Flite Test - The Best RC Show Ever!!!

FLITE TEST
The Parkzone F4F Wildcat
REVIEW
Flite Test - Parkzone F4F Wildcat - REVIEW (8 min 1 sec)


This is a little show that we've been trying to get off the ground.
We'd love your feedback! If you'd like to see more shows like this please spread the word to help us get an audience.

FliteTest - Review of the Parkezone F4F Wildcat BNF

Key Features:
  • Ready to fly in minutes
  • Full 4-channel control (throttle, aileron, elevator and rudder)
  • 3S 11.1V 1300mAh Li-Po battery and balancing charger included
  • Spektrum™ AR500 DSM2™ 5-channel sport receiver installed
  • Powerful 480-size 960Kv brushless outrunner motor installed
  • Dual aileron servos for precise control
  • Battery compartment accommodates most 1800-2100mAh Li-Po packs (sold separately)
  • Scale details include realistic paint scheme, molded panel lines, simulated retractable landing gear and hand-painted pilot figure
  • Only requires a full range DSM2 aircraft transmitter (sold separately)
This is a sweet flying airplane! I wasn't expecting much when I bought it. Once I got in the air, it quickly became my favorite plane. It definitely helps to have some flight time under your belt before fliying this this one… it's fast! I recommend using the elevator and the rudder together to get a tight snap roll. Parkzone did a great job of building the power system (prop/motor/esc/battery). I find myself flying at 3/4 to full throttle a lot and nothing gets hot. If you love warbirds, and speed, I highly recommend this plane.

Nice video, I really liked the camera plane view, and the comic relief was just about right.

I agree with nalby. I enjoyed watching. When will you be doing a show on that E-Flite Taylorcraft 450 that is so prominently displayed in the intro?

stone,
The show is good. Nice production value. The show has some nice flying, some nice info and you kept it interesting and not dry. I think this would appeal to all of us fliers and others looking for something entertaining to watch. If you have theses reviews with some of the other ideas from your other thread I would say you have a winner. I would watch this on the internet and TV if you get a deal. Good luck and keep up the good work.

Chad,

Having all that space to fly, right outside your door, makes me want to move out to Ohio.

Thanks for the video. It was definitely one of the best RC reviews I've seen, and at no point did I get bored and want to close the browser window.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Great show! I was really blown away. Josh and Josh work great together, its nice having the balance between an expert pilot and a, uhm, well not so experienced pilot

Subscribed to the channel, and can't wait for the next one.

Also Stonekap are you the man behind the camera? Or one of the dueling Joshuas?

Loved it, would love it better if it were about 5-10 longer with maybe assembly. It was really well done.

i asume you know geekbeat tv? if not look it up and study how they do it (they have epesodes where they explain how its done)
personal ; lower the volume of the backing track or even eliminate it; it makes it harder to listen for me.
if you want more exposure get on the all things that fly podcast.
