This video features my buddy Tom flying his Tower Hobbies Millennium Master EP RC Plane. It is a nice little flyer as demonstrated by this fun flight for Bill and I. You can hear us both in the background throughout the flight.

Here is the outdoor FPV flight video I promised. The day was a little cloudy and dark, but it was still fun and turned out pretty well

This video is for my new RTF Syma X8C Venture HD Camera Drone Quadcopter. It contains an Unboxing, Build, Maiden Flight, and Review for this DJI Phantom drone clone.

Pros:
- It is fun!
- A good entry level camera quad (Not first quad)
- The props generate a LOT of thrust
- Nice and stable, even in tight spaces
- High and low rates
- A nice big battery for long flight times
- It comes a RTF RC Quad with everything you need.

Cons:
- It wasn't that fun to have to build it, but it wasn't all that bad.

This is a mostly wide angle flight video of my new UMX P-47 with the perfect battery for my plane.

That battery is a Babble Batt 2S 330 lipo

The Hawkeye II is my first FPV Quadcopter. The video review below includes an unboxing, maiden flight, indoor FPV flight, & review.

Here are the pros and cons so far for this RC Aircraft.

Pros:
- FPV ready out of the box
- It can do nice flips indoors
- Nice rubber jelly foot pegs
- Its size is a nicer size than my nano drones
- Large battery capacity for long flight times
- Clear FPV signal from the on board camera to my phone

Cons:
- The battery bay is trickier than it could be.
- It is a little touchy on the controls even in low rates for indoor flight

When the weather clears up around here I will be making an outdoor FPV video with this to get a better handle on its range.

This video features a nice flight with my buddy Bill flying the HobbyKing Durafly SkyMule Twin 1500mm RC Plane. His landing was on purpose, but it wasn't as gentle as he wanted

Enjoy!
