This video is and the Unboxing, Review, and Build 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 on it so far:

Cons:
- The motor has issues that have yet to be determined
- The hatch design is a step backward from the Dallas Doll Mustang

Pros:
- Beautiful finish
- Very easy build and radio set-up in my Spektrum DX6
- Retracts and flaps installed

Of course those aren't shown in this video but will be showing up soon!

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.

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.
