This is a video of my buddy Bill crashing his beautiful Hobby King Durafly MK-24 Spitfire. To date, it is the most devastating crash I have ever uploaded on my channel, complete with sound on impact that will make you cringe.

If you like RC Plane crashes, it is a sure bet that you will like this one as well!

This video contains footage of my Parkzone F4U-1A Corsair WWII Warbird RC Plane off Semiahmoo Bay on the Pacific Ocean with awesome views of Mount Baker.

It shows a take-off from the worst rough I have ever flown out of and I also throw in some some scale flight, tricks, and two of the ugliest landings ever with this plane caught on video lol

This video shows some bashing fun with a Traxxas Revo 3.3 Nitro 1/10 Scale Monster Truck a Traxxas Slash 4x4 1/16 Scale Short Course Truck. The footage also includes RC Truck Racing on the strip I normally fly my RC Planes on.

DO NOT MISS the flip caught in slow-motion near the end of the video. It was really fun to see that in person!

This video is the complete Unboxing, Review, Build, and Maiden Flight for the new E-flite P-47 Thunderbolt BNF Basic with AS3X Technology. This is pretty much the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt version of the E-flite P-51 Mustang Dallas Doll that so many in the RC community have been excited about since its release last Fall. That one was modeled after one of the most famous WWII Warbirds in history, the North American P-51 Mustang.

Here are my review notes:

Cons:

- I had to replace the motor before I could fly it
- The hatch design is a step backward from the Dallas Doll Mustang
- The velcro that secures the battery ripped before the first flight

Pros:

- It has a beautiful finish
- Very easy build and radio set-up in my Spektrum DX6
- Retracts and flaps installed
- Its wide stance helps make landings easier

I was very relieved when I made this video. We recorded it just AFTER John had successfully completed his maiden flight with his PPG at Semiahmoo Bay just off the Pacific Ocean.

It was a great evening to say the least with amazing scenery and a very cool RC Plane for the location!

Enjoy!

This is the Flight Review and Maiden Flight for John with my E-flite UMX PT-17 Stearman. In this video he flys it with some commentary and then reviews it at the end after his flight.

This is a pretty rare thing for me since new planes evolk emotions of "This is mine" pretty easy.

I am proud of how this turned out, so please enjoy the video!
