E-Flite UMX Aero Commander 2nd Flight - Oct. 26, 2017 (4 min 16 sec)

The UMX Aero Commander arrived this afternoon and my daughter and I were pumped! First impression...the dang box is BIG!!

We immediately opened it up with camera in hand and were blown away. I put two flights on it with two 7.4V 850mAh Graphene packs. With mixed throttle I flew for approximately 6 1/2 minutes and had approximately 45% remain...though I was in the power a bunch! One word...AWESOME!!!

The model is having one issue with the elevator servo moving uncommanded/jumping on the ground and in the air about every minute or so. I still flew it and will get with Horizon to see if this can be done to resolve the issue.

Outstanding job by the Horizon Team!
