funny thing is that it's the one model you'd want all the accessories, 'cause it comes with 2 batteries, the 4-port charger and AC adapter! even if you already had that charger - you could get a good price for it on the classifieds here or ebay
There are also PNP versions of the UM 4-site and UMX Extra 300. In the case of the 4site, the price difference is pretty extreme. It's $130 for BNF, $80 for PNP (the BNF comes with the 4 port clectra charger).

The 4 site is offered for the same reasons as the mSR: people don't want to buy more than one 4 port charger. The extra however, probably isn't selling as well next to the beast, and now the sbach, so I'm guessing this is to make it a more attractive package.

my guess is we'll be seeing $70-$80 polecat PNP's by christmas time, as it's bound to get lost in the shuffle of newer UM's, as well as other tired but true UM's like the T-28.

Nice video as usual Chuck. Thanks for taking the time to do that for us. Boy, she really is a looker in my book! Can't wait to get my hands on one. Cheers

Good vid Chuck!
How was the roll rate and inverted flight? I am thinking that this might be my step up from the um t-28.

it rolled good, but in all honesty, it was just too dark for my eyes to be trying a few different maneuvers BUT! just watch a pro fly it in the Horizon video and you can see it will do everything expected of this UM, in the right hands i'm sure this will perform as wanted, i just wish i could fly like that, but i'm just a regular average flyer

i hope to get out again and get some more footage of this great little bird, lets hope the weathers good Saturday as my lady will be here then to film it for you all

cheers chuck

Wow, the foam is really awesome, thanks for showing it to us in details. Hope all future UMs come like that. Well, as long as it's not too brittle. (Sometime smoother foam is more brittle). Absolutely loved that full power handlaunch you made! Great little airplane for sure.

If I may, this is your best video so far, but.... Music was good, but was a bit too loud, particularly at the beginning (almost as loud as your voice so you may want to tone it down just a little in your next "most waited for" video, no matter what plane is coming up!). Also, during flight, it's literally covering the motor sound (which is a must to hear for us, yes, I know, we have heard those 8.5mm motors before, but it gives us a better idea of the speed of the airplane related to throttle input). Otherwise, it's definitively your best video for sure. It was like: bang, bang, bang, showing all the important stuff, very concise, and it was awesome that you had the XP and the Cat together for a great showdown, particularly on the foam quality.

Already looking forward for your next video. Hope it's a UMX Stryker! Keep them coming, Chuck, you're doing an awesome job. Remember though, we are jaleous, and we know where you live (well, somewhere in Australia). Horizon, put that guy on your Christmas list! He deserves it!
