This is footage I captured of my friend Robert's new 1700mm FMS F7F Tigercat Bad Kitty RC Plane At Warbirds Over Whatcom. He added a nice finish to make it look even more scale and wow is it a nice RC Plane!

This is footage of a beautiful Freewing F-4 Phantom II 90mm EDF Jet at Warbirds Over Whatcom with full ordinance off grass. He flew beautifully and slow enough that it was easy to capture this plane like I did.

Bill is really starting to get the hang of flying his E-flite Ultimate 2. It is impressive how responsive this 3D Aerobatic RC biplane BNF Basic RC plane with SAFE can be. This was his third flight and he just keeps getting better with this E-flite Biplane.

My FeiLun FT011 4S Racing Boat boat is pretty darn durable and a heck of a lot of fun with your buddies and their boats too! Those include another boat just like mine, the Pro Boat Blackjack 24 Catamaran, and the Skytech H100 RC Boat.

This is my LOS Maiden Flight with the super fun Sonic Modell Carbon Fiber Racing Wing. This is a great size for an FPV Wing at 1030m. It is versatile and I am still in awe of how well it flew. It made me happy inside to fly it and it was pure joy to carve up the sky with it at 7AM!

LOS Maiden Flight - Sonic Modell Carbon Fiber Racing Wing - 1030mm FPV Wing (5 min 14 sec)

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Its size is just about perfect
- The price makes it a great value
- It is very fast as I didn't even give it full throttle the entire flight
- The wide flight envelope makes it a fun flyer
- It has a nice glide slope
- This wing was designed to carry FPV gear
- The battery efficiency is exceptional
- It looks amazing carving up the sky

Cons:
- I wish it had a little room for more FPV gear as any install will be a fairly tight fit.

This is the Unboxing & Overview video for the Brand New Durafly Supermarine Seafire MkIIB 1100mm WWII RC Warbird From HobbyKing.

In this video I unbox the plane, go over the parts and pieces, give you some build tips, show you the flaps & retracts, and go over the pros and cons.

Unboxing & Overview - Durafly Supermarine Seafire MkIIB 1100mm WWII RC Warbird From HobbyKing (14 min 42 sec)

Here are my review notes for this Durafly Supermarine Spitfire variant:

Pros:
- A cool concept version on a classic WWII Warbird with tons of scale accessories that comes with three different scheme options.
- It is a great size for easy transport and still large enough to have a bigger plane feel to it.
- Scale flaps
- Retracts with rubber tires
- Nice bright LED lights
- A solid 3 bladed prop
- Ball link servo connectors
- It is quick and easy to adjust the tailwheel with provided tool

Cons:
- The stickers can be a little tricky to apply until you get the hang of it
- If you aren't familiar with now the servo connectors work, it can be a little confusing. After you get a feel for them, it seems second nature.

Like I mentioned in the video, please feel free to ask me any questions you may have and I will do my best to walk you through it.

This is Bomb Drop Chaos from last year's Warbirds Over Whatcom event. The next one is coming up July 21-21, so join the fun if you can at Bell Air R/C Flyers Club in Ferndale, WA!

I have been making videos at this event for the past several years and it is always a lot of fun to get out and see the RC Warbirds of all kinds do their thing.

In this video you will see primarily WWI Warbirds buzzing the target and dropping bombs. My favorite is the Curtiss P-6E Hawk Biplane.

In this video you'll see Bill continue to get used to his new E-flite Ultimate 2 3D Aerobatic RC biplane BNF Basic RC plane with SAFE. This was his second flight and he had a pretty good flight.
