Happy New Year!
January and February are going to be busy months for the channel as I have two fully equipped FPV planes to finish building and to get them flying. The AR Wing Pro is complete and ready to maiden. It’s actually been done for a few weeks but Covid made it’s way through our house so I had to quarantine for a few weeks.
The AR Wing Pro is setup to travel with the stock Sunnysky 2216 1400Kv motor, 4s 5000mah LiPo, and a Crossfire Nano Receiver. I’m using a standard 5.8ghz VTX and I have the Runcam2 mounted on the top deck for some nice HD footage while flying.
In addition to the AR Wing Pro, I also need to get the Strix Globin in the air. This little hot rod is mostly assembled as of mid-January, but it needs the electronics installed. I’ll be flying this plane with the original PnP Motor – The Cobra 2217 2300Kv with a 6×4 prop and 4s battery. The Goblin also has a Matek F722-WPX Flight Controller and a Radiomaster R161 s.Bus receiver.
Did you know there are articles right here on the website? Yeah, in addition to the videos on YouTube, I also write supplemental articles for certain products. I just put some material together on the whole Radioking TX18s entry into the multi-protocol OpenTx radio market. Check it out!
Have you ever noticed RCVideoReviews.com is ad free? I must be the last website on the entire Internet without ads. I can turn ads on with the flick of a switch–believe me, they’re installed and working. I made this decision because I am SO SICK AND TIRED of having ads stuffed in my face everywhere I go. So I’ve opted to take a different approach. I’ve recently added affiliate links and opened a Patreon.com account.
You can help keep rcvideoreviews.com ad free by joining me on Patreon and using my affiliate links. If I can generate enough income from alternative channels, I would even turn ads off on the YouTube videos–ALL OF THEM, but that can only happen by developing revenue streams outside of YouTube. If you are willing to help, keep reading.
Affiliate links are provided by retailers to content creators and reviewers as a means for those content creators to earn commissions for referrals. Those commissions cost you nothing. Using affiliate links doesn’t cost you anything extra, it doesn’t save you anything extra. Commission expenses are part of the retailer’s marketing budget. So one way you can help the channel without spending a dime of your own money is to use my affiliate links for Amazon and Banggood. The best thing you can do is to replace your own bookmarks for Amazon and Banggood with these:
If you use my links, anything you buy at those two sites will generate a small commission for the channel. So please consider taking this very small action to help support the hard work I put in to bringing you information on YouTube and here on RCVideoReviews.com.
It takes a substantial effort to continue generating material for RC Video Reviews in both man hours and money. There is no production company or venture funding behind this channel. It is a one man show. If the material from RC Video Reviews has helped you and you’d like to support my efforts keeping new material coming, please consider joining me on Patreon. For as little as the price of a cup of coffee, you can help me keep making videos and generating content for the channel. I have 4 tiers ranging from $3.00 to $20.00. I’m sure you know, every little bit helps, so if your budget allows, please consider helping out.

The latest RC Video Reviews video is always available right here. Feel free to watch below or to visit on YouTube. The descriptions below the video have turned into a real bodge job ever since I started adding things like affiliate links.
