This is an Unboxing, Build, Review, and Maiden Flight video for the WL Toys Cessna - 182 RC Plane. I reviewed this because of its price point and that a few of my subscribers were wondering if it was a decent low priced alternative to the legendary Hobbyzone Champ.

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Long flight times
- Plenty of power
- The radio is very good for a ready to fly - RTF RC Plane
- Does nice loops

Cons:
- This is not a hobby grade RC Trainer Plane
- The CG is a challenge to get dialed in since the battery bay limits adjustments

This is the ECX Outburst 1/14 Scale RC Motorcycle Unboxing, Run, & Review. It shows me unbox it while I talk about the bike and its parts and pieces, you get to see me driving it outside on a bright and beautiful day, and I give you my final review notes at the end. Of course, that last part comes after you get to see the bloopers.

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Long run time
- Front and rear suspension
- Front and rear lights
- 2.4 GHz Radio

Cons:
- Slower speed then expected
- Integrated battery
- No upgrade options

Here is my unboxing, run, and review for this:

This video is the Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review for the new 2S BL E-flite UMX P-47 Thunderbolt with AS3X Technology. This is essentially the UMX version of the the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, parkflyer with different paint and no flaps or retracts.

Here are my review notes:

Cons:

- A big black mark on the nose of the plane fresh out of the box
- Not a good plane in the wind
- Tail heavy out of the box

Pros:

- Beautiful finish and scale look
- 4-bladed prop
- 2S Brushless motor
_ AS3X Technology
- Large and durable landing gear

This video is the Unboxing Only for the new 2S E-flite UMX P-47 Thunderbolt WWII Warbird BNF Basic with AS3X Technology. This is essentially the UMX version of the the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, parkflyer with different paint.

In the video I compare it to the parkflyer version of I mentioned above as well as the Parkzone UMX P-51, which was the first P-51 mustang with AS3X. The second and first park flyer with it was the E-flite P-51 Mustang, also know as the "Dallas Doll".

Here are my review notes on it so far:

Cons:

- A big black mark on the nose of the plane fresh out of the box

Pros:

- Beautiful finish and scale look
- 4-bladed prop
- 2S Brushless motor
_ AS3X Technology
- Large and durable looking landing gear
