Here is the Maiden and Review of the UMX Habu! This is my most magical maiden to date due to the special guests that showed up to help me find my way through the sky

E-Flite UMX Habu 180 DF Ultra Micro BNF with AS3X Technology Maiden and Review With a Flock of Birds (7 min 24 sec)

Here are my Maiden and Review Notes:

- A little nose heavy even with the battery back
- A much higher top speed than the MiG
- Handles better at slow speeds than the MiG
- Performs loops well
- Better vertical performance than the MiG
- Some throttle is required on landings like the MiG

This is the second installment of this beauty of an RC plane flying at night on my channel. The Parkzone F4U Corsair night flyer is one cool looking and nice flying plane. This time we were prepared with tools to keep the blood suckers at bay!

This flight took place after my MiG maiden while there was enough daylight. I have to say that this thing still looks amazing in the air and flying it low and close to the camera is getting easier and easier.

I finally figured out the perfect place to maiden the MiG to see where else I could fly it. I am happy to report that there were no issues at all and my main flying spot should work just fine

Here is the raw and unedited flight of my UMX MiG-15:

Here is my final video to post from the Warbirds Over Whatcom event. It contains footage of a huge 1/4 scale 110' Piper Cub weighing in at 18 pounds.

It looks a lot like the one in the new Disney Movie. I know some think it is an Ag Tractor and might well be. I still think it looks just like this only with different paint.

Regardless, this flight is pretty well done in spite of my video work.

This was one of my favorite flights of the day at Warbirds Over Whatcom in Ferndale, Washington. This shows a very fast biplane ripping through the skies performing tricks and even dropping a bomb! I never knew a biplane could be used as a bomber. That bomb drop taught me a lot actually.

Enjoy the video!

Here is the unboxing of my "new" Mig-15. Hopefully this and the follow-up maiden video will help those that want it pull the trigger before it is too late:

This video contains footage of a large nitro powered T-28 Trojan RC plane at Warbirds Over Whatcom in Ferndale, Washington at Bel-Air RC Field. Of course this T-28 should not be mistaken for the Parkzone T-28 parkflyer RC airplane.

This was an exciting treat to see in person at the Warbirds Over Whatcom event at the end of July. This huge Spit has a reportedly 90" wingspan and is powered by a huge gas engine!

I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I did!

So this video was insane to see in person. In the first few seconds there is a crash, some great flying after and another crash at the end!
