Flybear FX861 J15 Flying Shark RC Combat Jet Flight Test Review

This cool looking large 2 channel RC warplane is fast, but can be flown by new fliers. Find it here
Camera attached to plane

– Actually a flying scale model of the J15 Flying Shark. A relatively easy and stable flier for a scale. Although no dihedral, will level off if throttle is lowered and yaw stick is released.
– Can lift an 808 #16 V3 camera.
– Great range at approximately 200 meters.
– Very crash resistant. Don’t believe me? Watch the video 😉
– Does not require FAA registration. Less than 250 grams.
– Looks really really cool!

– It flies somewhat fast for a beginners plane. Don’t think that this can be hand launched as it takes quite a bit of runway to takeoff. Should be flown at large fields (NOT a backyard or indoor flier).

RTF version means ready to fly, you can get all you need to fly the glider in the package.
2.4GHz transmitter power ensures the strong anti-jamming capability
Cool J15 war airplane full scale design is perfect for military fans
Push-back double propeller design can protects propeller from crashing better
Bright LED night light on tail makes the flight more cool
Special EPP airplane model material with a good anti-crash performance
2 channel system supports up / down, turn left / right and forward / backward functions

danggg I should have bought this! I had a terrible experience with a foam glider 10 years ago, but hoping something like this would be easier to fly?

Quadcopter 101 help dron radio calibration

Dan Johnston says:

I love the way make the video more interesting by attachin the camera to the rc jet 🙂 Although I wonder where your house is.

wr0ngun says:

Your genuine love for these products, and embrace of your inner child has earned my subscription. Thank you sir.

MrPolymers says:

I’m surprised of the stability. I have the Flybear 808 biplane I use for indoor flights. I’d think this not the plane for folks in urban areas that don’t have the vast room you do to fly these things. Stick to quadcopters for those folks. Still waiting to test fly both my F959 & Hubsan H301S powered gliders at my RC field.

Jona Lona says:

Can it carrie a small camera

Borey Slav says:

Su 27

Sauce Duck Luck says:

I feel like a plane this large should be 3 channel.

Farrell McGovern says:

It looks like China’s Sukhoi Su-33 derived carrier based fighter, the Shenyang J-15 Flying Shark . The thickening of the wings where they merge into the fuselage gives a slight gull-wing type “dihedral”. That, combined with the canards would make it a fairly stable flier.

Phantomshttersucksatlife says:

Great video as always. I love that little jet. Where did you get the model of the 808 cam? There are so many diff ones. Thanks!

Stephen Comer says:

I read about it and it has 3-gyros, I think.

LogansPortPilot RP says:

Oh forgot to mention,i also have the syma x5c and that thing is awesome really good high quality camera,a real bargain in my honest opinion.,

joe anderson says:

don’t guess you could take off and land on the grass in a park ? I would have to find a big parking lot to take off and land. any suggestions – wish I had a big clearing like you have there.

Monty Love says:

thats what delta wings do fly stable

Riyadh Abu says:

hey there quite copter 101 can I have you aeroplane FX 861

murad murad says:

I had this one before it flies in Circles .. but the good thing about it is when it fail .. just stop the motors then it land safely

Enjoy! says:


Cory Reeves says:

Cool plane do you work at a hobby shop?

Cp Squidoodaly says:

Johnus Johnson says:

too expensive compared to C17 for example, you can get a good flying wing for less

Azka Qinthara says:

Manh Ngo says:

Wobble Copter says:

The yellow color is very bright and should be easy to see.

Graham Blackmore says:

uwut m8 says:

50$ for a differential thrust plane o.O ..not worth it in my opinion

LogansPortPilot RP says:

Quadcopter 101,salutations from Ford City PA,i to am a rc flight enthusiast,i mainly scratch build all my planes ,i do however own several wl toys products,(v911- 3,v912- 2,cessna 182, f959 glider- 2 ,and i also own a couple of their quadcopters,,all the wl toys products are made really well, only thing not so good is their camera on v959 quad, anyway love your videos very informative.

Skydive Driver says:

I am surprise how maneuverable it is for just using engine thrust for controlling it. And yes it is fast. Nice review.

MrPrr0 says:

I really enjoy seeing you enjoying your reviews, great work!

John M Edmondson says:

Wonderful review – you really had me laughing with you throughout this one so much! I think it is your affable manner and style that makes your reviews so endearing and relevant, not to mention enjoyable. Just one thought on the 808 no 16 keychain camera. I suspect that had you mounted it in the same position but on the underside of the fuselage you would not have had any problems with it but the weight on the top would have contributed more to stability issues, even if it is only 20 grams.Thanks again for another great review!

Hairy D says:

Great video and nice jet. What type cam are you using?

D Navigator says:

Q101 or anyone, Do you know What kind of lipo & or connector it uses? I’m looking for spares.

Dani2wheels says:
