My friend John was testing out his new home built quadcopter at our flying field. He flew it super high, played a game of tug of war with it as he was experimenting with the onboard GPS with his new GoPro Hero 3 camera onboard the aircraft.

It amazed me at how well the GPS worked as he pulled on it. I could feel the prop wash from a pretty good distance away.

This video is an unboxing and review of the OES Pack Sentry Hyperion Battery Checker, which is used by me and many others as Lipo Battery Checker. I purchased this for $31 from Amazon.com.

In the video I discuss the features of it and provide a brief overview on battery maintenance. I also explain why one needs a lipo checker or voltage tester.

I don't have much for review notes since I have used my RC flying mentor's checker just like this for quite a while and have always wanted one. There is a knock-off version of this available on Hobby King, but it is ALWAYS sold out. In the years to come I hope to be happy with my battery tester choice.

This video was taken at Bell Air RC Flyers RC Field and includes a number of low passes and tons of tricks my friend John performed for the camera. He is smooth on the sticks and likes to show off.

Enjoy!

This 3D Flying Pilot RC YAK M55 100cc Fuel Powered RC Plane was an amazing sight to see in the air and on the ground. It is a 33% 107" YAK.

Of course, this isn't your average radio-controlled aircraft. It it is an amazing machine capable of fantastic 3D Flight.

This video is footage of FPV Flying with the Zebro 52 Flying Wing and Impressive Multiplex Cularis Glider viewed from ground. It is a nice and relaxing look at RC flight in a less than ordinary application.

I had never really given much thought to an RC glider until I recorded this recently. It could be fun to own one like this!

It is amazing how well this little plane flies in very strong winds. My friend being a very good pilot doesn't hurt either of course:

If you have never seen the Parkzone Wildcat fly in person, I hope this video does justice to just how well this plane flies. It is smooth flying and dynamic in the sky once the pilot is used to flying it:

I do not recommend anyone do what I did at the start of this video. Learn from my mistake:

Everything is still stock (except the battery) and it flies great after many crashes and 100's of flights:

This footage was taken out at the Bell-Air RC Field in Ferndale, Washington. My buddy John was working out some bugs with his real jet turbine engine before he took it to the skies the following day.
