Overview

The Officially Licensed Ultra Micro Thunderbird
The United States Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team has been inspiring aviation fans since the very start of the jet age. Going into a 33 year run, the incredible Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon multi-role jet platform has been an exemplary part of the precision and dedication for which the team is known. The E-flite® UMX™ F-16 EDF jet is inspired by the engineering and world-renowned service record of the original by offering the excitement of a great flying RC jet you can enjoy just about anywhere.

You’ll enjoy four-channel precision with an operational rudder and full-flying horizontal stabilizers that provide both pitch and roll control. A steerable nose wheel helps you maneuver on the ground so that you can keep the air show going from startup to shut down. In the air, innovative AS3X® technology makes this show stopping EDF perform as if you’re at the controls of jet that’s been expertly tuned.

All you need to fly the UMX F-16 EDF right away is a 6+ channel transmitter with Spektrum DSM2®/DSMX® 2.4GHz technology that’s capable of dual rates and expo, 280mAh 2S 7.4V Li-Po battery (EFLB2802S30 recommended) and a suitable charger.

AS3X® Technology
The advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel ultra micro receiver is what helps give the E-flite® UMX™ F-16 jet an incredibly solid look and feel in the air. It’s technology that works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis sensing with exclusively tuned flight control software. As a result, your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced while control feel is always rock-solid so you can make your maneuvers look great. It’s an impressive flight experience that will have you feeling like you’re at the controls of an expertly-tuned jet that’s much larger.

Authenticity
The UMX™ F-16 is officially licensed by Lockheed Martin and is a near 1/32nd scale replica of the Fighting Falcon with a trim scheme inspired by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds precision aerobatics show team.

Tailerons
Full-flying horizontal stabilizers provide highly-effective pitch and roll control and a lightweight setup that still provides 4-channel functionality.

Delta-V® EDF
The installed E-flite® Delta-V 180m EDF ducted fan system is tuned with a new 13500Kv motor to deliver smooth power. When combined with the engineered ducting of the UMX F-16, you get a thrilling jet experience that can be enjoyed just about anywhere.

Landing Gear
The lightweight landing gear setup features nose wheel steering that allows you to guide your UMX F-16 on smooth runways. The wire struts simply plug-in, so they can be easily removed for faster flight performance.

Bind-N-Fly® Easy
Because the UMX F-16 comes out of the box fully assembled, all you have to do is charge the recommended 280mAh 2S 7.4V Li-Po (EFLB2802S30) battery, bind the jet to your 6-channel computer radio equipped with genuine Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMX technology and fly.

This one should definitely raise the bar for UMX-size EDF performance. Interesting that it has full-flying ailevators. The higher Kv motor combined with a stout, high-performance pack such as a TP 325 70c BabbelBatt should provide class-leading thrust-to-weight & top speed, but it still won't generate anywhere near enough power for unlimited vertical with an AUW of 2.8 oz. But even though vertical performance will be less than scale, I'll still be adding one to my hangar!

Curious what the plug to be used will be, will it be the UMX style used for the smaller packs or will they go to a more widely used JST?

Probably still that oddball one they put in all the 2S UMX planes I assume. A little annoying to parallel charge with FMA chargers but doable.

It wouldn't make any sense to change connectors this late in the game. Besides, switching to the red JST for power & using a separate balance connector would just add dead-weight. I'm sure they'll use the same PH-3 connector they've used for all of the 2s bl UMX planes.

One of the stock photos shows hand-launching, w/o LG.

But, that air intake under the nose looks pretty fragile for bellyflop landings.

My number 1 question, estimated delivery date.

I worked on F-16s in the USAF and have been wanting this model since I got the Habu with SAFE. I'm really curious about the scaled performance of the Horizontal Stabilizers rather than ailerons.

Look like the same HH 2S plug as the other models.
