New UM Planes and Quads for Christmas!

I got some of what I predicted in last year’s last post for Christmas! Let me tell you about them…

1. Nano QX FPV

I thought FPV would be fun. But I was wrong. It’s VERY fun! I never even felt like I was sitting on my couch. I was 5 feet in the air chasing family members and zooming through the house.

Expect a review in a month or so. It, ah, had an ‘issue’ with the camera… The lens fell off… So, I’ll have to get that worked out before the review.

2. Hobbyzone Champ

I know. Again. Actually, I think that this is my fifth Champ, and, it still wears the crown of the best ultra micro plane I have flown so far.

You can visit my review here.

Conclusion

I had a great end of 2014, and I got the top RC planes on my wanted list! Even though I got the top wanted planes, my wanted list has actually gotten longer!

Now I want ANOTHER Nano QX FPV so people can race me, and fancy, expensive video goggles. Not to mention another FPV camera to put on a faithful Champ. Rest assured that I’ll get a review of these extra wanted things out to you if I get them.

As always, there’s a Reader’s Opinion next week. Until then, thanks for reading!

New Product: Horizon Hobby/E-Flite UMX B-17G Flying Fortress BNF with AS3X Technology

I was just checking my email and I saw this beauty in my inbox. I’m temped to buy it… Just another thing to add to the want list. And, I have a perfect excuse to get it: for a review here, on umFlight!

Here’s the link: LINK

Enjoy. I am off to go watch the video again!

 

umFlight First Look: Hobbyzone Sport Cub S BNF

I just received a Hobbyzone Sport Cub S BNF on Monday! The plane was neatly packaged. The battery and USB charger were in foam slots, and the SC S was packaged in foam. The new plane felt heavy and solid compared to the Champ. It was easy to setup on the DX6i, and then I was flying!

SAFE worked like a dream. But, it seems that there is no self leveling in intermediate mode like there is on quads equipped with SAFE. The Panic button… Well, it was just plane (pardon the pun) AMAZING! It self leveled the plane no matter what and I could even activate the Panic button and land. This could be good for teaching newbies (and me) all about how, on landing, they should use up/down throttle to change altitude, NOT up/down elevator.

Stay tuned for a full review very soon. I hope you enjoyed today’s post and I’ll see you on Sunday! Comment, share, and enjoy!

Who’s buying E-Flite’s NEW UMX Spacewalker

It doesn’t have AS3X. It’s small. It’s light. But, I’m planning on getting and reviewing it sometime soon. Are you going to buy it, or are you going to pass on this one?

I’ve included a poll, so vote in the poll and/or leave a comment!
