Got Me A UMX Beast!

Ok so here is the disclaimer before anyone tells me I'm not ready for it yet!

I just bought it for the next plane in my learning progression and am not trying to fly it yet for sure.

K, that being said I found a local shop that isn't my normal local shop that had 2 left. My normal local shop is already sold out. I wanted to make sure I got this one at the nice price of $99.99 before it was gone. Still not sure why they decided to discontinue this one but I love the looks and available performance right out of the box so I'm pretty stoked!

As a side note does anyone know if someone besides horizon makes a battery pack for this plane? The guy at the shop said I have to redo the wiring to use something like a thunder power for instance...

EDIT:Never mind....just seen your location...Just seen the FL at first.

Not rewire, just need the same size battery connector. They are easily found, what I ended up doing is soldering a bunch of 1s together in pairs, but you can also get a Y harness from Horizon that will allow you to simply plug in 2 1s cells from your other micros.
