One these two vids look at the pilots head movement, he doesn't seem to be following it in some places. Looks like some fancy computer simulator/video dubbing??

Well, tho I agree that the guy in the video seems to be looking anywhere but AT the plane, it is an actual plane flying the actual manuvers. You can see the exhaust blowing on the pavement and at one point you can see the grass at the edge of the field reacting to the prop wash.
I think the guy is looking at where the plane is headed more than at the plane itself.
Anyway, I vote yes.

P.S. Whoever IS flying that sucker is GOOD.

Yes I think it's for real. At the end of the first vid did you see the bystander duck when the plane flew over his head. A bit to close for comfort and safety. John.

Thats nothing, I am new to RC Planes, I have only flew about 5 times and as soon as I figure out how to get My Plane out of a tree in the back yard I will be doing that. I have 15 acre's to fly in and there are two tree's standing alone with magnets in them
