My second flight so far more fun in aerobatics. No doubt will take it to the slope or try to catch some thermals soon.

That was superb. I'm not particularly interested in the plane as I don't like foamies.


Your flying was excellent. It shows you are not 'scared' of model planes in the manner of "I might crash it" as unless something beyond your control breaks you won't and you know it. Many modellers never get to that stage.

The filming? Lovely scenery always in focus with a big depth of field, perfect colour balance, and no 'arty' stuff such as constant switches to slow motion or frequent 'stop motion' which so often causes the thing to become totally disjointed.

And above all the plane is not 'built to impress bystanders"

Cheers and thank you.

Thanks Richard. Really appreciate the feedback.

Second fright of our over priced X-Flight A320 after a few repairs, modifications and a more rearward CG. Better than the near disastrous maiden flight.

3rd in the Eachine 400mm Micro Warbird series is out. Preceeded by the P-51 Mustang and F4U Corsair. This flies just as well. I leave it in MIDD mode. EXPERT mode is too sensitive for most fingers...and contrary to what I say in the video you can pull loops and rolls in stabilised MIDD mode. BEGINNER mode limits pitch and roll and prevents inverted flight. Durability of these models is great. The prop pops off in a bad arrival and just clicks back in place.

We're enjoy a bit of a nitro/glow power rennaisance in the Essential RC team at the moment. Wouldn't mind a few more especially a twin if I could find one...but here's Carl with is Laser 70 powered Spitfire.

After Carl showed me his nitro Spitfire I had to get in on the action so got a Tiger Moth. Powered by a Laser 100. Why didn't I do this sooner ! Over 20 years since I've flown a glow powered model. Fantastic.
