This video is the complete Unboxing, Review, Build, and Maiden Flight for the new E-flite P-47 Thunderbolt BNF Basic with AS3X Technology. This is pretty much the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt version of the E-flite P-51 Mustang Dallas Doll that so many in the RC community have been excited about since its release last Fall. That one was modeled after one of the most famous WWII Warbirds in history, the North American P-51 Mustang.

Here are my review notes:

Cons:

- I had to replace the motor before I could fly it
- The hatch design is a step backward from the Dallas Doll Mustang
- The velcro that secures the battery ripped before the first flight

Pros:

- It has a beautiful finish
- Very easy build and radio set-up in my Spektrum DX6
- Retracts and flaps installed
- Its wide stance helps make landings easier

I was very relieved when I made this video. We recorded it just AFTER John had successfully completed his maiden flight with his PPG at Semiahmoo Bay just off the Pacific Ocean.

It was a great evening to say the least with amazing scenery and a very cool RC Plane for the location!

Enjoy!

This is the Flight Review and Maiden Flight for John with my E-flite UMX PT-17 Stearman. In this video he flys it with some commentary and then reviews it at the end after his flight.

This is a pretty rare thing for me since new planes evolk emotions of "This is mine" pretty easy.

I am proud of how this turned out, so please enjoy the video!

This is the second batch of flights with a special guest that showed up after John and I started getting the hang of it. We went out and did some more today and I even tried some launches that matched its name with pretty good success!

Of course those aren't shown in this video but will be showing up soon!

This is just a small clip of what I captured on video this past Sunday. RC Trucks are so much fun! I think I need to get another job and buy some of those in addition to my RC Aircraft and Rockets!
