How about UMX A400M powered by 4 geared UMX 3000Kv motors swinging scale scimitar props? With all of the bells & whistles, of course!

Ever seen one do a split-S? Check this out!

Airbus A400M Head-On Takeoff & Aerobatic Moves. (3 min 29 sec)


And speaking of the Mosquito, here are a couple of cool clips. Gotta love the sweet music of those twin Merlins at full-song!

Fast passes down on the deck:

WW2 Mosquito fighter-bomber at low level (4 min 15 sec)


From the cockpit:

Flying DH Mosquito KA114. (16 min 21 sec)

Turbo:

I think you hit on it. Re-issue the UMX Mosquito only add the sound of those sweet Merlin 28's singing (Sound Board). I'd even pay a little more than the $ 99.99 for it. As long as it's reasonable!!

Nothing better than a pair of Merlin's under full power!

I agree on the A400M, but I also want a C130J or C17

Yup, the A400M is alright, but it's no Hercules....

Yeah, I'd definitely go for a Super Herc!

I'd also go for a Spartan. Ever seen one do a full roll? How about a loop?

Alenia C-27J Barrel Roll & Backflip (2 min 50 sec)

Jack,

A UMX Mossie with audio would be very cool! The tough part would be getting enough bottom-end from such a small speaker & enclosure to do the Merlins justice (would need a very long-throw piston-type speaker driven by a fair amount of power in order to move enough air), powering a large enough amp to do the job, and carrying the added weight. Probably just barely doable in PZ's larger version, but not at UMX-scale - at least not with current technology. I'd still be very happy with a UMX version powered by a pair of geared 3000Kv UMX motors swinging scale props, with a proper airfoil, flaps, and retracts.

I want a Focke Wulf FW-190 Butcher Bird with dirty exhaust stains on the right side and a black eagle head painted on the left side. I'll show Meg what's up.

The Airbus A400M seemed to takeoff, fly and land much slower than the Herc.
I think they cheated a little. I betcha it was almost empty but actually was full of helium.

Joel,

I thought you'd slipped up there, I was just about to say that looks more like a Transall than a Hercules, but then I thought I'd better Google what the eck a Spartan was...

Still prefer a Herc!!

Yes this would even in 1/48 scale the biggest "Ultra Micro" with almost 90cm wingspan
