Default Do You Guys Think This Is Real???

I found this video. Plane goes into a snaproll and one of it's wings comes off, then some how the pilot manages to land it? I saw a one wing landing of a jet, but that's because a jet is a lot different than an aerobatic airplane. What do you guys think?

If you pay close attention to the intact plane and the plane on the ground with one wing you'll see that a stripe disappears. This clearly indicates that it is a different airplane on the ground, most likely an RC plane. either TLC or Discovery (don't remember which) had a program where this video was featured in one segment. They clearly demonstrated it was fake but they also showed a guy up in Oregon who rigged an RC Yak to eject one wing and he flew it in a knife-edge and landed it fairly successfully. In fact, there's been several RC planes landed with one wing from what I understand. Full scale though.... not likely. They don't have the power to weight ratio and I hear knife-edge flight is pretty physically demanding.

Actually, the Giles uses push pull tubes, not cables.

I couldn't help but notice that when the plane is in knife edge so close to the ground that the rudder is neutral. But as stated-cool video.
