This is my Second Flight with the E-flite UMX Citation Longitude Twin 30mm EDF BNF Basic.

E-flite UMX Citation Longitude Twin 30mm EDF BNF Basic Second Flight (5 min 0 sec)

Here are my Review Notes for this E-flite UM EDF Citation Jet:

Pros:
- Lots of lights all over it
- 3S Brushless Twin 30mm EDF's
- Chromed out plastic on the EDF inlets
- Plastic bits on the wingtips
- I will use it as a nice warm-up jet, perfect to slide into my car on the days I fly big jets like the E-flite Su-30 EDF Jet.

Cons:
- Dented foam on the main wing
- One of the mains was bent out of the box, but easily fixable
- Some glue leaked onto the silver part of the chromed out plastic on the EDF inlets
