The Black Sheep of the group Shawn joins Bill in the air with some fun passes by flying his E-flite Opterra Flying Wing along with Bill making some exciting overhead passes and a perfect landing with the Opterra 2M Wing BNF Basic with AS3X.

This is the unboxing only for the FEI LUN FX176C2 RTF GPS Drone With WiFi FPV. It is a very budget friendly RC Aircraft.

This is the Maiden Flight of my buddy Bill's new E-flite Carbon-Z Cessna 150 2.1m BNF Basic RC Plane. The plane is HUGE and flies really well. This E-flite Cessna 150 is attention grabbing when you are near it to say the least. It is also amazing that this is FOAM!

This is the Maiden Flight Review for the Freewing F-105 Thunderchief 64mm EDF Jet. It includes footage from two different cameras to give you the best experience possible on my first flight with this RC Jet.

As you will see, I didn't set my time short enough to land without crazy urgency. I also needed to trim my ailerons and reduce the Dual-Rates from 65% down to 58% to enjoy it in the air. The ailerons are very responsive with the stock setup, so I recommend adding Dual-Rates.

For those of you wondering about my battery, it was down at 2% when I checked it after it was on the ground. It is back up to a safe charge level, but I have adjusted my timing to 3 minutes down from 5 to avoid a similar issue in the future. I was flying with a nice new 1600 mAh battery, so I thought I would have had more flight time, but that wasn't the case.

This is the Unboxing & Review for the Lieber Birdy 1060 Mini FPV RC Drone. It is a great RTF Beginner FPV Drone with an FPV Monitor.

Lieber Birdy 1060 Mini FPV RC Drone Unboxing & Review - RTF Beginner FPV Drone With FPV Monitor (17 min 56 sec)

Here are my review notes for this RTF Beginner FPV Racing Drone:

Pros:
- Three well thought out flight modes
- Larger size than most Micro FPV Drones, but still small enough to have the same benefits.
- A very smooth flyer
- Long flight times of 5-6 minutes
- Comes with a quality 4.3" FPV Monitor
- The 600 TVL FPV Camera is high quality for this price point

Cons:
- The battery bay is a little too large for stock battery without slight mod is the only real con for this kit
