This video is the Cheerson CX-10 nano quadcopter unboxing, review, and flight review of the World's Smallest Quadcopter according to the sources I have seen online. I had heard a lot about it before my purchase, so I just had to get one of my own after having a great time with my Estes Proto-X!

Review Notes:

Cons:
- No yaw or throttle trim
- Only one yaw speed
- Difficult to orient the small drone
- Very stiff radio springs
- Too small for FPV

Pros:
- Beg‌inner friendly nano drone
- Very durable and flew great crash after crash
- Three flight modes to allow you to grow as you learn
- Does great flips with the push of a button
- Looks great in the air or on the table

This is a great little RC heli, just like the Estes Proto-X mainly because it keeps going and going after crashing. That durability makes the CX-10 and Proto-X great little RC Quad trainers.

This is my only EDF Warbird and it is my oldest Warbird/2nd plane after my Hobbyzone Champ (Yes, I did fall for the whole 100mph marketing stuff and I was lucky that it survived its first flight lol)

It really has been to hell and back yet is still flying great as you can see in the video lol

This video shows my buddy John's E-flite P-51 Mustang with views of Mt. Baker and the Twin Sisters. It shows slow scale and trick flight footage on a windy day.

Enjoy!

This video was shot of my buddy Shawn flying his Parkzone Ultra Micro Icon A5 and includes fun bonus RC Plane crash footage captured with my Sony Handycam.

This is one he bought in the classifieds and it was clearly not right. Shawn is a pretty good RC pilot and it took some heavy editing to salvage this footage. It turned out to be a very fun and entertaining video, so please enjoy!

This was a very fun video to make featuring my Parkzone Sport Cub and I did it with my flying buddies John and Shawn. There are a few things that you wouldn't expect to find in an RC Plane video in here, so be sure to watch the entire video to get the full experience. That is unless you don't like Hot Rods or appreciate the USA's National Symbol.

This video is the Estes Proto-X Nano Quadcopter Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Flight Review of the World's Smallest Quadcopter according to the Estes Proto-X website. I had heard a lot about it before my purchase, so I just had to get one of my own.

Here are my review notes:

Pros:

- Its extremely small size.
- It flies really well and the gyro did a good job keep it stable. It flys a lot better than my friend's Blade Nano QX with SAFE Technology did for me.
- It is very durable. I bounced it off the walls and crashing all over and it still flies like brand new even though it had been through some rough crashes.
- Flight time is a good 5-6 minutes depending on your flying style, which is great for something with so many bright lights like this.
- The lights really make this a winner in my book. It makes it way easier to see given its small size.

Cons:

- Tiny radio but decent enough for a thumb flyer like me. Not a selling point for a finger pincher.
- No Yaw or throttle trim. Mine didn't really need it, so that could by why they went that route.
- Only one flight mode - A pretty big con for me.
- The battery is built into the quad, so that limits the fun you can have with just one of them.
- Sloppy motor mounts, but doesn't seem to impact the flight at all

This Estes Proto X could be great RC heli quad trainer for a lot of people. For those of you who do not know, Estes is the company known worldwide for its Estes Rocket engines and other parts.
