This is my Unboxing Only for the Sonic Modell Carbon Fiber Racing Wing. This is great size FPV Wing at 1030m and I appreciate its versatility.

This is my Unboxing, Maiden Run, and Review for the 26MPH GPToys Flame Peace S916 Off Road RC Truck.

26MPH GPToys Flame Peace S916 Off-Road RC Truck Unboxing, Maiden Run, and Review (13 min 5 sec)

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- This version handles way better than my GPToys Fox S911 on all surfaces, especially on pavement.
- The drive time is exceptional! I drove it for well over 15 minutes and it still had plenty of power! I don't recommend doing that though, since it is rated to run under 10 minutes per charge.
- I believe it can go around 26MPH
- It looks great with the color and drivers give it a nice touch.
- There is a nice location to mount a GoPro or a action cam of some sort on it to get fun onboard footage.
- The canopy hinges up for access to the battery bay. It makes it so you can't accidentally step on the canopy and ruin it.
- It is a good size at 1/12 scale.

Cons:
- The plug change is a definite con for me since I have two other batteries I should have been able to use in it.
- I would like to see this design get upgraded to 4WD on the next release instead of it being 2WD.
- The off on switch is buried deeper than I would prefer.

This video is the Outdoor Maiden Flight with the AOSENMA CG035 GPS WIFI FPV RC Drone Quadcopter With 1080P HD Camera. It shows an Outdoor Maiden Flight and some basic functions, such as the GPS Mode and Altitude Hold.

Outdoor Maiden Flight - AOSENMA CG035 Double GPS Optical Positioning WIFI FPV With 1080P HD Camera (4 min 8 sec)

Review Notes:

Pros:
- Long flight times
- Handles wind well
- The GPS is locked in along with the altitude hold while in GPS Mode
- Props are crash resistant, even without prop guards
- The looks very cool
- It comes with a 1080p HD Camera
- The app has many functions, but I did not try them out on this flight due to time constraints. It was good to just get it up in the air and fly it though.

Cons:
- It had some shakes in the air, but was most likely due to loose prop nut.
- I lost a prop nut after a hard landing off-camera, so make sure yours are very well secured. I thought mine were on tight, but they weren't.

This the Outdoor Maiden Flight with my RTF Syma X21 Beginner Drone Quadcopter. It is a great platform for a beginner to learn to fly. The best part is, it is very inexpensive for what you get!

In this video I start the video off by using the automatic take-off feature, fly the RC Drone outside in the two flight modes, demonstrate how well the altitude hold works, and perform a couple of flips before I safely land it.

Here are my review notes for this RC Micro Drone:

Pros:
- An ideal beginner drone
- It flies super smooth with great control, even outside in wind!
- The flight time are long. I flew for over 7 minutes on a single charge.
- Quick tight flips without loosing altitude
- The color is a beautiful rich red
- Nice bright lights
- Rubber landing pads
- Altitude hold
- Long flight times

Cons:
- The odd blemish on the chassis of the quad is the only con and not something I would expect anyone else to have appear on theirs.

This is a Test Flight with the Enfan 3S 1500 45C Lipo battery in the Freewing Lippisch P.15 64mm EDF Jet. I flew it with mixed throttle most of the flight. I also did a couple tricks, including a roll and my very first loop with this plane.

This is FPV Footage of the Blade F-27 FPV UMX also know as the UMX Stryker FPV Flying Wing.

In this video I do an intro and outro at my flying location talking about my FPV setup and the RC Plane. Most of the video features unedited onboard FPV footage with music. The footage was recorded with my Fatshark Dominator V3 FPV Goggles.

This is my buddy Bill's E-flite X-VERT VTOL RTF Demo Flight. This is a very unique RC Aircraft that has been on my radar for a while, but I haven't pulled the trigger. Bill made it so I didn't have to and put on a show for us in this video.
