Thank you, everybody who clicked on one of my videos and especially if you hit the subscribe button, but i hit a million views on the channel. It doesn’t sound like a lot because there’s channels out there that do that on every video but i’m, just a small channel and i never expected to reach that milestone. So that is a milestone that i want to say thank you for so, yes, i am going to give away this volantex rc mini train star, so in the box, we’ll find instruction manual. This plane comes completely assembled, except for it looks like the landing gear, so let’s just install that right now there we go now it’s completely assembled here is a usb charger and there is a spare propeller and there’s. Also, a spare motor shaft adapter transmitter right here requires four double a’s and then under here is the battery velcro to hold it in. So there is no like actual battery compartment, so it is a single cell lipo, it’s, 3.7 volts 180 milliamp hours. This is the first three channel plane that i have on the channel. There will be a little bit of learning with this before we take it for a flight. I want to talk about the six axis stabilizer, because this is all new to me because, as i mentioned, i never had a three channel plane and i think it’s pretty neat, so let’s get this bound up. First thing we do is we turn the controller on now it’s gon na flash for a little bit and then beat we are gon na plug in the plane.
Oh, you hear that i don’t know if you can hear the servos the stabilizer is is working so what the stabilizer does is it wants to keep the plane level, so it will make the adjustments in the tail here. So if the plane starts leaning to the left see the rudder it’s turning to the right there, and then it does the same. If you turn it to the right, the rudder turns to the left: it’s really responsive. So it’ll do the same on the elevators here. If the front end of the plane is pitched too high, these elevators went down now. If i pitch down, you see the elevators go up, so i think that’s really awesome how it does that wants to fix it, and that is only in beginner mode. There’S. Three modes here: if you flip to the second mode, which is mid, it does do the stabilization it’s, just not as drastic and then, if you switch it to expert, there is no stabilization. It is completely up to the pilot to control this plane and to calibrate the gyro, while the throttle’s still locked you just down and out, and it resets just like that. Needless to say, we will be starting in beginner mode, because i never flew a plane like this, but now let’s get this battery charged up and take it for a flight Music. Okay, we have the mini train star here, all charged up, let’s see if we could take off now this one wheel here i did try and loosen it up.
It was really tight. It would not spin too easily so hopefully it spins enough that we can take off so we’re gon na unlock the propellers, and to do that, you do a up down now that unlocks the propeller and next we want to check the trim. I see the rudder is a little bit to the left, so we’re gon na hit this trim right here. Try and straighten this rudder out. That looks pretty good there. Okay, let’s, take off let’s, see how good it does on a takeoff. We might have to do a hand launch, but here we go. Oh no, it went it went to the left right away and which i’m glad that happened, because this propeller is a breakaway propeller. So it is designed to break free. So i don’t know if it’s, because this wheel, this wheel, is a little tight and i have a feeling that’s why it went to that side. Let’S try one more time. If we don’t have any luck, we’ll do a hand, launch nope Applause. Let’S do a hand launch there. We go moves pretty good. I do have a little bit of a breeze. You can see the plane wobbling back and forth a little bit so for the elevator. If you go, oh stay out of the tree, so the elevator, if you pull back on the stick, it’ll go up. If you push forward on the stick, it goes down but left is left and right is right.
It’S, just the elevator, where, if you go, if you hit down, it goes up and if you hit up it goes down. I have these. I don’t know if these birds are mad at me flying over the field here, so pretty cool, very stable, very stable. I increase throttle all the way, and that is another way that you can increase altitude, but let’s lower throttle, bring it back down. Let’S switch into the other mode. Now let’s go into the middle, the medium mode or the mid mode. Oh wow, that really made it turn a lot tighter still stabilizing let’s do a loop. Oh, we did a loop awesome. Let’S let’s try another loop, oh yeah! You could definitely tell there’s less stabilization but it’s pretty cool, because there is still stabilization, but it gives you the freedom to do things like these loops here. One loop can we do two two loops? Oh three, loops, okay, getting carried away here! Awesome i like the middle. I hope you could see it it’s just past sunset, but it’s pretty awesome. Okay, we’re gon na go into expert. I don’t know how this is gon na go because uh. Well, i just don’t know what expert is. I know i’m, not an expert being that this is the first time i’m flying this plane. Oh boy, it just wanted to go up. Oh wow, you can definitely tell there’s no stabilization it. The plane goes where it wants to go.
It is. It is much harder to oh, no, oh, it is a lot harder in expert. Luckily, this plane is made of foam and we have this breakaway propeller let’s go back to beginner just to take off and then we’ll go back into expert yeah, it’s, so easy in. In beginner mode let’s go back into the mid and yeah. You could tell right away. You see how it’s doing some pretty hard banking, okay we’ll go back into expert one more time just to try it. Oh man, i definitely need oh wow. I definitely need practice in expert. Oh there’s, the propeller almost lost it. This is my first time flying this, so it is definitely testing my skills. So this does have one more feature and we’re gon na try. It we’ll put it in the beginner. You have to rebind it to do this it’s one key return. What you do is you unplug? It turn the power off on the controller turn the power on then we’re gon na plug the plane in okay now hold that in now, when i fly it if i’m flying away from me – and i hit this bottom button here – it’s supposed to do a 180 And come back to me so let’s try this okay, we had to unlock the propeller now let’s hit that button, so i hit it it’s not doing anything there i hit it let’s hit it again, see if it turns it’s, not turning.
Let’S fly it over. Here again and hit it and oh yeah look it’s turning by itself, it’s kind of coming back but it’s heading over that way, but you could take over with the rudder right away. Can can i get a landing? Oh, no! So yeah the one key return does kind of work. It does make the plane just start turning by itself and heading back in your general direction, Music. So the velantex rc mini train star very cool plane. It flies great in the beginner and the mid modes, but the expert it was a little too hard for me to control this plane in expert. That is my lack of experience flying a three channel plane. Hopefully i do get a little bit better at that. This is a very cool plane, a very good introduction into three channel airplanes, also not a bad price. It was just under sixty dollars, but i am extremely happy with this plane other than the takeoff. This plane was a great plane to fly for me. So, as i said, this is the one million view giveaway, so i will be giving this away to one lucky subscriber so how the giveaway works and how you get yourself entered. Is you have to be a subscriber from the us, and then all you have to do is comment down below your comment. Is your entry? This will be the only giveaway for july.
