This is just a small clip of what I captured on video this past Sunday. RC Trucks are so much fun! I think I need to get another job and buy some of those in addition to my RC Aircraft and Rockets!

My buddy Shawn did a great job here recording me with my Parkzone Ultra Micro T-28 Trojan in some stiff and choppy wind. It turned out well with nice views of Mount Baker in the background.

Enjoy!

This Parkzone Ultra Micro P-51 Mustang BNF WWII Warbird's first flight with no landing gear was caught on video for the first time yesterday. This is an RC Plane with AS3X Technology and is certainly one of my favorites too. I would also like to note that the airplane is completely stock during the entire video and always is in all of my videos with it to date.

This video was shot of my buddy Shawn flying his second attempt at owning a Parkzone Icon A5. This time is a Full-Sized version. The first attempt was with the Parkzone Ultra Micro Icon A5 Float Plane.

Below is the complete Unboxing, Review, and Maiden Flight video for my new E-flite UMX Sbach 342 3D BNF Basic RC Plane with AS3X Technology.

I talk about the pros and cons of this plane and even do a few tests during its maiden flight, which you can watch separately below as well.

Here is a summary of the pros and cons right here:

Pros:

- It is a beautifully colored UMX RC Plane
- Very responsive to inputs (almost to a fault)
- Nice large battery bay
- Excellent reinforcements are built-in
- I didn't pay for extra stuff I didn't want to pay for

Cons:

- It arrived with dents and dings on plane
- Difficult to see against a dark sky
- It was tough to find a good CG
- Limp wheel pant out of the box
- Packed in stinky foam

In the video GBLynden's RC Plane Crash Compilation Volume Two, the following planes are seen crashing:

- A spectacular crash into John's SUV making the Hobbyzone Super Cub crash one to remember.
- A crash into the bushes with my Parkzone Archer on its Maiden Flight make this Parkzone Archer Crash the most unique crash I have ever had caught on video.
- My E-flite UMX Pitts smashing into the ground at a pretty good clip shortly after I bought it.
- The E-flite UMX Habu crash with pieces flying off after a bad approach.
- Shawn's Mini Popwing crash into a tree on his Maiden Flight
- The Parkzone Ultra Micro Icon A5 crash series is both funny and heart wrenching to me. Shawn bought that plane off the classifieds and it flew like crap.

I hope you enjoy these RC Plane Crashes and look forward to sharing more fun with you in the future!

This is the updated version of my "Visibility Enhancements" video I made back in May shortly after this E-flite UMX Radian RC Glider with AS3X Technology came out. The changes I have made since then was to use all of the black strips that came with this plane and add green and orange Sharpie ink to this plane. The key for the best result on this foam is to use the liquid Sharpie ink and NOT the traditional style marker. The green didn't turn out as well as it could have as a result of previous attempts with the traditional style Sharpie.

Enjoy!

This is a pretty fun vid that is worth the watch if you have a few minutes. It has John, Shawn, and I all flying our Parkzone T-28 Parkflyers out at the "Loop"!

The video shows clips of each of us and some of us at the same time with the North American T-28 Trojan RC Plane replica. I also tried to do a lot of scale flight as well since John took up plenty of the video showing off his skills with his plane.

This video is a complete review of the Syma X12 Nano 6-Axis Gyro Remote Control Quadcopter. In it I discuss this amazing little RC Quadcopter and break it down with video flight footage.

Review Notes:

Pros:
- Beg‌inner friendly nano drone
- Very durable and flies great crash after crash
- High rates and low rates allow you to grow as you learn
- Hovers better than my Cheerson CX-10, Cheerson CX-10A, or my Estes Proto-X
- Longer battery life than my other nano quads (6-8 minutes)
- Yaw and throttle trim

Cons:
- Too small for FPV
- The yaw is way slower than is ideal for this quad
- The charge plug comes out easier than it should while charging

Enjoy!

This is some pretty cool footage we shot a couple of weeks ago that included a vertical flight test with the new battery adapter I bought from Glenn at RC-Connectors.com. We also captured a nice scale take-off and landing with Mount Baker in plain view in the background. I kept flying even after the wind kicked up with this awesome little E-Flite UMX B-17 Flying Fortress WWII Bomber.

This is a scale Parkzone F4F Wildcat video that shows just how crazy HH was to stop making this plane anymore. It along with my E-flite P-51 Mustang and Parkzone T-28 Trojan are by far the best parkflyer sized RC Planes I have ever flown with this one probably being at the top of that list. It is that good!

Enjoy!

This video is the Cheerson CX-10A nano quadcopter unboxing, review, and flight review of the World's Smallest Drone with Headless Mode.

Review Notes:

Pros:
- Beg‌inner friendly
- Very durable and flies great crash after crash
- Three flight modes to allow you to grow as you learn
- Hovers better than my CX-10
- Headless mode for beginners
- Longer batter life than my CX-10

Cons:
- Too small for FPV
- No yaw or throttle trim
- Headless mode is more for beginners than advanced RC Pilots, though it can come in handy for everyone at certain times.

This is a great little RC Quad, just like its big brother the Cheerson CX-10 and is a great little RC Quad trainer too.

This video is the byproduct of a lot of fun with John and Shawn along with much intense video editing 25 minutes of raw footage) of them flying their TechOne Mini PopWings.

I hope you guys enjoy what I hope to be is one of the best Mini PopWing videos on YouTube with highlights including Shawn splitting some trees using his Fatshark FPV set-up.

This video is the Cheerson CX-10 nano quadcopter unboxing, review, and flight review of the World's Smallest Quadcopter according to the sources I have seen online. I had heard a lot about it before my purchase, so I just had to get one of my own after having a great time with my Estes Proto-X!

Review Notes:

Cons:
- No yaw or throttle trim
- Only one yaw speed
- Difficult to orient the small drone
- Very stiff radio springs
- Too small for FPV

Pros:
- Beg‌inner friendly nano drone
- Very durable and flew great crash after crash
- Three flight modes to allow you to grow as you learn
- Does great flips with the push of a button
- Looks great in the air or on the table

This is a great little RC heli, just like the Estes Proto-X mainly because it keeps going and going after crashing. That durability makes the CX-10 and Proto-X great little RC Quad trainers.

This is my only EDF Warbird and it is my oldest Warbird/2nd plane after my Hobbyzone Champ (Yes, I did fall for the whole 100mph marketing stuff and I was lucky that it survived its first flight lol)

It really has been to hell and back yet is still flying great as you can see in the video lol

This video was shot of my buddy Shawn flying his Parkzone Ultra Micro Icon A5 and includes fun bonus RC Plane crash footage captured with my Sony Handycam.

This is one he bought in the classifieds and it was clearly not right. Shawn is a pretty good RC pilot and it took some heavy editing to salvage this footage. It turned out to be a very fun and entertaining video, so please enjoy!

This was a very fun video to make featuring my Parkzone Sport Cub and I did it with my flying buddies John and Shawn. There are a few things that you wouldn't expect to find in an RC Plane video in here, so be sure to watch the entire video to get the full experience. That is unless you don't like Hot Rods or appreciate the USA's National Symbol.
