UMX Whipit DLG BNF Basic
Few modelling experiences can be as fulfilling as catching a thermal from a model launched by hand, with no other energy source involved. Until now, this experience has been out of reach to non-expert modelers for a variety of reasons. The E-flite® UMX™ Whipit™ DLG glider is for everyone regardless of experience level.
Like the high-performance discus-launch gliders (DLG) popular in competition, this ultra micro glider features carbon fiber for strength. The wing is removable for easy storage and is reinforced for right or left handed launches. A protective pod cover easily reveals the simple two-channel Spektrum™ DSMX® control system and battery. With just a single 150mAh 1S Li-Po battery you can expect long flight times either in your backyard, a local park or just about anywhere you want to harness the power of nature.
Wingspan: 24.4 in (620mm)
Overall Length: 24.2 in (620mm)
Wing Area: 82.0 sq in (5.30 sq dm)
Engine Size: N/A
Radio: 4 channel minimum
Speed Control : N/A
Recommended Battery: 150mAh 1S 3.7V 25C LiPo
Needed to Complete
• 4+ channel transmitter with Spektrum DSM2®/DSMX 2.4GHz technology
• Ultra micro 150mAh 1S 3.7V Li-Po flight battery
• Li-Po charger
I have not had any issues with crushing the wingtip or anything like that either.
Hope that helps.
