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.
