Parkzone UM Icon with ASX3

http://www.parkzone.com/Products/Def...rodID=PKZU2380

Kinda cool if you have some flat water nearby. Also kinda expensive, compared to the other UM planes...

Edit: It has a BRUSHLESS motor and a 2S 180mAh battery! Finally, an Ultra Micro with a vastly improved power system! Way to listen to your customers, Parkzone! Now bring on the warbirds, with the same power system!

The ICON A5 is more than an airplane. It’s a bold return to the roots of aviation; to a time when people flew for adventure, not merely to get from A to B. Now you can boldly fly wherever adventure waits with this thrilling Ultra Micro Series version of the ICON A5 aircraft.

Officially licensed by ICON Aircraft, it boasts an accurate scale outline, numerous details and an authentic trim scheme. Its specially shaped hull makes taking off and landing on water remarkably easy to master if you’ve never flown an RC seaplane before. If you want to go from pond to pavement, you can do so in minutes with the quick-mounting landing gear that’s included.

This versatility, combined with its potent brushless motor and AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) technology, makes for one of the most rewarding flying experiences you’ll ever have. AS3X technology works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of forces like P-factor, turbulence and torque. Instead of an ultra micro, you’ll feel like you’re at the controls of a larger, expertly-tuned model that flies like it’s on rails.

ParkZone® DSM2®/DSMX® receiver/ESC/AS3X unit, installed

This one is actually interesting for me. They finally put some wingspan in one of these. I want to see it fly. A bit pricey, but $10 less than the yak they just came out with.

Not sure it should be classified as ultra micro, maybe a park flyer.

This looks perfect for flying off of my boat. Forget fishing, I'll fly instead.

Flying on water is great fun. I am getting this one. It looks awesome, and the larger version handles on water very well.

I'm doomed. Financial solvency is pretty over-rated anyway.
