I can't believe there is nothing like a nano hawk sold anymore in stores (that I've seen). I miss that little thing. I accidentally crushed it climbing up stairs with it on top of some books when I tripped.

Sounds horrible, can't even try to imagine what that must have looked like.

Thanks!
You may want to start with the ultra micro T-28, but the icon is also a good idea. I would stick to the T-28 as it is slower, but if you have a large flying space (I fly my Icon in my school's field, the kids go wild) I would use the Icon. I have both planes, so if you have a large field, get the Icon, otherwise get the T-28. Hope this helps!!!

Small space flying which one?

I know this may be comnon questions but debating on the following for slow backyard flying and able to handle 5 to 10 mph winds.

- UMX RADIAN
- UMX AS3XTRA
- UMX SABACH
- UMX YAK 54

Which one is most durable and requires least space? My 4 Channel experiences are with UM T-28 and UM P51D Mustang. Looking sometime more crash durable. My UM P51D handles wind great but I am not looking for scale flyer anymore.

Will take the easy route, remove AS3Extra from your short list, with a good pilot it would probably be the easiest to fly in small area, but NO wind and NOT durable...

PS My bet is that debate will come down to Yak vs. SBach And NO way I'm going to pick sides in that fight....

You left out the UMX Beast. Best in the wind out of your list, although wind and UMX sized planes aren't a good mix. I haven't flown the Radian or Extra. Go to the UMX Beast thread there is lots of testimony about The Beast in the Wind.

The UMX Radian does great with that kind of wind. It can fly slowly, in a very small space or you can take it high to catch thermals, or fly relatively fast at full throttle. It is also extremely light and therefore durable.
