Have you ever tried the Hyp 2S 180 in early morning calm?
She is light and can harrier around beautifully.
Excellent fast & slow flight characteristics.
I always choose her over my Sbach.

Hey ya RC... No, I haven't had a chance to order some more batteries from ya yet. Saving up to get an Extreme Flight 60" Edge as soon as they come back in stock... But, your Hyp 2S 180s are on my list, near the top as soon as I get the EF Edge. I really like my 240s in both the Beast and Baby Stryker but I've been wanting to try yor 180s, for sure.

I'm hear to tell ya, I recently had on of my E-flite 180s take a dump on me and it's going in the bin. It only had like 10 flights on it that I know of. No big, just gives me a reason to go better with your 180s...

It was enjoyable, for sure but I can see where you're coming from. I think the extra weight saved would have been nice... Sometime in the future I want to get an UMX SBach as well. But, the bigger planes have my focus right now... Sure wish you would dabble in the bigger batteries..

You can set it
Turn on your tansmitter put throttle to full then plug in whatever UM you are flying that has BL motor listen for the tones then move throttle to mid point wait for tones move throttle back to full wait for the beeps 1st you get one beep wait and you will hear 2 beeps wait some more and 3 beeps wait some mre and 4 beeps once you hear the 4 beeps bring throttle to "Off" position wait for tones and unplug battery you will then be set for Strongest brake its a full 15 second wait to get to the 4 beeps. Remember you have to have the throttle at full wait for tones go to half throttle then back up to full and THEN wait through the three other settings it takes 15 seconds to get to the setting you want.

Nice tip! I've put the brake on mine now to help save the prop.

Once I've set the prop horizontal for landing how well does it glide? The book says to keep the power on all the way down to just before roundout

I just elevator in for most landings, no issues onto grass. Even gliding in and flaring last second works. I guess if your on a harder surface having the prop brake on might be useful but I've only flown over grass so been no need I could see.

I'm quite lucky to be able to fly at my gliding club, I have runways and grass!!

Not tried an elevator yet but that looks like fun - do you just pull back power off and mush it down?

Just cut the power and full elevator and it floats down. Can use a touch of rudder or aileron to steer it in if needed. Just keep full elevator right to touchdown. They are really simple to do. Works best with proper CG, if you are a bit nose heavy it wont come is as flat.

You can see a typical elevator at the end of my video at the 5:20 mark. (can't see to link directly to that time in the video as forum keeps embedding the player so just jump ahead)

Mine seems to balance on the fingergrips, is that about right? Usually the recommended settings are a bit nose heavy...

I believe it is around the mindpoint of the grips as per the manual. Full rate elevator can help too to keep it flat in the drop.

The CG is around the fingertips, but I'd be more precise about it, especially on these UM's. The manual states 67mm forward of the motor's firewall. This seems to work well.

67mm is that forward of the back of the firewall or the front

I forget. The manual has a picture. You may be joking, but the actually DO specify that.

I was jesting but I know about aerodynamics on full sized aircraft so yeah, I imagine these micros are very sensitive...
