Eachine Mini F4U Corsair RTF Warbird with Gyro - Review Part 3

This is another Great Micro Warbird from Eachine and well worth the money in my opinion.
It is a bit Nose Heavy out of the box but .75g of Tail Weight and it balances perfectly.
I think this Plane is a bit faster than the P51D and not quite as stable due to the Gull Wings.
It has a very Wide Flight Envelope but flying too slow will cause a Wing to Dip.
I like the weight of the 1S 360mah LIPO rather than the 1S 400mah LIPO in this Plane.
I need a bit more Elevator and Rudder Movement so I'll adjust the Linkage and Test it out again.
Part 4 of this Review will be Testing the Adjustments and then I'll state my Conclusion on this Warbird ;-)

I've been waiting and waiting for this Eachine Mini F4U Corsair to arrive and now it's time to Review this Micro Warbird.
I noticed the LIPOs for this Plane are not the 1S 360mah LIPOs that came with the Eachine Mini P51D, these are 1S 400mah LIPOs.
I'll test this Plane with the 1S 360mah, and 1S 380mah LIPOs as well as I found they work just fine in the Eachine Mini P51D.
Stay tuned and we'll see how this Eachine Mini F4U Performs in the air ;-)

Time to blow the Dust Off of this Converted RC Chuck Glider ;-)
Well, I'm glad I took this Converted Chuck Glider with me to the Field as I'll fly it in any Wind ;-)
The Wind Forecast was for 3mph (5kph) and the Wind was actually 6-11mph (10-18kph).
This Converted Chuck Glider handles it just fine ;-)
I'll have to take it out sometime when I have 15-20mph (24-32kph) wind to see how this Glider, which has no Gyro, can handle that ;-)

Review Part 4 - MinimumRC Micro Spitfire Warbird BNF Kit Test Flights, Review Conclusion, & Setup

MinimumRC Planes:

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIe9x98p7jg

I love these Micro / Nano Planes from MinimumRC!
This is the third Plane from MinimumRC I have reviewed thus far and this BNF Kit is courtesy of MinimumRC.
These Planes are so small and light they make great Planes for flying outdoors in smaller areas and for flying indoors during the Winter or when the weather won't permit flying outdoors.
I think MinimumRC is doing some very good things in the design of these Planes and they also have a great inventory of electronics for your own Micro / Nano Plane projects.
The Builds are pretty simple and the downloadable Build Manual really makes it easy.
If you've never checked out MinimumRC you should take a look @ https://www.minimumrc.com/

This is the final video in the Review of the MinimumRC Micro Spitfire!
I wanted to get in a couple more flights on this Plane and then give you my Conclusion and Setup for a Successful Maiden Flight ;-)

Here is a link to the PDF File with the Setup I used for this Micro Spitfire:

Review Part 3 - MinimumRC Micro Spitfire Warbird BNF Kit New Servo & CG Test Flights

MinimumRC Planes:

I love these Micro / Nano Planes from MinimumRC!
This is the third Plane from MinimumRC I have reviewed thus far and this BNF Kit is courtesy of MinimumRC.
These Planes are so small and light they make great Planes for flying outdoors in smaller areas and for flying indoors during the Winter or when the weather won't permit flying outdoors.
I think MinimumRC is doing some very good things in the design of these Planes and they also have a great inventory of electronics for your own Micro / Nano Plane projects.
The Builds are pretty simple and the downloadable Build Manual really makes it easy.
If you've never checked out MinimumRC you should take a look @ https://www.minimumrc.com/

I compared the full movement of the Aileron Servo with another Micro Servo I had in my inventory and found it was only moving half the distance it should.
So, certain that the Aileron Servo is bad, I relaced it and now I'm going to test out the Roll Rate again and also test some CG adjustments to see what feels best with my Flying Style ;-)

Here are links to the Kits, Associated Electronics, and other Needful Things.

Test Flight - Yak54 Aerobat EPP 800mm Wingspan 3D Plane - Landing Gear MOD #2 ;-)

Well, the 2nd Landing Gear MOD worked out extremely well ;-)
I put 6 LIPOs through the Plane and wanted to put 4 more through it but the Bugs ran me out!
I pretty much took a bath in Deet every other flight as less frequently than that the Bugs were feasting on me again.
This Plane is Awesome! Now I just need some Calmer Wind so I can practice Hovering, and fewer Bugs ;-)

Test Flight - Volantex V765-2 Super Cub 750mm PNF - Aileron & Elevator Adjustment

This was one of my first Traditional Planes and is still one of my Favorites ;-)
It has plenty of power with the 2S Power System, it's very durable, and very fun to fly.
I adjusted the Aileron and Elevator linkage to get a bit more Control Surface Deflection to give me some Elevator in Reserve and Increase the Roll Rate.
It worked out very well and didn't need any Trimming ;-)
