In this video I do an Unboxing, Indoor Maiden Flight, and Review of the JJRC H23 Flying Car Drone Quadcopter. I unbox it, drive it, fly it, and go over its pros and cons. I also compare it to my other RC Flying Car Drone, the Syma X9 Flying Car Quadcopter Drone.

Here are the review notes for this RC Drone Flying Car:

Pros:

- It has good speed in car mode compared to the Syma X9
- It looks really good
- It flies very well
- The lights are bright enough to fly in the dark
- The battery type is readily available

Cons:
- The flight mode switching is quirky after the initial bind

This is the Maiden Flite for the E-Flite Pawnee Brave Night Flyer 1.2M BNF Basic RC Plane With AS3X Technology. In this video I fly the plane around and even do a loop on a cloudy windy day. The combination of wind and further trimming being required made this plane not feel that great in the air. I do think with additional trimming that this will be a good flyer and even during the day, the lights were awesome!

Here are my preliminary review notes for this Crop Duster RC Plane:

Pros:
- The lights are amazing!
- It takes a 3S 2200 lipo
- It fits in my car, but just barely with the seats down
- It has a unique look

Cons:
- Even at the specified CG point and control surface recommendations, it did not fly level and smooth
- There were numerous defects out of the box including a bad battery bay cover, a pilot that wasn't glued in properly, and an uneven horizontal stabilizer.
