Here is my Outdoor Maiden Flight Review for the Eachine E33C RTF RC Camera Drone Quadcopter.

Eachine E33C RTF RC Camera Drone Quadcopter Outdoor Maiden Flight Review (6 min 26 sec)

This model is one of three different versions. The one featured in the video is the Eachine E33C and it has a 2MP camera. The Eachine E33 does not have a camera and the Eachine E33W is the Wifi FPV model.

Here are my review notes for this RC Camera Quadcopter:

Pros:
- The bright lights
- It appears to be pretty durable
- It comes with spare props and spinners
- Landing gear and prop guards are optional
- Three flight modes
- It will perform fun flips outdoors
- It comes with a camera
- It looks good
- You can shut off the lights to conserve battery power

Cons:
- The throttle is pretty touchy

You will see me unbox it, go over the part & pieces, show you the assembled jet, show you the lights in the dark, show you the control surfaces moving, give you a tip, and go over my review notes.

Freewing BAe Hawk T1 70mm EDF Jet With Red Arrow Paint Scheme - Unboxing & Review (15 min 17 sec)

Here are my Unboxing & Review notes:

Pros:
- The build is easy with very little gluing required
- The airframe is bigger and more attractive than I expected
- Detailed pilot and cockpit dashboard
- Large battery bay to accommodate lots of battery options
- Very bright LED lights
- Good quality flaps installed
- An excellent all around EDF value for the price

Cons:
- The only real con is needing to modify it to ensure debris doesn't get sucked up into the fan

This is my buddy Odell tearing up the skies airshow style at Warbirds Over Whatcom with his Freewing F-14 Tomcat Twin 80mm EDF Jet. He put on an excellent flight Flight Demo as always, which is impressive considering he hadn't flown this jet in two years!

This is my Eachine EX2 Mini RTF Brushless FPV Drone Quadcopter Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review. This is basically an MJX Bugs 3 Mini and will use the same battery.

Eachine EX2 Mini RTF Brushless FPV Drone Quadcopter Unboxing, Maiden Flight, And Review (17 min 52 sec)

In this video I unbox the parts and pieces. I go over the quad, radio, and other accessories. I also do a flight test, light test, FPV Camera test, and a comparison to MJX Bugs 3.

Here are my review notes for this Eachine EX2 Mini FPV RC Drone:

Pros:
- It is a nice beginner RTF FPV model perfect for someone with RC Quad flight experience that wants to get into hobby grade FPV.
- 5.8ghz FPV that will work with nearly any 5.8ghz box goggles, Fatshark FPV Goggles, or FPV monitor.
- Powerful 2S brushless motors
- Angle and Acro flight modes
- Two high and low rate flight options and both as super smooth & responsive in angle mode
- Bright lights that make this is good night flyer candidate

Cons:
- The proprietary battery is something I can look past, but it is definitely a con for me
- The camera position is not adjustable to make it easier for more advanced flyers to rip around
