This is my Unboxing and Review for the new E-flite UMX B-25 Mitchell BNF Basic RC Plane WWII Bomber. In this video I look it over showing you a variety of different angles, discuss its pros & cons, and I even compare it side by side to the E-flite UMX B-17 Flying Fortress.

Here are some out of the box pros and cons:

Pros
- It looks really good
- Landing gear stays on in the box
- Semi symmetrical airfoil
- Reinforced wing and control surfaces

Cons
- Landing gear appears to be a weak point
- Elevator asymmetry
- Pre-order issues

This is my first outdoor flight in stability mode with my new Blade Zeyrok Drone BNF! I even included a little preview footage with it in stagility mode at the end, including some footage of a crash lol

This my first outdoor flight caught on videso of the new World's Smallest Drone known as the RTF Estes Proto-N!

It is so small I can't believe it even flies and it is even crazier for me to be able to fly it outside and still see it!

I waited for nearly five months for my Blade Zeyrok Drone BNF RC Quadcopter to arrive and it is finally here! I made an unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review video with this quadcopter to let you know everything I now know about it.

I went through and unboxed it, talked about its parts and pieces, took it on its maiden flight (I flew it in the dark too), and then did a closing review).

Here are my review notes for this Horizon Hobby RC Drone after flying it outdoors:

Pros
- Outstanding looks
- It performs much better than I orignally thought it would outdoors, thought I thought it would still do well
- It handles crashes with ease with its lightweight but rugged build
- It is BNF, so it binds to my Spektrum DX6
- Three flight modes
- The lights make it a nice night flyer
- Accepts my 600mAh Nano-Tech batteries

Cons
- No prop guards and it is a beginner quad
- It flies like a toy grade quad in some ways
- Brushed motors
- Very loud

This is my first complete flight video with my Runcam 2 Action Cam. I put it to the test in on my RTF Syma X8C Venture recording my crazy friends at our favorite flying spot.

In this video I unbox the JXD 510G 5.8G FPV 6 Axis RC Drone, review its parts and pieces, put it through its maiden flight & first FPV Flight, and at the end of the video I wrap it up with a review based on my experiences with this RC Quad.

Here are my review notes for this FPV multirotor:

Pros:

- Altitude hold is ROCK SOLID!
- The 5.8G FPV has very little latency
- The video display looks great in person
- It is very responsive even on the first of three flight modes
- The 2.0MP HD Camera is solid
- I can use a wide variety of batteries with it given the battery connector is comes with.

Cons:

- Short flight time (4-5 minutes)

This is the latest version of the JXD 509G FPV Drone and I am excited for the wind to calm down so I can get is some nice flights outdoors.
