YES! i was using a Hyperion 160mAh battery, as i too agree on the stock batts, mine go straight into a tin out the back, i wonder if the stock battery is causing some of these complaints?
now i'm not saying people have not had problems as we all know QC is hard to keep up with stuff from China, but sometimes, just sometimes i think some might expect too much from a "Foot of Foam"
anyway back to the topic
the Pole Cat
this is not a UMX
it is a Parkzone UM
Brushed motor so a lot slower than the E-Flite UMX
if you can fly any of the other Ultra Micros i think you will be fine with the Pole Cat
PS heres the UM Corsair vid for those that would like to see how "My" plane flew
I saw your video when it came out chuck. I did acknowledge that it could have been out of a bad batch but there were many of us in that thread that had the exact same issues. Without the hyperion battery, I would have thrown the um corsair in the trash! That is how bad it flew on stock batteries. There was lots of posts in the thread about the issue with no acknowledgment from HH about a bad batch. If it puts people off, I am sorry, but for me it was the worst plane I have gotten from HH yet.
