This video features one of the few electric planes and one of only two EDF jets flown while I was at the Warbirds Over Whatcom Fly-In event at Bell Air RC Club's Field in Ferndale, WA.

Please note that I was back in the crowd and this isn't a huge plane, so the view of Mount Baker and the Twin Sisters are probably the most impressive elements of the video, other than the take-off and especially the landing.

Enjoy!

This is the maiden of a buddy's nitro powered F4U Corsair. It was a fun site to take is as my other friend who is a master pilot put it through its paces including some great slow and fast low passes.

Enjoy!

This is the best video I have ever made IMO. It featured a HUGE version of what I thought was a gas powered RAF SE5 WWI Warbird, which turns out to be a Massive Sopwith Pup and some other unexpected events occur along the way

This is a video from the Saturday portion of the RC event I went to this weekend in Ferndale, WA. It provides a good close-up view of each of the warbirds and most of them are HUGE!

This video was taken at Bell Air RC Flyers RC Field the night before the Warbirds Over Whatcom event. It includes a number of low passes and nice flybys from this large yet agile aircraft. The pilot Brian performed a number of tricks, stunts, and acrobatics for the camera while discussing RC planes with me.

This is the Bellingham Flight Museum's A-1 Skyraider WWII Warbird flying over the biggest RC plane event of the year put on by Bell Air RC Flyers. It is called Warbirds over Whatcom. It takes place in Ferndale, Washington and is a great event at a beautiful RC flying field. There is a great view of Mount Baker and the Twin Sisters as the backdrop.

Also, if you pay attention, you can witness a giant sized SE5 fly low over the runway.

Enjoy!

Here is a video featuring the Parkzone Ultra Micro P-51 Mustang only this shows how easy it is to fly inverted with this plane:

This is a quick flight on a windy day at the field where I learned to play baseball to test my landing gear mod that was required after its second flight.

The screw hole that holds in the front landing gear got stripped as I landed it (pretty gently actually) on a paved runway. This is a test of using a slightly larger screw to secure it into place.

The flight was a scale flying success.

Enjoy!

This video captures the fun of flying RC planes with your friends. There are three Parkzone T-28 Parkflyers and one Parkzone Spitfire flying around in this video just as the sun in setting with Mount Baker as the backdrop.

Here is some 3D footage I shot of a friend flying a plane another friend of mine built.

It was amazing to see first-hand in person.

This is probably my worst camera work ever, but I had a good reason to be shaky lol

This is still a very fun and entertaining video however. It is worth the minute and a half watch according to my friends before I posted it up on here.

This Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer video review contains an unboxing, review, and sunset maiden flight to give the viewer and idea as to what to expect if they purchase this PNP (Plug-N-Play) RC model.

This RC Plane Park Flyer is brought to us by RC juggernaut Horizon Hobby. This is also considered by many to be the single best Parkflyer they have ever released under their Parkzone brand.

Making a special appearance in this video is a Parkzone Spitfire and another Parkzone T-28 Trojan without landing gear. Both were not expected but did add a little drama to spice up the video a bit. I also did a few rare stunts, tricks, and rolls on this maiden. John the cameraman did not expect this as you will note in his commentary.

Video Review:
Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer Unboxing, Review, and Sunset Maiden Flight (11 min 7 sec)


My review notes for the T-28 Trojan are as follows:

Pros:
- Easy build
- Flies really well
- Looks great
- Flies as well or better than my Parkzone F4F Wildcat

Cons:
- Throttle plug was a little short (no others)

Takeaway: BUY THIS PLANE! This maiden was its actual maiden and was flown 100% stock with the exception of flying with a Gforce 2200mAh lipo battery.

Hey guys!

I finally got to make another Wildcat video. I took this yesterday on the hottest day of the year so far. It also happened to be a bit windy as well, but that still didn't keep me from finally getting some inverted flight on video.

Enjoy!

I took this video last night and it turned out better than I had hoped. It makes me laugh and enjoy this lovely plane all at the same time. Best of all I got to spend it with my great girlfriend!
