Thank you. Sounds easy enough, I may go back and see if I can clean some of them up.

I have several onboard camera videos, but they are almost annoying to watch, due to all the wind noise. Then there is the 1:30 of looking at grass while I walk over to pick the plane up, and shut down the camera...

Hahaha, yep those should only apply if it was the missus behind the camera!

I put a piece of tape over the 808#16's mic hole which reduces it while still letting some wind noise through for a sense of the speed, and Youtube's editor also lets you adjust the video's volume down to 0 if you wish (can always pipe in the sound of a real Merlin or Cyclone )

In youtube's editor it's easy to trim from the beginning or end just by dragging the border left or right, or "clip" sections for delete or moving around.

Great thread! I'll start with two of my favorite planes to fly in my hangar that now have hundreds of flights, the FMS 1400 T-28 & Starmax A-1d, I enjoy flying these two so much that I got two more kits to build V2's this Winter.

Nitroplanes Airfield Series T-28 111 MPH Flight (6 min 58 sec)


Starmax 1600MM A-1 Skyraider Flight (4 min 52 sec)

Cool thread shirty.......was just directed here from elec warbirds...
I will get in on this
parkzone spitfire low pass limbo (3 min 35 sec)

My power 15 4s park zone spit and some of the lowest passes I have achieved with her

max thrust mig15 with 2kg of thrust & 150mph passes (4 min 59 sec)

I know its an edf but surely she's still a warbird from the 50s and 60s

I can seen this being a very successful thread I will post more as time progresses

Two more of my favorites; The FMS FW-190 and the P-51 V5.

In the beginning I had a love/hate relationship with the FW-190, loved the way it flew from the very first flight but hated that the new power system caused a blade to fail in flight twice, both times ejecting the motor One motor was found and the other lays in the MN river bottoms

Holy moly 1400mm on 8s was that the stock prop and spinner? How long did it last on that setup? Unlimited vert I love it

Oh and that 190 is amazing on 5s

Thanks Ben, the p-51 motor was a 380kv and had no problems and surprisingly enough neither did the stock prop on 8s. Ultimately though it did meet it's demise when the glue failed on one of the carbon fiber rods in the wing and the tips decided to touch mid flight during an extremely gusty day, it was a learning experience and spectacular crash and I've since started fiber-glassing the wings on my modified planes.
