E-flite UMX MiG 15 DF SNEAK PEEK!

For two years I have been in silence and it has been driving me nuts! Finally I get to show you guys! This design focuses many engineering achievements and performance advancements. We started from a blank slate taking the knowledge of many experienced modelers. The goal: give the consumers a jet that not only performs like a jet but also looks like its full scale counterpart. The components have been designed from ground up in house. The MiG 15 performs just like its larger brothers with an amazing speed envelope and handling of a sport model. The fan unit is 28mm in diameter and produces great power without requiring the need for huge intakes and exhaust or even worse, cheater holes. It was very important to us that our first UMX jet was well rounded. It had to perform like a jet and look great from all angles. To cap it off we added AS3X which takes it to a whole other level in the performance envelope. We took our time and I feel like you won’t be disappointed. Stay tuned….. More to come shortly. :cool:;):D

Hi David and welcome aboard the Micro EDF Jets forum! :D

What a sweet looking jet! Putting in the AS3X is a great move as sometimes the wind may be just that little bit too high for micro jets. It's not fun when they are bouncing and you are simply hanging on for the ride instead of enjoying the laps. ;)

I love the clear canopy and scale lines. It looks like it has rudder too?

Did this get it's own specific AS3X board?

Yes you are correct. Each plane in the AS3X line has its own AS3X settings to fine tune each models performance.

And yes, Rudder (scale top and bottom operate) and steerable nose gear. :D

One picture has wheels, another hard to tell... Does it have retracts?
