DustOff Flight #3 in Expert Mode with Wind on the ground of 6-8mph (10-13kph) and I'm guessing 12-16mph (19-26kph) approx. 20 feet up.
I wish I could take off from the ground with this Plane but it's too rough here and it noses over.
It's a bit of a handful in this much Wind and the Wind got strong enough at one point where I could barely turn it back into the Wind ;-)

I really like these Micro EPP Planes because they are so durable and easy to fly with Gyro Stabilization.
I also like the fact that they have an Expert or Manual Mode setting to really have Fun!
Let's take a look at the Features and then get it into the air and see how it performs.
We'll evaluate the stock setup can see if any adjustments are necessary.

DustOff #11 - "Glue & Fly™ Series" F22 Micro V2 - It handles the Wind fairly well ;-)

Time to Blow the Dust Off this Micro Parkjet ;-)
It's been too long since I've flown this Parkjet.
The Wind is a bit stronger than I would like and some significant Gust keep coming in but I think it handled it fairly well.
Although, there's nothing like landing in a pretty good Crosswind ;-)

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Intermediate to Advanced.
Intermediate setup is a 2S Power System with 10 points more Dual-Rate than on a 3S Setup.
Advanced setup is a 3S Power System.
It's very docile on a 2S Power System, Fast & Aerobatic with a 3S Power System.

The GFS F22 Micro V2 Plans are available for Patrons!

I really have a lot of fun with My FlyBear 2CH Planes.
I have Reviewed the FlyBear Red Baron Biplane, F-16, SU-35, and now the P-38 ;-)
All the FlyBear Planes I've reviewed so far required just a bit of Nose Weight to get them flying extremely well.
I was not so fortunate with this FlyBear Plane.

This Plane has some issues as follows:

#1 During the 1st Throttle Up one of the Props flew off ;-)
This was an easy fix.

#2 The Plane wanted to dramatically Nose UP when applying Throttle ;-)
Another fairly easy fix.

#3 The Plane has no Right Turn Authority at all ;-(
Not such an easy fix.

I have performed the MOD on the Motor Alignment, Fuselage Booms Alignment, Main Wing Spar Installation, and it is now ready for it's 3rd MOD Test Flight!

Chuck Glider EPP 480mm Wingspan
https://www.banggood.com/custlink/G3mvzWGK96

I just recently purchased some new Micro Props and thought I'd test one on my RC Converted Chuck Glider.
The best Prop I've found for this 1104 7000kv Motor on 2S is the Eachine 3020 Prop.
It provides excellent Thrust & Efficiency.
I'm testing out the Gemfan Hurricane 3018 Prop.
I'm curious if a prop with slightly less pitch for this high KV Motor will be even better?

DustOff #4 - Volantex Super Cub V765 - Great Flying Super Cub with Plenty of Power ;-)

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9G7Jwocy64

I don't have a lot of time with this Plane but I'm getting more comfortable with it every time I take it out.
I'm a bit rusty on the landings as it's been a while since I've flown this Super Cub.
This Plane is fairly Aerobatic and has plenty of power to pull through large loops ;-)
Let's get it in the Air!

This Plane is Courtesy of Banggood.
Thank you Banggood for sending this Plane for Review!

I really have a lot of fun with My FlyBear 2CH Planes.
I have Reviewed the FlyBear Red Baron Biplane, F-16, SU-35, and now the P-38 ;-)
All the FlyBear Planes I've reviewed so far required just a bit of Nose Weight to get them flying extremely well.
I was not so fortunate with this FlyBear Plane.

This Plane has some issues as follows:

#1 During the 1st Throttle Up one of the Props flew off ;-)
This was an easy fix.

#2 The Plane wanted to dramatically Nose UP when applying Throttle ;-)
Another fairly easy fix.

#3 The Plane has no Right Turn Authority at all ;-(
Not such an easy fix.

I have performed the MOD on the Motor Alignment and it is now ready for it's 1st MOD Test Flight!

Review - FlyBear FX816 P38 Lightning Micro Warbird & Maiden Flight

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivj621WJi2o

This Item is courtesy of Banggood!
I want to thank Banggood for sending this Plane for Review.

I love these (2) Channel Planes from FlyBear.
So far, I have reviewed their Red Baron Biplane, F-16, and SU-35 Planes.
These Micro 2CH Planes are a lot of fun to fly.
They are also a great way to introduce RC Planes to Kids.
All of their Planes I've reviewed so far needed a bit of nose weight to fly perfectly.
Let's see how this one performs and if it needs any nose weight.

Needful Things - Micro Low Profile Velcro for Micro Planes - Why is this Difficult to Find?

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCff1TJfYBI

After receiving the Kit for the MinimumRC B-25 Mitchell Bomber, I noticed it had some very nice Low Profile Micro Velcro for attaching the LIPOs to the side of the Fuselage.
The Velco Adhesive and the Hook & Loop hold the LIPO very well indeed, and it's very Low Profile Velcro.
I decided I wanted to get some more of this Micro Low Profile Velcro for other Micro Plane Projects.
I discovered it's not as easy to find as I first thought.

Test Flight - King Kong / LDARC Tiny Wing 450 - Testing It's Slow Flight Capability

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSxabJpLxIU

I always immediately test how fast an aircraft will fly, however, slow flight capability is very important as well.
My favorite aircraft are those that are aerobatic and have a wide flight envelope.
Let's see how slowly this one will fly ;-)
