This video features my Girlfriend and I taking out my JLB Racing Cheetah 4x4 1/10 RTR Brushless RC Truggy 21101 With New 120A ESC for the first time.

JLB Racing Cheetah Brushless RC Truggy With New 120A ESC Maiden Run (5 min 36 sec)

I am very happy with the performance I got out of my newest JLB Cheetah and my Girlfriend even had a good time driving it! Because I have this, she now gets to enjoy my JLB Racing Cheetah RC Monster Truck when we go have RC fun with John and the rest of the crew.

Here are my pros and cons:

Pros:
- New 120A ESC
- Flysky Radio and Receiver
- The motor is new and sounds more intense with the same specs
- It is fast and the new tires seems to offer more control
- Bright red tail lights
- It is durable and great for bashing

Cons:
- Not all of the stickers are applied to the RC Truck
- The new radio does not have a throttle dual rate function

Here are my review notes for this Micro FPV Drone:

- The price point is very reasonable price
- PNP and BNF versions are available
- It accepts and flies well with a wide range of battery options
- You can optimize it in Betaflight

Cons
- It requires soldering in a small space with the PNP version
- You have to setup and arm it in Betaflight

Hey guys!

This video shows a flight with both a Freewing Messerschmitt Me 262 70mm EDF Jet and Freewing A-10 Thunderbolt II Super Scale 80MM EDF Jet.

This was recorded at Warbirds Over Whatcom and the planes were flown by two very cool and nice RC Pilots.

This video is of a Snoopy Doghouse RC Plane at Warbirds Over Whatcom with crashes and surprises.

I didn't get a chance to speak with the pilot, but I am thankful he put this plane up in the air so I could make this video to share with you guys.

The RC Plane has guns and other details built-in to match the old Snoopy Doghouse from the Peanuts Cartoon when he battles the Red Baron.

This is the unboxing and Review for the new Eachine VR D2 Pro FPV Goggles. In this video I unbox and review the goggles. My test subjects for DVR footage recorded with the google's DRV Recorder were the new Blade Inductrix FPV Pro and the very cool Eachine RatingKing F14 4x4 FPV Buggy.

Eachine VR D2 Pro FPV Goggles Unboxing and Review (20 min 46 sec)

Here are my review notes for these Eachine FPV Goggles:

Pros:
- It has a DVR
- The DVR is comparable to Fatshark Dominator V3 quality.
- The range is very good for this price point.
- It can be mounted on a tripod
- The headstrap is nice.
- The battery it comes with lasts a while and it works with the batteries from my Eachine 007 FPV Goggles
- The lens is adjustable to work with different people's eyes
- The price for all it can do is impressive
- Perfect for beginners wanting to get reliable Googles to see if FPV is for them without breaking the bank
- It has a lot of features even more expensive goggles don't have

Cons:
- While it is DVR is good quality, it is less intuitive than you'd hope for beginner DVR googles.
- It feels cheaper than more expensive goggles, as you'd assume.

This the XK A700 Sky Dancer 750mm RC Glider FPV Flight & AKK A1 FPV Camera System Review video.

XK A700 Sky Dancer 750mm RC Glider FPV Flight & AKK A1 FPV Camera System Review (5 min 20 sec)

In this video I unboxed the AKK A1 Micro Camera FPV Camera System and showed onboard footage on my nice new RC Sailplane with music.

These are my review notes after FPVing the XK A700 Sky Dancer 750mm RTF Ultra Micro RC Glider:

Pros:
- Long flight time of around 15 minutes
- It glided nice once in the air
- It has good power with a 2S 300mAh lipo
- Looks pretty cool
- Set-up is easy for this RC Plane
- It transports well in its box
- It comes FPV Ready and is a nice little FPV Platform
- Beginners may find it easy to learn on

Cons:
- Does not offer great control, even on high rates, especially when compared to the E-flite UMX Radian
- You need a little more space to fly it than you would think

I only have positive things to say about the AKK A1 Micro Camera FPV Camera System, which I mention in the video and I do not have any cons for it at this time.
