JJRC H37 ELFIE Foldable Mini RC Selfie Drone Unboxing Review PT1 (8 min 8 sec)

Where to get one:

Fun folding drone, uses your phones Wifi to control it, removable lipo battery, flies very nice, does flips, fits in a pocket. Its advertised as a selfie drone, its really hard to get a good selfie, but it is possible to get picture and video of yourself!

It flies outdoors very well, I enjoyed its stability, plus is was easily manageable indoors as well. But this would be mostly an out door model in my opinion. Hope you enjoy the video!

that would make it alot easier to handle IMO if you wanted a selfie

bit more room

WLtoys L343 1/24 Electric Brushed 2WD RTR RC Monster Truck Review PT2 Running! (5 min 41 sec)

Where to get one:
RCMoment Website:

Here is a fun affordable rc truck! Small enough to drive in your house, fast and durable enough to enjoy outdoors. I was really impressed with its speed! In this video you will see it on the radar gun, yes, 25mph!

Steering and throttle are proportionate, which is always the best way to have it, reverse is pretty quick, the steering adjustment on the transmitter works great. Range is fantastic, I have crashed it a few times and it appears to be quite durable! Always a bonus. On a model this size you will get spring shocks, and on this one a live transaxle type rearend. They work great, but are a little bouncy on rough terrain.

Ill have a future update with an FPV system on it too!

- FAST! 25 MPH!
- Price
- Radio range
- Proportionate steering and throttle
- Steering trim on radio
- Long battery life
- USA adapter

- None for the price

LE NENG TOYS K5 CLIMBER MECHA RC Climbing Car Driving Review PT2 (5 min 36 sec)

Where to get one:

Check out this crazy mecha climber! Similar idea to the car I did recently (check out my vids), but this is one serious offroad/big obstacle machine. Stairs, curbs, speed bumps, rocks, doesnt matter, it just goes! Only things that will stop it, is spinning out, wrapping long grass around the wheels, and hooking the tail.

- Long run time
- Climbs almost anything!
- Easy to control
- Red eyes look cool
- Durable
- Fast
- Tail comes off easily for transporting if space is limited

- Not proportionate on the controls, on or off
- The tail sometimes got stuck on a rock, or while turning

The scorpion-like K5 CLIMBER MECHA has a robust body and an excellent climbing capability. Look! It is capable of coming out from the soil, withstanding the impact of the falling bricks, and going upstairs. It is such an invincible robot that can fall freely from a high platform. This incredible climbing car makes its way to wherever you want, thus, it will be a perfect companion for nearly any outdoor activity!

Main Features:
- Its reinforced plastic shell is impact-resistant, so it can deal with falling bricks and freely falling easily.
- Two rotatable lines of all-terrain wheels ensure its excellent climbing capability.
- 40 minutes' playing time is provided by the 9.6V...Continue Reading
