So pretty i like the red on the front that looks good, listen to that roar, here’s full throttle. While we got it whoa, Applause, Music. Oh now, it sounds like my prop. Is a little bit off balance? Music Applause. I think you got some work to do on that prop whoa yeah, a little bit of off balance on that prop let’s, say a lot i’m very concerned. Why don’t you look at it we’re going to land and look at it, so let’s go half flaps, maybe full flaps, full flaps will be nice slow. This thing down we’ll, take a look and see what’s vibrating and definitely put it back in the air wow. You should have put it down the first time you should have, that was the cow and your hole exploded. Your whole motor is dangling right now. This is legitimately the biggest airplane, i’ve ever owned, or will have flown let’s hope. It goes well and i can say, successfully – have flown i’m six foot four inches tall and from the wing tip to my head. It is taller than me, this is officially a bigger airplane than i am tall and that’s, exciting and scary, but i love larger airplanes. They tend to fly usually really well and i’ve heard that this fms beaver is an exceptional airplane. We’Re gon na fly on a 6s battery today this is an official maiden i’ve. Never so much has had this powered on other just to make sure the props spin the right way so i’m nervous and excited the usual maiden jitters.
This plane has flaps ailerons, rudder, elevator, throttle of course, and very nice lights. I also really like the attention to detail like our vortex generators. Here they are optional, but i put them on just because they’re there, the antennas, just this all, went together really well. I think the only thing that slowed me down at all was the size of this airplane because, as i was putting it together in the house, it’s kind of like okay, all right don’t hit the light don’t hit. The lamp don’t hit the everything around me just so i can spin it to move it, but once it’s together, i love how this thing pieces together, it’s actually extremely easy check out how the wing connects you guys there are these really cool little bullet plugs. You can see now we’re going to just take two bolts off holding each wing on so a total of four bolts, and then these just plug right in so i took both main sets of wings off two main pieces. So you know each wing half and then the main fuselage is how we transfer this in the car. And you know it took me an extra minute to put each wing half on so two to three extra minutes before i’m flying that’s, not too bad. Considering the size of airplane i’m really excited to fly this, and if you’re interested in knowing more of the details, i’ll have a link in the description box below let’s fly abby.
I just want to give you a perspective shot one more time: it’s huge massive, biggest plane biggest plane. Uh. Are you excited nervous, very nervous, yeah nerves of just nerves of steel? No, i was going to say jello soft jello yeah. You ready yeah. Okay, i’m, not let’s go oh, my god wow that was smooth flaps, my goodness it’s gon na need a touch of trim, but oh big, airplane, big airplane it’s. So pretty i like the red on the front that looks nice. Listen to that roar! Oh nice, nice! Nice, nice, oh by the way, i’m, just not using safe at all on this um. So remember. This is linked in the description box and if you use our links, you do help support our channel and our family, and we are forever grateful for you. Choosing to support a uh family, friendly channel means a lot to us. Guys means a lot to us, just not enough of that content out there in the world, and i just want to just proud i’m just proud of that. You know. We’Ve got a bit of an audience and i do not like having an audience on a maiden flight, a couple people up here, just watching and uh that’s fine, but oh i’m nervous. You know there’s hands free, i feel like i got it pretty good. Maybe do two clicks. Three clicks of up two was good, a little left roll. This is nice abby.
This is so nice. Oh, the rudder authority is wow. That was a lot here’s full throttle while we got it whoa Music. Oh now, it sounds like my prop. Is a little bit off balance not supposed to sound like that so much loud let’s! Do it again, just because it sounded nice! I think you got some work to do on that bro whoa yeah for such a bit. Try that again, i was not ready for that, even though you told me i mean i got it, but barely okay, sweet airplane wow. This thing flies really good, but that’s. What i was saying – big airplanes, tend to do that a little bit of off balance on that prop let’s say a lot of all right, very concerned about your property, something clicking. Maybe the cowl is a little bit. You know what i did notice. The cowl seem to be why don’t you look at it: we’re, gon na land and look at it Music. Okay, now i keep seeing these lights on the front of the wing and they look really good. Even in this super bright daylight, i can see those lights. Let’S go half flaps, maybe full flaps, full flaps will be nice. Slow. This thing down we’ll, take a look and see what’s vibrating and definitely put it back in the air wow Music. You should have put it down the first time that was the cow and your whole exploding. Your whole motor is dangling right now well, that’s.
By far the most epic explosion i’ve ever had on an electric plane. I mean that looks like a gas explosion. Uh, the cowl just completely shredded when i’m guessing first let’s turn this off for safety, guys yeah, because the whole motor got cut and that’s right, and i just don’t want that to kick on a little bit of shrapnel came inside the airplane um. Definitely i just thought because of the size of the airplane. Maybe it was something a bit off balance and a little vibration was okay, but now that that’s unplugged and the radio is off we’re safe to mess with this here, i’m. Pretty sure this is one of my first fms airplanes too uh, but check this out the prop you can see now the engine got shredded when it came out the paint off of it, the engine, the motor that’s, actually very heavy uh it’s, like the more you Put the louder, it got yeah, so this got chipped up, but i’m surprised. The prop is actually still in one piece: it felt nice and balanced. Listen. You know, of course, you’re gon na do a pre flight test on something like this and it felt nice and balanced before i flew at home, when i throttled up make sure everything feels good came out here, and it was a little bit loud, but i knew That the cowl around here was just like loose because there’s only a screw here, maybe one on the bottom, possibly two on the side.
So i knew we had some flap and i just the the vibrating. Well as we flew it, we both realized. It was getting louder, so i came around ready to land it. We we did. I flew one past too many yep, but in all fairness i did agree for safety sake. We should land before the end of the flight, and it just was what 30 seconds too late yep one pass too late, and here we are with a uh, completely destroyed cow let’s, see if we can go find the explosion area. I’Ll be honest. That was a pretty epic explosion. We’Re gon na pick this up because we don’t litter piece, there’s pieces piece. I mean it’s everywhere it is everywhere, except i don’t know what that is, but that looks like toilet paper so i’m, not gon na touch that there’s piece over there wow oh wow, here’s, more pieces. Okay, i got ta, i got ta help that’s the biggest piece. Look, i mean it just literally shredded it exploded. That was that was like an engine explosion and i’m. So happy i got to bring the rest of the airplane down in smooth. I mean i feel, like i recovered, that pretty nice very nice. Well, it looks like an egg shell doesn’t, it all the little pieces, i’m uh – i’m fairly speechless. I guess i don’t really know what happened. I’Ve never seen anything like that happen before, but that’s what happened – and you know us here on our channel we’re gon na share our honest experience with you guys.
I knew we could hear it was a bit loud. But again i thought that was just that large cowl, because it’s a large airplane flying abby called it right before me, nate time to land, and i thought it sounded like it got quieter. Because again i just thought the cowl was just flapping in the wind. You know i didn’t predict that happening, but i agreed okay it’s a little loud let’s, take a look and it’s weird, because even though i was cranking at full throttle getting a feel for the airplane having fun didn’t do that we didn’t do that higher rpms. But when i throttled down to come in for a landing – and i was maybe half throttle or less boom, just something caught that prop wrong and just completely got destroyed, so there you go i’m sure i’m positive. That horizon will do. I got this on horizons. Website. I’M, absolutely positive they’ll do the right thing and – and i think that’s probably the best thing to remember about this – they have amazing customer service. This is a maiden flight that happened, they’re, obviously going to like ask for a reenactment of what happened, and i am absolutely sure they’ll do the right thing, and maybe the one thing to take away from this is they’ve got the best customer service out there. I i i you know: i’ve had like a bad receiver, come on an rc truck, an rc crawler.
They ask a few questions, and usually they just sounds like you got a bad receiver and and so they’ve sent me that receiver on an old crawler i had years ago and i’ve heard tons of stories from you guys where they send part after part, until you’re Happy you know so like don’t abuse the system but know that it’s there to help you out and i’m sure that will come in handy now, um and it does help that we have a video of it happening. You know it doesn’t hurt at all so i’m. Crazy more than ever, this is an opportunity for me to give an ama shout out the academy of model aeronautics. It doesn’t matter how experienced you are. Sometimes we were experienced enough to realize something: doesn’t sound right, it’s time to come in. Unfortunately, it was 10 seconds too late, that’s literally what i mean within five seconds five seconds i would have been safely on the ground. I landed this thing with an exploded, motor and cowl. I mean it kicked off too so i’m very impressed. You got landed as soon as i saw. The explosion throttle was down and i just committed to landing it, and so experience came in for that matter. But who knows when that could have exploded? I could have just been getting a gun and, over the building over there, that’s right hit a gust of wind, the wrong way. A little disoriented go over the building for a half second, and at that pitch boom cal explodes or who knows what could happen? That was totally out of my control totally and the academy of model aeronautics, if, if anything would have happened, would have stepped in and i think that’s all.
I need to say about that. So we show all these perfect flights or near perfect flights all the time where we have success with what we consider success, just fun, um and – and here you have something that’s out of our control and that’s. Why i’m glad i’ve got a ama in my pocket? I’M, going to be an active member for as long as i fly always so i will never consider flying without having it and if you want to learn more about it and the many benefits you have. But the main thing i’m preaching here is the insurance it’s linked in the description box below a massive thanks to god for keeping everybody safe. When this happened, it was as safe as it could possibly be on that kind of an incident big thanks to the big guy upstairs for this really keeping everybody safe in this incident and also a massive thanks to our patreon supporters. Because of you guys, we jump in front of the camera. Full transparency no hold backs that’s because of our patreon supporters, mixed with combined with our moral compasses and uh man. Thank you guys just seriously. Thank you. We’Ll have another awesome, rc plane video, because this this was awesome, but not in the awesome kind of way, but we’ll have a more successful, really cool airplane video popping up right about now.
