This is my buddy Odell tearing up the skies airshow style at Warbirds Over Whatcom with his Freewing F-14 Tomcat Twin 80mm EDF Jet. He put on an excellent flight Flight Demo as always, which is impressive considering he hadn't flown this jet in two years!

This is my Eachine EX2 Mini RTF Brushless FPV Drone Quadcopter Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review. This is basically an MJX Bugs 3 Mini and will use the same battery.

Eachine EX2 Mini RTF Brushless FPV Drone Quadcopter Unboxing, Maiden Flight, And Review (17 min 52 sec)

In this video I unbox the parts and pieces. I go over the quad, radio, and other accessories. I also do a flight test, light test, FPV Camera test, and a comparison to MJX Bugs 3.

Here are my review notes for this Eachine EX2 Mini FPV RC Drone:

Pros:
- It is a nice beginner RTF FPV model perfect for someone with RC Quad flight experience that wants to get into hobby grade FPV.
- 5.8ghz FPV that will work with nearly any 5.8ghz box goggles, Fatshark FPV Goggles, or FPV monitor.
- Powerful 2S brushless motors
- Angle and Acro flight modes
- Two high and low rate flight options and both as super smooth & responsive in angle mode
- Bright lights that make this is good night flyer candidate

Cons:
- The proprietary battery is something I can look past, but it is definitely a con for me
- The camera position is not adjustable to make it easier for more advanced flyers to rip around

RC Plane Crash - Freewing Mirage 2000C V2 Tiger Meet 80mm EDF Jet Maiden Flight With Bill (4 min 14 sec)

The RC Jet Crash was a good learning experience for Bill and he is optimistic about what he learned and how he will apply it to future flights with this delta wing Freewing 80mm EDF Jet.

This is the second flight with Bill's Freewing Mirage 2000C V2 Tiger Meet 80mm EDF Jet. John maidened this beautiful jet for Bill and flew this second flight as well. I don't think I have ever seen Bill as excited as I did during both the maiden and this flight.

This is my maiden flight with my ZOHD Dart in very smokey air due to wildfires all around me:

ZOHD Dart Sweepforward Wing FPV Racing Wing RC Plane LOS Maiden Flight In Wildfire Smoke (4 min 46 sec)

These are the review notes for this RC Plane:

Pros:
- It is fast
- Long flight times
- The flight envelope is very wide
- The easiest PNP build I have ever built
- This is one of the least expensive RC Planes I've ever reviewed with this quality
- It comes with a gyro that has an easy launch flight controller built-in just like the ZOHD Orbit Wing.
- The RC Airplane looks cool with its forward wing design.
- There is room for an FPV Camera and VTX. The canopy top is perfect for modifying to install your favorite FPV gear.
- It uses common 3S 1300 batteries up to 3s 1800's depending on how you have the battery bay configured. I used a 3S 1300 and still got very long flight times

Cons:
- I am not aware of any at this point.

This is footage of a beautiful Freewing F-4 Phantom II 90mm EDF Jet at Warbirds Over Whatcom with full ordinance off grass. He flew beautifully and slow enough that it was easy to capture this plane like I did.

Bill is really starting to get the hang of flying his E-flite Ultimate 2. It is impressive how responsive this 3D Aerobatic RC biplane BNF Basic RC plane with SAFE can be. This was his third flight and he just keeps getting better with this E-flite Biplane.

This is my LOS Maiden Flight with the super fun Sonic Modell Carbon Fiber Racing Wing. This is a great size for an FPV Wing at 1030m. It is versatile and I am still in awe of how well it flew. It made me happy inside to fly it and it was pure joy to carve up the sky with it at 7AM!

LOS Maiden Flight - Sonic Modell Carbon Fiber Racing Wing - 1030mm FPV Wing (5 min 14 sec)

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Its size is just about perfect
- The price makes it a great value
- It is very fast as I didn't even give it full throttle the entire flight
- The wide flight envelope makes it a fun flyer
- It has a nice glide slope
- This wing was designed to carry FPV gear
- The battery efficiency is exceptional
- It looks amazing carving up the sky

Cons:
- I wish it had a little room for more FPV gear as any install will be a fairly tight fit.

This is the Unboxing & Overview video for the Brand New Durafly Supermarine Seafire MkIIB 1100mm WWII RC Warbird From HobbyKing.

In this video I unbox the plane, go over the parts and pieces, give you some build tips, show you the flaps & retracts, and go over the pros and cons.

Unboxing & Overview - Durafly Supermarine Seafire MkIIB 1100mm WWII RC Warbird From HobbyKing (14 min 42 sec)

Here are my review notes for this Durafly Supermarine Spitfire variant:

Pros:
- A cool concept version on a classic WWII Warbird with tons of scale accessories that comes with three different scheme options.
- It is a great size for easy transport and still large enough to have a bigger plane feel to it.
- Scale flaps
- Retracts with rubber tires
- Nice bright LED lights
- A solid 3 bladed prop
- Ball link servo connectors
- It is quick and easy to adjust the tailwheel with provided tool

Cons:
- The stickers can be a little tricky to apply until you get the hang of it
- If you aren't familiar with now the servo connectors work, it can be a little confusing. After you get a feel for them, it seems second nature.

Like I mentioned in the video, please feel free to ask me any questions you may have and I will do my best to walk you through it.

This is Bomb Drop Chaos from last year's Warbirds Over Whatcom event. The next one is coming up July 21-21, so join the fun if you can at Bell Air R/C Flyers Club in Ferndale, WA!

I have been making videos at this event for the past several years and it is always a lot of fun to get out and see the RC Warbirds of all kinds do their thing.

In this video you will see primarily WWI Warbirds buzzing the target and dropping bombs. My favorite is the Curtiss P-6E Hawk Biplane.
