This is my E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m BNF Basic Unboxing & Review, which includes footage of it in complete darkness.

E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m BNF Basic Unboxing & Review (10 min 40 sec)

Pros:
- Lights lights lights! They are stunning and will make a great E-flite Night Flyer!
- Parts and pieces are protected by plastic bags.
- A good color scheme.
- The landing gear it big and has nice suspension
- It has optional SAFE Select that I decided NOT to setup for now.
- The build & radio setup are not too bad.
- Big throws on the control surfaces for 3D flight
- Smart equipment features (Sorry I didn't cover them, I need more time for that)

Cons:
- Small dents on top of the fuse
- The wiring by the main wing was wrapped around the servo so badly that I had to take things apart to reroute it.
- Collets for prop installation adds another possible failure point and is a very questionable choice on a plane like this that is marketed to hang by its prop.
- The battery bay being on the bottom of the plane is just plain silly in 2020. That is all I am going to say about that.

This is my Arrows RC Viper 50mm EDF Jet Maiden Flight Review.

Arrows RC Viper 50mm EDF Jet Maiden Flight Review (5 min 30 sec)

Review Notes for this Arrows Viper EDF Jet:

Pros:
- Looks great
- Plastic nose cone for durability
- Grips for easy hand tossing
- Fantastic value price, check links in the description!
- Powerful 50mm EDF unit
- Three plastic skids on the bottom
- It handles very similarly to the E-flite Viper Jet
- Designed for 3S packs so you can get a lot of packs for hours of fun without breaking the bank.

Cons:
- I prefer all screws to any glue, but it wasn’t bad overall.
