Were you there? If not, you are speculating as to what the actual TAS was.

It looks like he is doing a harrier. His attitude looks way beyond stall. There may be an error in the ASI, but it's also probably way out of its normal operating range. His static pitot may actually be taking air in at that angle, negating it's normal static reading,

Also, the little flap thing on the dynamic pressure pitot that keeps bugs from crawling in is probably down since there is not enough airspeed to flip it up.

Mcross,

I wasn't there. But then, I wasn't speculating, either. I didn't choose the word 'hover' in the video title. Presumably, either the camera guy or the aircraft manufacturer did.

I'm aware of that plane. It made a real, and I mean real brief introduction by Nitroplanes. They never followed thru. Again, it makes me wonder if it's due to patents by Horizon. Also makes me wonder if HK will be offering micro and orange rx's with their own version of AS3X?

I personally cannot get myself to fly a non AS3X micro anymore (with the exception of my UM Stryker, it's my early morning/early evening flyer). Flying a non-AS3x would be like going back to watching a standard TV with a rotary channel knob.

Anyhow, it's fun to watch a company take a leap of fatih and score big. What a lead Horizon has taken.

Keep an eye on that UMX Geebee thread......

FYI, some of us do prefer cars with manual steering and manual transmission and manual windows with no antilock brakes, no traction control and if I could get them no airbags. I could easily live without power locks and never use the AC in my car because with the small engines I drive it really impacts the fuel mileage. The vacuum assist brakes are nice but I would probably adjust to no assist if any car offered it, works just fine on my motorcycle.

That said the gyro technology offered in these planes is interesting, I can't say one way or the other because I don't own a plane that offers it. I would probably like it.

This plane looks like a real winner for HH... and I really want one.

I like the idea of AS3X - it's a great idea to build planes that can be flown from any mid-sized park but flies like a much bigger plane. Add in the built-in lighting and the float set, and this little baby seems like a really versatile and fun bird.

HH has the right idea here - build UM-sized planes that you can fly over your lunch break and fit in a small car, but are still fun to fly even in less-than-ideal conditions. It sounds like they've got that sweet spot down pat.

I'd been thinking of getting the full-size Icon A5, but this bird is really tempting me. If this flies as well as it looks like it does, it's gonna be a real winner.

Damn, HH is really dominating the UM space these days - and will probably also be dominating my wallet too...

Same here 'til I read the Icon thread, looks like everyone is talking about "tail wag" transitioning from high speed to low speed. Might want to take a peek over at that thread before you buy. But I want this Carbon Cub SS right now!!! I'll also take that ASK-21, if I can just figure out how to fly both at the same time so I can tow the glider up to altitude!

I have that exact same problem. after we get them why don't you stop by my house in the evenings and we can fly together.

i had to pass on the last three as3x micros to come out( nothing exciting for me), but this thing is what i have been waiting for! Its awesome, and more than what i expected from HH for a micro bushplane with flaps. The lights are awesome and i love the color scheme. I am so tired of seeing yellow cubs, they just bore me anymore... I think that they could have made it a bit lighter, but i think it will still fly great, especially with the AS3X tech. Very cool and i will have one. This is the only plane to come out that has actually excited me. Love the glider towing.. i wouldn't have even thought of that. Nice one HH!
