Happy New Year: Updates to umFlight

Firstly, happy 2015! I chose to schedule this post for exactly 12:00 AM on January first so I could have it posted at exactly the moment that 2015 came to be! Pretty cool that this is one of the only blog posts posted right now…

umFlight is, I’m glad to say, still here and in its second year. I have had some record-breaking amounts of visitors and page views during December, and I hope that those people who visited in December enjoy umFlight.

1. Welcome to umFlight 2.0. umFlight, I have calculated, has been on the Internet for 137 days so far! I’m thinking about adding some things, which I go into detail about below.

2. Most of the near future (except the first “official” post next Sunday which will be about… well, wait and see!) will be product reviews. I was gifted several new planes on Christmas and I still have a few that I haven’t yet reviewed, so expect more reviews than usual mixed in with other posts in the coming months.

3. Reader’s Opinion is here to stay. Reader’s Opinion will continue this year, with RO4 being posted, of course, on the second week of January.

4. Multirotors. I WILL be posting about quadcopters. They will be mixed in with RC planes.

I’m also considering rolling out a huge update to umFlight soon, with a new theme, possibly a guest post form, a forum, and more things I haven’t thought about yet.

However, keep in mind that I’m only considering this at this point. If you have any questions, criticisms, ideas, compliments, or or comments in any way, about new things that may be added to umFlight, be sure to leave a comment below. Just remember that I’m still just considering this; even actually having an update is still undecided.

Thanks for reading the first umFlight post posted in 2015 (and for reading what may possibly be one of the only posts posted at the second that 2015 came into being)…

Quads Invade umFlight

I have a question for all of my readers:

Would you be okay if I started writing posts on UM multirotors and other UM aircraft?

Would you still come to umFlight if I added UM multirotors and other UM aircraft?

Would you still enjoy umFlight if I added UM multirotors and other UM aircraft

I also like flying UM multirotors, so that’s why I’m thinking about including them here on umFlight.

Thanks.

Edit (10-4-14) Thank you for everyone who has voted so far. I will decide if I’m going to include quads in umFlight once I get some more opinions.

Update (10-16-14) Thank you for voting. Another question: would you prefer quad copter posts to appear on the homepage or not?

New Edit: (11/10/2014) I’ve redone this post. I really need info on whether I should separate planes and quads or to keep them integrated with the planes. See the below poll…

1-7-2015: It’s been decided. Quad copters will be integrated into umFlight so I can keep posts coming. However, the below poll is still open if you want to leave your opinion on this change.

New Poll:

First Look at Upcoming Posts on umFlight

Today I thought that I could give readers a preview of posts that I am going to post on umFlight in the near future.

Firstly, the Quads Invade umFlight post is a sticky, meaning that it’s always on the top of the page. To find my most recent posts, look at the recent posts area of my sidebar, or scroll down past the Quads Invade umFlight post.

Secondly, tomorrow I have a short post about E-Flite’s new Spacewalker. I also have a review of a NEW plane which will be arriving at my house on Monday. I might also be starting a series of posts as soon as I get around to it…

I haven’t been posting outside of the regular Sunday posts due to a slight lack of things to post about. But, things should be speeding up in a week or two as I get new planes to review and my brain gets unclogged from my recent frequent posting.

Oh, and I will be posting more pictures, thanks to a suggestion/comment left on my Quads Invade umFlight post.

Thanks for reading, and look for a new post tomorrow at 5:00 AM! I want to hear what things YOU would like me to post about, so leave a comment!
