So what is RC Video Reviews all about? The website launched in December of 2017 as an extension to a growing library of Youtube videos providing unboxings, build and flight reviews, technical articles, flight videos, and other RC flight related information. If you haven’t visited my Youtube channel, please stop by, subscribe and share with your friends if you like the material: https://www.youtube.com/c/rcvideoreviews
What to expect at RC Video Reviews
RC Video Reviews is here to pass along information I’ve learned during the course of my time in Radio Controlled flying. You might be wondering why my point of view should matter, so I’ll share a little of my background:
I became a licensed pilot before the age of 18 followed by 4 years in the US Navy flying as a helicopter crewman. Then I worked for 25 years engineering telecommunications systems. I’m also a Ham Radio Technician. The long and short of it is: I’ve been an aviation enthusiast since long before the government let me touch the controls of an airplane and I’ve got a habit of diving deep into topics I like.
- Over 1000 hours of full scale flight experience as pilot and crew
- Over 1000 logged radio control flights
- Professional engineering experience
- Licensed HAM Technician
While there are countless Youtube channels and websites providing RC reviews, I have yet to find one that focuses in the areas I’m personally interested in–namely fixed wing electric. Quads are everywhere and are little more than a distraction to me. Fortunately, this website and my Youtube channel are not primary sources of income, so I have the luxury of focusing on what I care about and don’t have to pursue the hot tickets. That said, here are the topics you can expect to find discussed here:
- Fixed Wing Electric Planes (Balsa, EPO, EPP, etc…)
- Supporting Equipment – Batteries, Chargers, Motors
- Radio Tech – Specifically Taranis/FrSky and Dragonlink
- Flight Computers/Stabilization
- FPV Equipment
How Will it Work?
In the first RC Video Reviews article, I explain how I plan to structure reviews. Here’s a link if you’d like to learn more about it.
