Default Parkzone Archer BNF Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review

This video review features my new Parkzone Archer BNF unboxing, maiden flight, flight review, and fun bonus footage including a crash.

This is the first civilian RC Plane I have ever owned and I am excited about it with a few exceptions that surfaced when reviewing this new RC Plane.

Here are the unboxing and review notes for this plane

Unboxing Review Notes:

Cons
- Hatch design and functionality
- Horizontal stabilizer install
- Odd size and method to secure battery

Pros
- Very nice looking plane
- Nice size for more varied flying locations
- Price point when purchased

Here are the flight review notes:

- Elevator required lots of radio trim
- It is a great little flyer
- Does rolls and loops with ease
- Lands hotter than expected
