Default E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m BNF Basic RC Plane

These are my E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m BNF Basic RC Plane review videos.

Unboxing:

Maiden Flight:

Pros:
- Lights lights lights! They are stunning and will make a great E-flite Night Flyer!
- Parts and pieces are protected by plastic bags.
- A good color scheme.
- The landing gear it big and has nice suspension
- It has optional SAFE Select that I decided NOT to setup for now.
- The build & radio setup are not too bad.
- Big throws on the control surfaces for 3D flight
- Smart equipment features (Sorry I didn't cover them, I need more time for that)

Cons:
- Small dents on top of the fuse
- The wiring by the main wing was wrapped around the servo so badly that I had to take things apart to reroute it.
- Collets for prop installation adds another possible failure point and is a very questionable choice on a plane like this that is marketed to hang by its prop.
- The battery bay being on the bottom of the plane is just plain silly in 2020. That is all I am going to say about that.
