This is the Maiden Flight for my new HSD Zero Fighter 1100MM Japanese WWII Warbird. Normally I post the unboxing and review video first, but this footage with my new camera turned out so nicely aside from my REALLY poor crosswind landing that I couldn't wait!

Unboxing Only - HSD Zero Fighter 1100MM RC Plane Japanese WWII Warbird (13 min 50 sec)

Review Notes:

Pros:
- Beautiful! It is as attractive as any of my other more expensive planes
- Scale flaps and retracts
- Rubber tires
- Only used 30% of the 4000mAh battery on the maiden flight

Cons:
- Not beginner friendly. I had to make a lot of modifications to make it perform like you see in the video.
- Elevator has some slop left to right, but still seems to fly fine

This is the Follow Me & GPS Test for the Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone Quadcopter Advanced Version.

Follow Me & GPS Test - Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone With 1080p HD Camera (8 min 3 sec)

It has a 1080p HD Camera that performs well in well lit conditions, I demonstrate the Follow Me function, and I test the GPS function in some choppy wind.

The camera is way better than the one that comes with the Hubsan H502S X4 Desire GPS FPV Drone and is pretty close for its size to the quality of the Hubsan X4 Pro H109S GPS FPV Drone HD Camera.

This Unboxing and Review is for the Red, Green, & White Wireless Navigation Light Kit I got from Banggood.com.

Unboxing & Review - Red, Green, & White Wireless Navigation Light Kit (4 min 11 sec)

Here are my LED Light Kit review notes:

Pros:
- The lights are very bright and should be good for night flying
- Easy to use
- Very simple to install
- Three settings
- Wireless

Cons:
- Not all items needed to charge the lights comes with the kit
- There is not a steady "on" setting

As you can see in the video, I installed the lights on my Parkzone Sport Cub. The lights should go on may other models with no issues as well, so as the E-Flite T-28 Trojan, Eleven Hobbies T-28 Trojan, and any other parkflyer you want to put them on!

This video footage was taken at the 2016 Warbirds Over Whatcom RC Warbird Event. The video subject is a 1/5 scale FW-190 RC Plane. It is a Top Flite Giant Scale Focke Wulf FW-190 WWII RC Plane and it flies very nicely!

This is the Maiden Flight & Camera Test for the Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone Quadcopter Advanced Version.

It has a 1080p HD Camera that I test thoroughly in a variety of lighting conditions that really pushed it to its limits. I test the GPS function, fly it fairly high, and use the Return to Home Function twice.

Review Notes for the Hubsan H501S Advanced Edition:

Pros:
- Easy to set-up and fly
- Smooth fun flight characteristics
- GPS mode
- Follow Me function
- 1080p HD Camera

Cons:
- Eats radio batteries very quickly
- On board video could be a little better quality but it is still light years ahead of the H502S X4 Desire

This is the Unboxing and Overview for the Hubsan H501S X4 FPV Drone Advanced Version with an 1080p HD Camera. I unbox it, go over the quadcopter, its radio, and even do a quick little indoor maiden test flight. I also compare it to my Hubsan H502S X4 Desire GPS FPV Drone and Hubsan X4 Pro H109S GPS FPV Drone.
