Hey guys!

This is my buddy Bill's second flight with this Hobbyking Durafly Tundra. He had a Near Crash and nearly made it onto my next RC Plane Crash Compilation video with this flight. He worked his magic and made a nice relaxing little flight a lot more intense at the end!

I recently bought the Kinexsis KX80 Lipo Battery Charger and did a video review for it below. It features an Unboxing, Charge Tests, and a Review to wrap things up at the end of the video.

This is my first Hobby Grade charger and I am excited about that. It is multi-chemistry and is an AC/DC Charger. I probably won't use it at the field or with anything but LiPo Batteries, but it is nice to know that I have options with this cool little charger.

Review Notes:

Pros
- Battery storage discharge setting with Automatic Shut-Off
- Charges 1S-6S batteries
- Nice digital display
- Easy to use interface
- Efficient fan system to keep it cool
- Great value!

Cons
- You have to buy accessories to utilize its 1S charging capability

This is my buddy Bill's Maiden Flight with his Hobbyking Durafly Tundra 1300mm RC Bush Plane! We had some wind to deal with, but this plane handled it will ease. It handled it a lot like my Parkzone Sport Cub S2 RC Plane and possibly even better.

This was the fastest UMX or ultra micro RC Flight I have ever had up until this past weekend. It was the result of a 180mAh Hyperion 3S Babble Batt fueling my E-flite UMX P-47 Thunderbolt WWII Warbird RC Plane in a quick but very spirited flight that John and I captured on video, with the help of our assistant Will

This is my E-flite UMX J-3 Cub BNF Basic RC Plane Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review video. I unbox the plane and go over a few things, including comparing the size of this RC Aircraft to the legendary Hobbyzone Champ Ultra Micro and the very popular Parkzone Ultra Micro P-51 Mustang. I also put it in the air for the first time and share my post maiden flight thoughts to wrap up this video.

Overall I am pretty happy with how the maiden went. It flies close to as well as my E-flite UMX Pitts and my E-flite UMX P-47, which are my two best flying 2S micros. The main difference is that like the P-47, I had to make some adjustments after the maiden to really dial it in with the CG. Look for the second flight video with speed tests coming soon!

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Scale looks
- Wide CG range
- Smooth gentle flight
- Plenty of power
- Flies like a bigger more powerful 4-channel Hobbyzone Champ

Cons:
- Dents and dings to the wing and bottom of fuse were bad
- Battery hatch magnet is only taped in. That came loose when testing the CG before the maiden.

This is the Maiden Flight video for my E-flite UMX J-3 Cub BNF Basic.

Overall I am pretty happy with how the maiden went. It flies close to as well as my E-flite UMX Pitts and my E-flite UMX P-47, which are my two best flying 2S micros. The main difference is that like the P-47, I had to make some adjustments after the maiden to really dial it in with the CG.

Enjoy!

- 5 minute flight times

I got this Blade Nano QX 3D Drone BNF for Christmas from my sister & brother-in-law and WOW is it awesome!

I include a lot of detail AND some bloopers in this video as well, so if you have 14 minutes, this Unboxing, Maiden Flight, Review, and Bloopers might be well worth your time

Here are my review notes:

Three flight modes
Handles very smoothly
Battery is not integrated

Cons:
Proprietary battery
Props fly off randomly
The body is very weak
Front and backwards flips require lots of space

This is an awesome video of my buddy tearing up the sky with his FMS P-51 Mustang Tuskegee Airmen Red Tail.

This has to be one of if not the best videos I have ever uploaded to my channel. I have had this footage for over a month, but wanted to be sure I put the time required to edit this video to its full potential, and I think I did that

Enjoy!

This is my Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review for the brand new RTF Estes Proto-N! It is the new World's Smallest Drone and it is so small I can't believe it even flies.

Pros:
- It has a very big and nice radio compared to others in this space
- The size is far smaller than you would imagine it could be
- Three flight modes
- A flip button

Cons:
- Even slight air currents impact its flight
- The gyro fights you randomly in the first two flight modes unless you are actively moving around and doing flips. Hovering will cause you nothing but problems with this one.

This is my Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review for my new Dromida Verso Inversion RTF RC Quadcopter.

This was one of my most interesting unboxings and reviews to date due to the fact the the product arrived with a broken, yet still flyable radio. I also tried something new with the size comparison to try to reduce the length of the video, but clearly that did not happen lol

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Three flight modes
- Inverted flight with the push of a button
- LCD screen with digital feedback
- It is unique for this price point
- Button on the radio to turn the lights off and on
- Rugged body and prop guards for prop protection
- It is pretty fun when it works correctly

Cons:
- It arrived with a broken thumbstick
- The 360 flight was not easy to make happen
- One of the motors had some inconsistencies working

This was a flight at a local Warbird event where things didn't go as planned. This video shows that you have to be ready at any moment because anything, including landing gear can fail at any time.

The pilot flying this Giant Scale Piper Cub RC Plane is named Mike. Him and his dad saved the day in a lot of ways. It was pretty windy, which kept a lot of guys who had put many hours into building their beautiful Warbirds grounded.

This is my unboxing and build video for my new Blade 350 QX3 BNF Quadcopter Aerial Camera Platform for GoPro. I plan to use my GoPro Hero 4 with this classy beast. In this video you will learn a lot about this RC Aircraft and what you will need to do to get it up and running.

Here are my unboxing notes.

Pros:
- GPS
- Different flight modes
- Brushless motors
- GoPro holder for in-flight video
- Nice battery and charger for long flight times

Cons:
- Having to wrap you GoPro each flight will be a pain
- It doesn't come with a manual
- It is complex to get set-up, which makes not having a proper manual come with it that much worse.
