I hate to admit it however this one has my interest :-)
Hope the price stays inline with their other 2s offerings

Shucks - I wanted this one to be the size of the Edge and Inversa. They have about taken over for me.

Probably the better 3d plane compared to the SBach 3d (lighter, more wing span and more wing surface).

But since i already own the Sbach it is not really interesting for me. I rather get the Beast for better 3d performance.

Nevertheless i am curious on how this plan performs

Quique at it again...

"World Aerobatics Radio Control Champion Quique Somenzini has long been infatuated with the linear performance offered by round-cowl designs."

I'll bet the UMX Yak54 w/AS3X flies like a dream!

Oh crap. Another one????? I need to get a job w/ HH so they can just keep my paychecks. This whole "Earn a living, deposit check into bank account, turn around and deposit check w/ HH" is so inefficient!

I hate to say it, but the painted canopy bugs me. Why do they keep doing that???? Kept me away from the visionaire, and it may keep me away from this one.

+1 on the canopy part. I like the clear canopy ones. Makes it especially awesome with a little pilot in there like my GP F86 Sabre has!

I wondered how long it'd take you to find this bird.

Could the painted canopy be necessitated by the hatch feature?

Almost the entire forward fuselage opens, for huge battery space and positioning flexibility.

But maybe this means that for strength and structural integrity the hatch piece (including canopy area) needs to be a single, seamless and integrated item.

Weight and cost. The VisionAire and this new UMX Yak-54 are focused on 3D performance, not scale appearance.
