We Post Videos of Our Micro Planes

I noticed that there isn't an active thread allowing us to show off us flying our micro planes in action, so I figured let's get one going since nothing let's us know what a plane can do versus seeing one in action.

The rules of this thread are as follows:

1) Have fun posting and viewing videos of you and your friends flying their micro planes.
2) Let's limit the text discussion of the videos to a minimum. That will help us fit more video per page to help show others that visit our section just how great these little planes can be!
3) You can post any small RC plane of any make or model. This is all about sharing and having fun, not necessarily selling or advancing one product line or another.
4) Be courteous. Not all of us can afford RC planes and high-end video equipment, so be polite to those that don't have the best editing software and video recording devices. This should be all-inclusive to those of us that love flying micro planes.
5) Have fun!

That is is for now unless someone else would like to add anything to this.

nice vid just a tip. When using iphone to video hold it horizontal to capture vid then you get the whole screen shown. Ask me how I know, after many of the same vids and wondering why does it do that.

GB,

Great idea for a thread!

Here's a hatcam clip of me flying the UMX Carbon Cub in my yard last winter. It was the first time I had ever tried ROS on floats with any plane. Works very well!

Eflite UMX Carbon Cub - ROS on floats (9 min 14 sec)


Here's a clip from last fall of me flying the Sbach 3D on 3s at the club field in winds up to 19 MPH.

Having fun with the UMX Sbach 3D on 3s in a 6-19 MPH wind (10 min 34 sec)


Here's an old clip of me windsurfing the Beast 3D on 3s in winds up to 26 MPH. I love windsurfing with this plane!

Eflite UMX Beast 3D on 3s - in a 26 MPH wind! Stationary KE, elevator landings, etc (8 min 10 sec)

Had an inverted landing at the end, don't fly too low upside down!

Thanks guys for posting those fun videos and to Joel for his kind words about this thread!

This is a video I took last nigh of my new P-51. I love how it looks and feels in the air.

That P-51 sure looks great! Nice & smooth in the air, too. BTW - I originally put up the wrong CC video in my last post. Now you can see the winter flight.

Here's some CC footage from yesterday evening.

UMX Carbon Cub - more low & slow in the yard (10 min 8 sec)

I really like the new P-51 Mustang for sure!

Nice winter flight. I love being able to fly year around with these micro planes.

Since I am posting, I'd better post another video to keep in with the thread rules:

Cool clip of the MV! I haven't flown mine outdoors yet. Guess I should give it a go.

Here are a couple of on-board clips I shot last season.

On-board the CC at the field.

Eflite UMX Carbon Cub SS - more on-board video (8 min 26 sec)


Don't eat too much before coming along for a ride in a 300W/pound UMX Beast. Better give those straps another tug!

Eflite UMX Beast 3D on 3s - on-board video (6 min 40 sec)


Back on Terra-firma, here's a clip of the UMX MiG at the field. Big-air aerobatics such as huge loops and huge Cuban-eights, and some full-stall landing practice.

Eflite UMX MiG 15 - full-stall landing practice (4 min 19 sec)
