This is the Maiden Outdoor Flight with my new Syma X8HG HD Camera Drone with Altitude Hold.

Maiden Outdoor Flight - Syma X8HG HD Camera Drone with Altitude Hold (4 min 18 sec)

This Camera Drone is very similar to my Syma X8C Venture Drone Quadcopter, only it looks better and comes with a way better camera. A GoPro will even fit in its camera holder (Look for future videos with it below this quadcopter).

Here are my review notes for this multirotor beast!

Pros:
- Very stable flight
- Altitude hold works well
- Beautiful dark red color
- High quality 8MP and very light weight HD GoPro like camera
- Anti-vibration camera mount
- 2S battery power
- Excellent lights

Cons:
- Loud brushed motors
- Slow yaw rate

This is my Maiden Flight and GPS Test for the new Hubsan X4 Pro H109S Real Time FPV Drone with GPS in some strong wind!

Maiden Flight & GPS Test - Hubsan X4 Pro H109S Real Time FPV Drone with GPS (6 min 17 sec)

I was very impressed with how well it flew and I experienced no issues the altitude hold or GPS I tested. I also took it up really high to test its range and I experienced no issues there The only problem I had was not turning on the record feature on the camera to capture what I saw when I took it way up in the sky.

When I compare its flight characteristics to that of my Blade 350 QX3, i put this one on par or better than that quadcopter. It is just more solid in the air and to the touch. It also is bigger with beter quality parts and has an FPV HD Camera.

This is my Unboxing and Review for my new Eleven Hobby P-51 Mustang WWII Warbird RC Plane.

Unboxing and Review - Eleven Hobby P-51 Mustang WWII Warbird RC Plane (12 min 15 sec)

I unbox and review the plane in this video and get you ready to watch the upcoming maiden flight!

Review Notes:

Pros:
- I love P-51's!
- The finish is way better than my E-flite P-51 Mustang with the Dallas Doll Paint Scheme with very few dents and dings. It is much like the Eleven Hobby T-28 Trojan with its level of finish quality.
- Scale details such as optional drop tanks.
- Flaps & retracts installed.

Cons:
- Assembly wasn't as fast as advertised but quick for a P-51 and it didn't require any glue.
- Had to secure the ESC with velcro because it was free floating

Hubsan H502S X4 Desire GPS FPV Drone Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review (12 min 38 sec)

In this video I unbox this really attractive and well thought out quadcopter and give it a quick indoor flight to get a feel for how it will handle outdoors. It has a ton of really advanced features that typically only come on bigger and more expensive quads, so I can't wait to fly it outside!

Enjoy!
