Flybear FX822 F 22 Raptor Stabilized Two Channel RC Airplane Flight Test Review

This good looking two channel RC model of the F-22 Raptor includes auto stabilization. Find it here

Pros
– Great looking model of the F-22 Raptor.
– Simple two channel control augmented with gyro stabilization.
– Widely available 3.7V 300mah battery gives the plane plenty of flight time.
– Tough EPP foam construction. Should be somewhat impact resistant to crashes.

Cons
– This one might be a bit tricky for beginner fliers. It's somewhat of a fast flier, and the gyro stabilization is not as effective as you would think.

    1. Congratulations. You were the first to say First. You win a shoutout in a future QC101 video. Again, congratulations!

  1. fyi, you CAN Describe what a stabilization system does, When a model has Movable Control Surfaces. this type of model HAS NO CONTROL SURFACES. (houston, we have two problems – LYING manufacturers, and gullible, uninformed, consumers.) cheers

    1. Not true. I’ve seen some where it works very well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECYaeXrVdE4. The stabilization system on these two channels vary the power to the motors to level the plane. For example, if the plane is rolling right, the right motor would increase power to level it left. Or if the plane is doing phugoid oscillations, it would increase power in the downslopes and decrease power in the upslopes to dampen the oscillations.

  2. So you crashed and edited it out? Shame on you QC101! 😉🤣

    I’m always envious of how long the batteries last with these small motor 2-channel planes, but they look kinda boring so…

  3. Surprised there is no dual rates. Usually a 2CH loves high rates for turns. But as you say, they need some “feel” to get to fly well. Turns need throttle. Good video.

  4. I’ll stick with the Predator Z51 you did a review on . Thank you Mr . Quadcopter 101 for all your awesome reviews , I have 2 favorite rc plane and quadcopter channels, yours and Rc Escape.
