Watch this helicopter pilot doing some really wild acrobatics

Chuck Aaron makes helicopters fly upside down thanks to some heavy modifications to his lightweight chopper. And does barrel rolls too. And all sorts of crazy ass maneuvers that are a pleasure to watch but make my stomach turn.

Aaron wanted to try aerobatic maneuvers in a helicopter bad enough that he got funding from Red Bull to build a highly customized, ultra lightweight chopper that can handle tricks you're used to seeing fighter jets do. Of course, the helicopter is now a flying Red Bull ad, but it's a flying Red Bull ad that can do the impossible.

The sponsorship also gave Aaron, a self-identified daredevil, the opportunity to become the world's first pilot licensed to perform aerobatic maneuvers in a helicopter. Based on how harrowing those tricks look, he's probably be the only one for a while. Evel Kneivel would be proud.
