This R8 Targa is simply telling us it can actually fly minus the wings

Can’t definitely say. But this R8 really makes this EDGE 540X a poor contestant

Just to add to your info-comment pal. The Zivko Edge 540X is the most common aircraft used in the Red Bull Air Race World Series, in fact all champions of the World Series have flown this aircraft (Its the one used in this film).

FYI: The Zivko Edge 540 manufactured by Zivko Aeronautics is a highly aerobatic aircraft. Capable of a 420 degree per second roll rate and a 3,700 foot per minute climb rate, it has been flown to victory on the international Unlimited aerobatics circuit several times since the mid-1990s. A tandem-seat version is sold as the Edge 540T.
