stuff. That was probably quite a bit lower that the pilot intended, but he managed to recover it.
    Those plates would buckle very quickly if he did make contact.

    There is no windflow over the wings so he cannot use aileron/elevator/rudder to balance, unless he is using thrust vectoring at the back? I tried to see but I could not see the nozzle move.
    Hanging from a prop is a lot easier that directing thrust from the back.

    It is an RC model and some serious thrust vectoring happening there. Hats off to that pilot, he is brilliant and probably has deep pockets I would guestimate the cost of that model over R60k. Tuff Stuff will not insure that so if it comes short.........eina

    Yep. And at 0.42 you can see another RC airplane on the lower left hand corner.
