Happy New Year!

What’s Coming in 2020

As 2019 ended, rcvideoreviews.com saw a myriad of changes from adding new AV capabilities, expansion into racing and videography quads, and the addition of a few sponsors. I’ve set a blistering pace for new material in December averaging about one video per day for most of the month. Things slowed down a bit for the holidays, but now we’re in January and I’ll be back at it bringing new material to the channel.

I’ve continued to invest in camera equipment with the aim of improving video quality. Starting the week of 1/6/20, new cameras will be available for the bench videos.

I’ll also be sponsoring a Sweepstakes to give away some hardware in the first weeks of January, so keep an eye on the YouTube channel for entry instructions and learn what you can win.

About RC Video Reviews

The RC Video Reviews website is designed to be a companion to my YouTube channel. I put the site together to augment information in videos I’ve made about building, flying, and reviewing Radio Controlled Electric Airplanes. It can be difficult to capture everything in a video–especially when there is flying involved; therefore, the articles here are meant to augment information in the videos.

Additionally, part of the fun of this wonderful hobby is sharing the experience and talking about it with other hobbyists which is why there is a registration option for visitors. I encourage you to register and participate in discussing what you find on RC Video Reviews especially if you have experience in a given topic. So, enjoy the website. I look forward to sharing the hobby with you.

Latest Unbox

This is the latest RC Video Reviews unbox of the 2nd Tower Hobbies Sport. The first one died an untimely death on takeoff. While it took some time for Tower to restock this awesome plane, when they did, I jumped on it.

Flying with Stabilization

Ever want see the value of flight stabilization? This video shows how a stabilizer reduces your flight workload and lets you fly in more challenging conditions. Stabilizers run the gamut from basic 3 axis gyros like the Turnigy Aerostar SRS in the Millennium Master shown in the video to full on flight computers like the Eagletree Vector. This video demonstrates just how much workload stabilizers can offload in windy or gusty conditions. To emphasize the point, the Millennium Master is a 42″ EPO foam plane. Some pilots at the field with much larger balsa planes sat it out the day this video was recorded.

Fixing an Out of Balance Cell

This video shows you how to get a problem cell back in balance when your balance charger isn’t cutting it. The video below shows just one of many ways to deal with out of balance cells. The important takeaway? It worked. This pack is back in balance now and has stayed that way since the correction. This will do nothing to correct IR discrepancies among cells so if you have a pack that’s gone over the hill, the best you can expect with this technique is to get a little more life out of it.
