This is the highest I have taken my UMX Radian on video (I am guessing at least 500 plus feet) and I decided to keep the video shown below pretty raw. It includes some pretty funny parts that show the interaction between my camera woman and myself:

This video shows some clips of me enjoying the heck out of my Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer taking off and landing on a dirt road in berry fields. I tried to do a lot of scale flight as well since this thing is so pretty in the air along with some basic stunts and tricks.

This was all captured with my new Sony Handycam, so there are some nice up-close shots of this plane in the air too

I did my best to put on an air show for all to enjoy with this video! This is the BlitzRCWorks StarMax RC F-18 EDF jet in the Blue Angel paint scheme.

My good friend John captures it all on video using the great zoom on my camera with many of the highlights!

PS: I know the landings were not good, but I put them in there anyway for fun lol

This video centers around me nearly losing my new Ultra Micro Radian RC plane last night on a bright and sunny evening. While it was missing from my sight for what seemed like forever, in that helpless span of time I decided I needed to ensure this wasn't going to happen again with my next plane since this one was likely gone forever.

Thankfully, I was able to regain sight with it after spinning circles for a bit. What you will find in this video are a few ideas I applied literally to the surfaces of this RC Plane.

My buddy John got a plane I have had my eye on for a while. That plane is the Parkzone Ultra Micro P-40 Warhawk.

John is about as experienced of an RC Pilot I know (he flies real planes too), so I jumped at the chance to record him flying this plane and putting it through its paces doing everything from aileron rolls to inverted flight.

This is the video that resulted from that event:

This is my buddy John's EPP Sukhoi SU-29 Prototype 3D Foamie or 3D Foamy RC Plane in full 3D Flying action at the edge of a berry field just outside of Lynden, Washington.

Here is footage of just the maiden flight and crashes from my Hobbyzone Super Cub adventure a couple of nights ago:

Hey guys!

So I got a Hobbyzone Super Cub in need of repair from a co-worker and that is where the adventure began.

I made a repair, maiden, flight, and crash video as a result. Of course, the crash part wasn't planned:

Enjoy!

Hi guys!

I was finally able to put together a review for my Sony Handycam that many of you have said positive things about via my RC videos.

This is a look at the Sony HDR-CX290 Sony Handycam out of the box and seeing it in action:

Pros

- Decent battery life and sound
- 8GB of memory and expandable with SD Cards
