Warbirds Over Whatcom should have been today, but was cancelled like everything else this year. Robert, the pilot here, is a great pilot and and even better man. Enjoy!

This is my E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m BNF Basic STOL RC Plane Sunset Flight. As you can see, I have a lot to learn about 3D flight and I will likely add the heavier metal rod to the tail on future flights to see if that helps reduce the snaps to the side I was dealing with during this flight.

This is my E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m BNF Basic Unboxing & Review, which includes footage of it in complete darkness.

E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m BNF Basic Unboxing & Review (10 min 40 sec)

Pros:
- Lights lights lights! They are stunning and will make a great E-flite Night Flyer!
- Parts and pieces are protected by plastic bags.
- A good color scheme.
- The landing gear it big and has nice suspension
- It has optional SAFE Select that I decided NOT to setup for now.
- The build & radio setup are not too bad.
- Big throws on the control surfaces for 3D flight
- Smart equipment features (Sorry I didn't cover them, I need more time for that)

Cons:
- Small dents on top of the fuse
- The wiring by the main wing was wrapped around the servo so badly that I had to take things apart to reroute it.
- Collets for prop installation adds another possible failure point and is a very questionable choice on a plane like this that is marketed to hang by its prop.
- The battery bay being on the bottom of the plane is just plain silly in 2020. That is all I am going to say about that.

Review Notes for this Arrows Viper EDF Jet:

- Powerful 50mm EDF unit
- Three plastic skids on the bottom
- It handles very similarly to the E-flite Viper Jet

Cons:
- I prefer all screws to any glue, but it wasn’t bad overall.

This is my Second Flight with the E-flite UMX Citation Longitude Twin 30mm EDF BNF Basic.

E-flite UMX Citation Longitude Twin 30mm EDF BNF Basic Second Flight (5 min 0 sec)

Here are my Review Notes for this E-flite UM EDF Citation Jet:

Pros:
- Lots of lights all over it
- 3S Brushless Twin 30mm EDF's
- Chromed out plastic on the EDF inlets
- Plastic bits on the wingtips
- I will use it as a nice warm-up jet, perfect to slide into my car on the days I fly big jets like the E-flite Su-30 EDF Jet.

Cons:
- Dented foam on the main wing
- One of the mains was bent out of the box, but easily fixable
- Some glue leaked onto the silver part of the chromed out plastic on the EDF inlets
