This is my maiden flight video with my new E-flite UMX Waco.

My normal cameraman John has been very sick, so my girlfriend helped me out and I am quite proud of how well she did on her first try at recording UMX RC Flight!

This is my unboxing and review of the new E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane with AS3X.

E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane (13 min 16 sec)

In this video I show the plane in detail and compare it to the original Parkzone F4F Wildcat Parkflyer, E-flite UMX P-51 Mustang, and the E-flite UMX P-47.

Pros:
- It has landing gear and can be belly landed
- Other than the defects on the main wing, it is a nicely finished plane
- It has a powerful 3,000kv 2S brushless motor
- The battery bay is large and provides easy access to this area

Cons:

- Mine had a lot of marks and a big ding all over the main wing making an otherwise beautiful plane look less than its best
- The elevator design is flawed causing tuning to make it ready for its maiden flight

This is my unboxing and review for the brand new E-flite UMX Waco RC Plane with AS3X and a 2S brushless motor from Horizon Hobby.

Unboxing Only - E-flite UMX Waco RC Plane with AS3X (9 min 2 sec)

In this video I go over the plane and compare it to my two other ultra micro biplanes or "bipes", the E-flite UMX PT-17 and E-Flite UMX Pitts S-1S.

Here is a list of pros and cons for this UMX RC Biplane:

Cons
- Its stickers were not applied very well
- The elevator has some asymmetry issues

Pros
- Looks great
- Nice size
- 2S brushless power
- Well built landing gear
