This is some footage taken recently of my P-51 Mustang from E-flite crusing through the sky with everything looking pretty darn scale!

I consider this to be the best Ultra Micro RC Plane ever made. This video shows me having fun with my Parkzone UM T-28 Trojan doing some tricks, stunts, and scale flight with this Parkzone T-28 of the small variety.

John my flying mentor did a great job capturing the essence of how much fun we have making videos with our RC Planes.

Enjoy!

This is the second flight with my UMX B-17 after some elevator trimming took place with the plane. It still isn't perfect, but I plan to do more dialing in with this plane until the weather improves anyway.

This video contains the Unboxing, Near Crash Maiden Flight, and Review of the E-flite UMX B-17G Flying Fortress WWII Bomber with AS3X Technology.

I literally open up the box and describe what I see, like, and dislike about the planes. I also demonstrate a number of things as well, but of course you have to watch the video to see and hear it all.

Not only that, I included an exciting Maiden Flight. I expected to fly a slow scale plane and have it be a relatively boring experience. Well, that wasn't the case at all! Right after take-off there was a near crash and I will let you watch the video to see the rest.

Here is a summary of the review notes from the video:

Cons
- Very thin rudder
- Brushed motors
- Not much power
- Very out of trim elevator
- Hard to install landing gear

Pros
- Nice details
- 4 motors with scale props
- Fits in box for easy storage and transport

This is the complete unboxing, maiden and review:

Note: This is only an unboxing and review video as the weather is too poor to get in a maiden at this point. I hope to change that very soon however!

With the rainy weather expected for the next few days, I decided to edit some video tonight of the fun I had with my UMX Pitts this past Sunday.

Here is a short video of me landing on video for the very first time on pavement with that plane. I have landed many times on pavement off camera, but this is the first flight on camera. The only other landings to date I have on record are grass landings, including crash landings into grass

I was able to get out and fly my new E-Flite P-51 Mustang today after not being able to fly since the maiden. In many ways it felt like the maiden all over again as you can see by how poorly done my take-off was. It was still a great flight and I still have the grin on my face

Here is another fun video with my flying mentor John showing us what his J-Power P-38 Lightning WWII Warbird RC Plane can do.

In this video you will see nice low slow passes along with various tricks and additional surprises with this P-38 Parkflyer.

This is my FIRST flight caught on video with this plane of me NOT crashing it lol

I got it from a co-worker that had the ACT System hooked up to the receiver and boy did that dog not hunt! I knew pretty quickly why it was just given to me in pieces.
