This is the unboxing and review of the WSX-F01 HD FPV Goggles I just got.

WSX-F01 HD FPV Goggles Unboxing and Review (9 min 0 sec)

These dual antenna FPV Goggles pair really nicely with my new Tiny Whoop Clone. Together they are only about $100 for a user friendly and fun indoor setup perfect for getting used to FPV Flight.

Here is the link to the Tiny Whoop Clone's video:

This is the Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review for the Tiny Whoop Clone - NIHUI NH-010 Micro FPV Racing Drone.

Tiny Whoop Clone - NIHUI NH-010 Micro FPV Racing Drone Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review (11 min 56 sec)

In the video I compare it directly to the Blade Inductrix and I show it next to the JJRC H36 as well. I also fly it in my place with FPV. The only other quadcopter I have tried that with is the Blade Nano QX2 FPV. This one seems to handle bouncing off the walls and crashing much better without damaging props.

It pairs really well with the WSX-F01 dual antenna FPV Goggles I got with it. See that video below:

This is my Unboxing, Indoor Maiden Flight, and Review for the GoPro Ready MJX Bugs 3 Brushless Drone Quadcopter.

GoPro Ready - MJX Bugs 3 Brushless Drone Quadcopter Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review (11 min 43 sec)

Here are the pros and cons for this RC Drone Review:

Pros:
- It looks really cool
- It has a long flight time
- It is really nice to fly in small spaces
- Its price for what you get is very impressive since it is a Brushless RC Drone for a little over $100

Cons:
- The GoPro holder needs some modification to work ideally.
- The process to turn it on isn't that user friendly.
- The propriety battery could be a con.

This is as close to a maiden flight as I have for the the brand new E-flite UMX A-10 Warthog EDF Jet BNF Basic with AS3X.

Flight Video Only - E-flite UMX A-10 Warthog EDF Jet BNF Basic (2 min 15 sec)

Here are my pros and cons for this UMX A-10 EDF Jet:

Pros:
- It looks incredibly scale
- Twin 28mm Ducted Fans with 13,500Kv Brushless Motors
- 4-Channel control
- Top mounted magnetic hatch battery bay

Cons:
- Pathetically weak front landing gear
- Has a very tough time binding properly
- The fans sound off
- Customary UMX foam dents
- Very smelly foam like always with Horizon Hobby UMX planes
- The thing will not bind very easy and keeping a bind is also a challenge.

This RC Plane Crash Landing video featuring a Giant Scale Spitfire WWII Warbird took place at Warbirds Over Whatcom last July. My girlfriend and I were enjoying our exciting local Warbird Event when this happened.

In this video I unbox it, drive it outside, and review it as I go through the everything.

Unboxing, Maiden Run, and Review Of The 1/14 Scale Eachine RatingKing 4x4 RTR FPV Buggy (16 min 42 sec)

Here is a list of my review notes for this RC Buggy:

Pros:
- A very nice FPV experience
- The acceleration was much better than I expected
- The runtime on the 1500 mAh battery is nice and long
- The open cage design made it easier to use
- It has 4WD and nothing slowed it down
- It is really fun!

Cons:
- The wheel alignment wasn't great out of the box
- The reverse system is kind of awkward
- The action cam did not work consistently or footage would have been included in this video

This is a quick Sunset Maiden Flight with my new E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane with AS3X.

It was a bit windy and the sun was pretty low, but it flew quite well and I am very happy with my first time taking it out. It was all caught on camera by my GF too!

Here is the UMX Wildcat Maiden Flight Video!

Sunset Maiden Flight - E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane With AS3X (1 min 51 sec)

Pros:
- It flew very well in some fairly rough air
- Ailerons rolls were tight and very easy
- It has landing gear and can be belly landed
- Other than the defects on the main wing, it is a nicely finished plane
- It has a powerful 3,000kv 2S brushless motor
- The battery bay is large and provides easy access to this area

Cons:
- The landing gear is really narrow like the scale Cat and makes keeping it on its wheels during landings very difficult
- Mine had a lot of marks and a big ding all over the main wing making an otherwise beautiful plane look ugly.
- The elevator design is flawed causing tuning to make it ready for its maiden flight
