The guy can use his one as a lawnmower

Great skills.
I would've wrecked that thing if I had to do a stunt like that

I don't understand how that is physicaly possible... I don't study aviation, but it seems fake to me. I'm not getting how the flying upside-down works... as I see it the blades should pull it down into the grass and there is nothing to make it 'hover.' Someone please explain cause its going to bug me all day....

If you looks closely you can see the rotor blade start spinning the other way once it's upside down. But yes, you are right, if the blades didn't reverse, it would just go even faster into the ground.

To answer your Q : You can change the pitch/ angle or the main rotor blades so that they pull in the opposite direction so this is tottally possible but it takes an unbelieveable amount of skill.

I can barely tune my chopper to hover let alone do stuff like that, its totally insane.

Completely disregard my last post......
I was looking again at the video and T-spec is more then right. What I thought was the rotors switching directions was just my laptop not enjoying playing the video in full screen.

Man i feel like such an idiot....
