Foreign [Music] [Music] Welcome to my channel while I'm out here Today with the FMS Rafael and this is The 64 millimeter version it's extremely Cold today because it is below with the Freezing point so I'm dressed kind of Warm if I have shaky fingers flying this That explains why this is a highly Detailed airplane and it is not very Expensive it actually has metal landing Gear on the bottom however since the Price is not super expensive these are Not retracts the gear stays down as you Fly on the bottom it does come with a Pile of Ordnance that you can attach I Didn't put any on not for the Maiden The Canopy up front is nicely detailed a Little other things like refueling up Here this little unit lots of decals all Over it it's they did a really nice job Now for me flying this since I still Consider myself a beginner there's not a Lot of control I see so I've got back Here I've got like you call them Elevators or ailerons on each wing and a Rudder that's it but it is a delta wing And Delta wings are pretty much known to Fly nicely as they glide through the air So we're going to take it out and give This a shot now now it is EDF F EDF I'll Put what that stands for below right Here and that's why they call it a 64

Millimeter because if you look in the Back I don't know if the sun shines Through you can see the fan blade in There there's a big motor that spins Like a hair dryer sucking in air from The front pushing out the back and that Gives you thrust so let's go thrust this Down the runway now oh one last thing I Forgot to mention the battery I'll be Using it's a 4S battery right here it Doesn't weigh too much so it should give You not a lot of flight time I'm Expecting like three and a half minutes Maybe four minutes of flight time if I'm Lucky because it is cold out maybe even Less and I did put a spectrum receiver In the plane so when you watch the Unboxing you'll see the Spectrum Receiver I put in the plane and I'm Going to fly with my ix-12 which is Discontinued I put a camera on the Canopy so that means when I do the Center of gravity I have to account for That inside here you can see it does Come with an xt60 and I've added an Adapter so it can attach to my Spectrum Battery here over here you may not be Able to see it but that is my receiver Down there and that is the reflex system That comes with the FMS playing clean You can either tear it out or leave it In I'm going to leave it in so that I Can fly it with stability for takeoff And Landing you would think the battery

Would go up front for balance but I Think it goes way to the back I've got a Little arrow there where I balanced it Before I'll just check it out let's Check out the CG with the camera up top That should be good all right so camera Up front center of gravity is good 4S Battery inside here could you see me Here for us battery inside and now we Are going to go for the moment of truth Let's plug in the battery There we go you can see I pushed the Battery away back uh I would have Thought the battery would go way up here But it says the center of gravity for The balance point for this is back here So that's where she'd be All right let's check out these little Uh aileron elevator thingies they work So that's right that's left that's all I Got and then I got Rudder over here Let's see router left And right And Motors oh she goes okay Here it is the maiden [Music] And we're not going anywhere am I stuck In the ground I got a sec let's try this Again and we're not going anywhere but We're gonna go somewhere I got some speed pulling back Oh How the hell did that happen I got some speed pulling back

Got some speed pulling back How the hell did that happen I wasn't giving up I was like I'm going Regardless Before I was way too late to abort all right All right we'll call it Steve That was insane all right I gotta bring It back towards us here coming back I'm Just gonna do a little pass here That was impressive Oh yeah so she looks pretty cool in the Air so what I'm going to do now is Because I have to film this I'm going to Hand this controller to Steve Jedi Steve That's beside me I'll just bring it down at me here and This way I could grab the GoPro and get Some good shots as it flies around here Okay you ready Steve here we go how's That yeah that's good yep I'm gonna go grab the GoPro Bye bye let me stand on this side Sounds good yeah it sounds very good Yeah I'll set up for landing from the Woods Should Glide it's the delta wing Oh yeah she's gliding look at that Well Lost the camera down here that went the Slide And uh this wheel is designed to come Off do you know why this wheel is Designed to come off no because you

Could hand toss it oh it's a hand tosser So these just snap on the bottom there We go wait oh I broke to you yeah it Broke what's so cold out here it's not Good flying these in the cold I don't Know I got one left uh go from the front Oh one left so put it back there we go We're good yeah so Steve's Gonna Fly it Again with the two and a half wheels and Uh I gotta chase it with the DJI fpv Drone so the flight should be good oh I Don't know when you take off yeah that Wheel should hold on taken off foreign [Music] [Music] [Music] Foreign [Music] Foreign the next thing I want to show You is the unboxing and assembly of the Rafael check this out this is the box That Rafael comes in and you can see It's very well packaged items in the Box Include the owner's manual the wing Assembly and the wings bar all the Armament and fuel tanks vertical rear Stabilizer forward canards main fuselage With Graphics already attached USB cable And refueling nozzle and finally the Landing gear please note that when I Assemble this plane I'm using foam tack On the left and I'm using CA glue on the Right CA glue will bond instantly so I Use it just to hold things in place and

The foam tack is what bonds everything Together and it's nice and flexible so The first step in assembling the plane Is to glue the two canards in place next Connect the electrical cable that's Coming out of the vertical stabilizer to The fuselage and then glue the vertical Stabilizer in place the nose cone just Pops into place with a little bit of Pressure Next insert the wings bar into the Fuselage next attach the two electrical Cables together then put the wing over The wings bar and slide it into place Follow the same procedure with the Opposite Wing then screw both Wings into Place with the provided screws Installing the rear landing gear is very Easy because it just snaps into place The forward landing gear just slides Over the metal shaft and then is held in Place with a grub screw the external Fuel nozzle just slides into place you Can attach the wingtip missiles just by Sliding them into place when your plane Is all assembled the next thing you need To do is install a receiver that's Compatible with the radio you own I own A spectrum radio so I will be using a Spectrum receiver here you can see I Placed the receiver in the forward Section as far away from the battery as Possible with your receiver bound to Your radio it's very wise to make sure

All your control surfaces work before You get out to the field to go fly All right my final thoughts first off You get an awful lot for the price I Think this sells for like 199 or I'll Put the price up here what it sells for If I don't drop it it's not very Expensive considering how detailed it is And that it's an EDF at 64 millimeters Highly detailed awesome looking plane You will be the Envy of everybody at Your flying field so you can toss this Without the landing gear that's why it Came off it comes off very easy uh one Of my knit is very cold out here so one Of the little nibs here I don't know if You can see it I'll try to get close Right here it holds the landing gear in Place and one of them they're made out Of plastic it just broke off so if you Want to hold this into place you just Put a piece of fiberglass tape over it And it stays in place right now it's Just sitting in the little uh slot same As this one up here they are designed to Come off as well as the front landing Gear is designed to come off so that you Can just hand saw Santa Claus it's so Big underneath you're gonna have to put Some little grippy thing but there's Videos online on YouTube of people just Hand tossing and flying this thing which Is pretty cool and as I mentioned at the Start of the video it does come with all

Sorts of Arsenal that goes along the Bottom that fits everywhere comes all in The kit you saw it in the unboxing Already and it makes it look even more Spectacular so with all that said I'm Going to put a link to this below it's Not like I said it's not very expensive Now you're probably wondering could a Beginner fly it well I think not as your First plane you're gonna have to fly a Few planes before you fly this one but As soon as you have a few planes under Your belt then this one here flies very Nice it's it's very easy to fly Especially with the reflex system that's The stability system on here I was Flying in reflex and I handed it to Steve and he took the reflex off and he Flew it he had no issues in line they Did great every time but with all that Said it is a really really really Awesome plane look at this thing Delta Weight all right I'm sure you want one Of these in Your Arsenal so the links Are below and I hope you enjoyed this Video if you did please give it a thumbs Up because I'm freezing out here doing These videos every time I come out the Snow is coming so probably the next Video you'll see snow till then I say Bye [Music] I painted Skies [Music]
