Whats the first RCPowers plane you flew? Do you have video of it? Post it here! I'll start off by posting a couple: My RCPowers Easybuild F22 (V1) and my F117 v2 1st and 2nd flight on a snowy Thanksgiving in 2010...

While I dont have any vidoes of me flying at the time my very first rcp plane was the Extra-300...   not a beginner plane to learn on but I flew it on buddy box for a full flight and then only for about 30sec in air myself before the inevitable crash...
Also spent a ton of time painting it as this was my first plane

however the first plane that I actually learnt to fly on and also perform solo on was the rcp F22v2. Again, no videos just images...

Well like KK no video of my first  flights just the first plane. Heck the first plane went through a lot of noses I remember that but it was the RCP F18 V3

Great Pics KK! The extra 300 is an ambitious first build, way to go! You've come a long way since the F22v2, your flights and videos are excellent now!

Wow, amazing first paint job, Wildthing! Having built so many other planes, what do you thing about the f18v3 in retrospect?

After a hundred crashes and a lot of fixes I think it was a great plane to learn on.  But really I had 0 flying skills when I started, not even sim time so it must be a decent flyer if you can learn on it from scratch. I still have that plane, it was just patched up to make look pretty and hang on a wall. I couldn't throw that paint job out. 😃 😃 
That was also my first airbrush attempt, my painting ambition has gone way down now ðŸ˜‹ðŸ˜‹ðŸ˜‹  .  I should actually build another one just to see what it really is like to fly now that I can somewhat fly.

For a first plane, your paint job is so good, I wouldnt have the heart to fly it or i should say crash it... 😉

I grew up and reality gave me a slap in the face and said why would you spend that kind of time on it when you are going to trash it ðŸ˜‚😂😂

I'll need to find the video but my first plane was an F/A-22 v1. Built it out of grey depron, threw in your standard 2212 brushless with a 3s and tossed it in the air.
