This is the Maiden Flight for my new HSD Zero Fighter 1100MM Japanese WWII Warbird. Normally I post the unboxing and review video first, but this footage with my new camera turned out so nicely aside from my REALLY poor crosswind landing that I couldn't wait!

Maiden Flight - HSD Zero Fighter 1100MM RC Plane Japanese WWII Warbird (3 min 34 sec)

Review Notes:

Pros:
- Beautiful! It is as attractive as any of my other more expensive planes
- Scale flaps and retracts
- Rubber tires
- Only used 30% of the 4000mAh battery on the maiden flight

Cons:
- Not beginner friendly. I had to make a lot of modifications to make it perform like you see in the video.
- Elevator has some slop left to right, but still seems to fly fine

This is the Follow Me & GPS Test for the Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone Quadcopter Advanced Version.

Follow Me & GPS Test - Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone With 1080p HD Camera (8 min 3 sec)

It has a 1080p HD Camera that performs well in well lit conditions, I demonstrate the Follow Me function, and I test the GPS function in some choppy wind.

The camera is way better than the one that comes with the Hubsan H502S X4 Desire GPS FPV Drone and is pretty close for its size to the quality of the Hubsan X4 Pro H109S GPS FPV Drone HD Camera.

This Unboxing and Review is for the Red, Green, & White Wireless Navigation Light Kit I got from Banggood.com.

Unboxing & Review - Red, Green, & White Wireless Navigation Light Kit (4 min 11 sec)

Here are my LED Light Kit review notes:

Pros:
- The lights are very bright and should be good for night flying
- Easy to use
- Very simple to install
- Three settings
- Wireless

Cons:
- Not all items needed to charge the lights comes with the kit
- There is not a steady "on" setting

As you can see in the video, I installed the lights on my Parkzone Sport Cub. The lights should go on may other models with no issues as well, so as the E-Flite T-28 Trojan, Eleven Hobbies T-28 Trojan, and any other parkflyer you want to put them on!

This is the Maiden Flight & Camera Test for the Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone Quadcopter Advanced Version.

It has a 1080p HD Camera that I test thoroughly in a variety of lighting conditions that really pushed it to its limits. I test the GPS function, fly it fairly high, and use the Return to Home Function twice.

This is the Maiden Outdoor Flight with my new Syma X8HG HD Camera Drone with Altitude Hold.

Maiden Outdoor Flight - Syma X8HG HD Camera Drone with Altitude Hold (4 min 18 sec)

This Camera Drone is very similar to my Syma X8C Venture Drone Quadcopter, only it looks better and comes with a way better camera. A GoPro will even fit in its camera holder (Look for future videos with it below this quadcopter).

Here are my review notes for this multirotor beast!

Pros:
- Very stable flight
- Altitude hold works well
- Beautiful dark red color
- High quality 8MP and very light weight HD GoPro like camera
- Anti-vibration camera mount
- 2S battery power
- Excellent lights

Cons:
- Loud brushed motors
- Slow yaw rate

This is my Maiden Flight and GPS Test for the new Hubsan X4 Pro H109S Real Time FPV Drone with GPS in some strong wind!

Maiden Flight & GPS Test - Hubsan X4 Pro H109S Real Time FPV Drone with GPS (6 min 17 sec)

I was very impressed with how well it flew and I experienced no issues the altitude hold or GPS I tested. I also took it up really high to test its range and I experienced no issues there The only problem I had was not turning on the record feature on the camera to capture what I saw when I took it way up in the sky.

When I compare its flight characteristics to that of my Blade 350 QX3, i put this one on par or better than that quadcopter. It is just more solid in the air and to the touch. It also is bigger with beter quality parts and has an FPV HD Camera.
