KELOWNA - While most people would have a hard time simply flying and landing a radio controlled airplane, some locals have put together a video showing what's possible when a skilled set of hands are behind the stick.

Triple Threat RC uploaded the 13-minute video to YouTube last week. It contains footage of gas-powered planes showing off for the crowd at the 2015 Spring Fun Fly.

The planes stall, spin, hover and barrel roll in an exhibition of their limits at the Kelowna Ogopogo Radio Control club event.
