This is my Avios Spitfire Mk Vb Super Scale 1450mm RC Warbird Unboxing & Build. This is the newest plane from HobbyKing and it is a highly detailed RC Plane version of the Supermarine Spitfire Mk5.

Here are my review notes:

- Big and beautiful with tons of scale detail
- Lots of bright lights
- Scale split flaps
- The huge motor that runs on 3300 to 4000mAh 6S power
- Pan and tilt FPV hardware is included
- The sliding canopy and scale door is the ultimate in scale detail
- Ball link servo connectors
- Hidden control surfaces for a more scale look

Cons:
- I don't have any cons currently, but I will update this after I fly it and note any I come across.

This is the second flight with my new E-flite UMX Cirrus SR22T BNF Basic RC Plane with AS3X and SAFE Select.

In this video, I test SAFE with some close passes, rip around performing loops & rolls, and demonstrate low voltage cut-off (LVC) at the end with my best landing to date with this plane.

This is my Maiden Flight Review for the new E-flite UMX Cirrus SR22T BNF Basic RC Plane with AS3X and SAFE Select.

E-flite UMX Cirrus SR22T BNF Basic with SAFE Select Maiden Flight (5 min 22 sec)

In this video I go through my maiden flight with commentary and nice tight shots of this UMX RC Plane in the air. I even do a number of rolls and loops to keep things entertaining.

Here are my review notes for this Ultra Micro E-flite Cirrus SR22T:

Pros:
- The looks and scale details overall are well done
- This Ultra Micro Cirrus SR22T has nice bright lights
- A powerful 3600kv 2S Brushless motor
- It comes with a scale three bladed prop
- Carbon fiber spars running through the main wing and horizontal stabilizer
- It has a nice canopy with windows for FPV Flight
- The landing gear is removable for belly landing, but I would not recommend it with this three-bladed prop

Cons:
- The scrape on nose is hard to miss and overlook
- The sloppy nose wheel impacts take-offs much like the E-flite UMX A-10 Warthog. Its ground handling is good enough for now, but I am not sure for how long.
- It would be nice to have servo protectors on the aileron servos

This is the second flight with my ZOHD Dart XL Extreme FPV Wing. The footage was the full flight unedited taken with my Runcam 2 Onboard. Every time I look at it I think to myself that this Dart XL FPV Flying Wing flies great and looks like something out of Star Wars!

In this video you will see me hand launch it for the first time with ease from three different camera angles. You will also see what it is like to ride on board for the entire flight with shadows mixed with bright sunlight while I perform aileron rolls and loops.
