A man who runs a YouTube channel called Hobby Wars, where he shows off model airplanes, was getting ready to demo one of his planes when a curious squirrel just so happened to come over to check it out.

As cool as squirrels are, we're pretty sure they don't know how to fly planes - but what happened next is still pretty darn awesome.
