Default Parkzone Archer 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

Before you buy a Parkzone Archer on a fire sale, have a look at the notes below and watch the videos too:

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

http://youtu.be/cD0Wy7BseUQ Here is my first sunny day flight with this plane and it happens to be my best landing caught on video to date with this plane as well.

This was a lot of fun in some crazy choppy cross-wind.

Looks like a nice plane, Enjoyed the bloopers also, you are a good sport for posting. I hate it when the phone rings just prior to take off... LOL.

Thanks Rob! Luckily that wasn't my phone, but it was fun to remind my cameraman to shut off his phone with the bloopers

That was a nice review, The Archer kind of reminds me of the Great Planes Cherokee .40 only much smaller of course. Looks like a fun little plane and don't worry about the brush with the shrubs, I have done much worse.
