BTW, went on wholesale trains, got as far as them asking to me to put in my CC info, and press "continue"...


...Um, no. I'm not giving anyone payment info, before they give me a shipping quote, lol.

Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if we see a new PNP UMX Beast skew in the $100 range, similar to the UMX Profile Extra. The release of the stryker and sbach mean the Beast will have to leverage a low price point to stay relevant. I'd personally Jump at a $100 PNP beast, as I plan to run single cell batteries in series for all my UM's, and have no need for the stock batt/charger.

Why wait for a PNP (which is not coming) when you can get a BNF at that price today?

The Beast for 99 $ is the best deal on any UM micro there is !! It is a great plane and I am going to pass on this one. I have my "happy micro" hanger and just dont see where this one fits. MSR for in the house, Beast and Sbach for the field. Gonna sell Corsair to a guy at my field as I hardly fly it and my 120 SR heli that is still broken.

that UM Stryker is going to be the hell of a micro FPV plane

ps: some micros are better than others and the beast is indeed an excellent one "stock".

Thanks for sharing. Great video. I always enjoy hearing QQ talk about his planes. This one looks to be a "must have" for me.

That is a good point Dave! I'd have taken the plane sans batt and charger at that price.

Should hold me over nicely till the Stryker comes out.

As a owner of the full size F-27Q, and based on the videos so far, I also agree that it does look like it does fly SO MUCH like the real one, it's scary. What's the limit now? Next step, the ultra-nano series (a sub 10" Stryker?).

Would like to know what is the average flight time with the stock battery and if you use a Y connector for the rudders or not?

Do you think this stryker will handle the wind much better than other micros? I'm guessing it will because the larger one handles the wind so well.
