This was a fun evening flight without me on the sticks. This time I was behind camera while a flying buddy was the one taking command of the unstable air with his Parkzone T-28 Trojan.

This is a sunset flight and RC Plane Crash with the new E-Flite UMX Pitts S-1S BNF Basic with AS3X Technology. You will see exactly what happened when you watch the video, but before that happens you will get to see a lovely flight just as the sun is beginning to set.

This is the third flight with my new Parkzone FW-190 WWII RC Warbird. I take-off and land off of grass in the wind. After my first two flights went so well with this plane (both were caught on video), I waited to fly it again when I had someone there to video my next flight just in case things took a turn for the worst.

My landing wasn't exactly perfect like the one on my second flight, but all in all I am pretty happy with how everything went.

Watch and let me know what you think:

This is the unboxing, maiden flight, and review of the new E-Flite UMX Pitts S-1S BNF Basic with AS3X Technology. It is the opposite in that regard compared to my E-Flite UMX Radian RC Glider which comes with everything you need except the radio.

Here are my Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review Notes for the Pitts:

Cons:
- I couldn't find any (It is seriously a great plane!)

Pros:
- A stout little plane
- Much faster than expected
- Handles wind better than expected
- Very FUN to fly even in wind

Verdict: This is worth the inflated price Horizon Hobby charges for its planes.

This is an HD video of an RC jet airplane flight with a real jet turbine engine.

The video starts with my buddy John is starting up his real jet turbine engine before he takes it to the skies to tear them up!

It is simply amazing to see and hear how impressive this kind of technology is in application. An RC Jet with a real jet turbine is crazy. You have to be pretty skilled and crazy to buy a jet with an RC Jet turbine engine.

Good thing John is crazy!

This Parkzone F4U-1A Corsair video contains a couple of take-offs, some scale flight, tricks, and one of my best landings ever caught on video with this plane.

It was just one of the highlights of spending the summer evening with my buddy John!

My flying buddy and I recorded this after some fun at the flying field he just joined. He thought my jet could do it, but I wasn't sure since the tires, though rubber are pretty small.

Watch the quick video to see what happened:
