This video features the Parkzone F4U-1A Corsair rough field landing gear in a review and maiden flight with the new landing gear.

Parkzone F4U-1A Corsair Rough Field Landing Gear Review and Maiden with Take-offs and Landings (7 min 59 sec)


My review notes focus on the landing gear and for the F4U-1A Corsair Parkzone, which is the newest Parkzone F4U Corsair:

Cons:
- Not very scale
- A bit bouncier than the stock landing gear on landings

Pros:
- Easy to install
- Inexpensive
- Have made nose overs next to impossible
- Makes it possible to taxi on rough damp grass

Takeaway: This is a very nice RC plane in the Parkzone Corsair with the rough field landing gear and it makes it far more flexible of a flying option than my T-28 Trojan! This plane was flown 100% stock with the exception of flying with a Gforce 2200mAh lipo battery.

This video review contains footage of the Kids Stuf RC Flying Balloon Hot Air Balloon and shows an unboxing, maiden flight, and review.

I got this as a Christmas gift and had never seen an RC Hot Air Balloon before. I thought it might be easy to fly due to it being for kids 8 and up, but boy was I wrong! It is fun, but it is hard to control!

Here is the complete review:

I haven't driven this little RC truck for a very long time. Most of that was due to the hairpin clip that holds the body on disappearing on me only to reappear months later.

Anyhow, I was out at a makeshift RC field with some buddies and I whipped out this bad boy and showed them that surface RC can be fun too.

Enjoy!

This video contains footage of my buddy Shawn flying his homemade FPV quad in the snow. I recorded it with my new Sony HDR CX290 Handycam Camcorder that has a great zoom. That made this video unique and very fun.

Enjoy!
