This was the fastest UMX or ultra micro RC Flight I have ever had up until this past weekend. It was the result of a 180mAh Hyperion 3S Babble Batt fueling my E-flite UMX P-47 Thunderbolt WWII Warbird RC Plane in a quick but very spirited flight that John and I captured on video, with the help of our assistant Will

This the first outdoor flight for me with the new Syma X9 Flying Car Quadcopter. It is very unique RC to see and fly! Check out this video and see how much fun I had with it!

This is my E-flite UMX J-3 Cub BNF Basic RC Plane Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review video. I unbox the plane and go over a few things, including comparing the size of this RC Aircraft to the legendary Hobbyzone Champ Ultra Micro and the very popular Parkzone Ultra Micro P-51 Mustang. I also put it in the air for the first time and share my post maiden flight thoughts to wrap up this video.

Overall I am pretty happy with how the maiden went. It flies close to as well as my E-flite UMX Pitts and my E-flite UMX P-47, which are my two best flying 2S micros. The main difference is that like the P-47, I had to make some adjustments after the maiden to really dial it in with the CG. Look for the second flight video with speed tests coming soon!

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Scale looks
- Wide CG range
- Smooth gentle flight
- Plenty of power
- Flies like a bigger more powerful 4-channel Hobbyzone Champ

Cons:
- Dents and dings to the wing and bottom of fuse were bad
- Battery hatch magnet is only taped in. That came loose when testing the CG before the maiden.

This is the Maiden Flight video for my E-flite UMX J-3 Cub BNF Basic.

Overall I am pretty happy with how the maiden went. It flies close to as well as my E-flite UMX Pitts and my E-flite UMX P-47, which are my two best flying 2S micros. The main difference is that like the P-47, I had to make some adjustments after the maiden to really dial it in with the CG.

Enjoy!

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- A lot of fun
- Files well for its weight
- Two flight modes
- Durable
- No integrated battery

Cons
- It needs more space to do funnels and other "tricks" than a typical quadcopter
- 5 minute flight times

Here is my unboxing guys, I hope you find it helpful. I did my best to compare it to two of my most popular ultra micros for a good size comparison as well as the basic unboxing things I normally touch on:

I got this Blade Nano QX 3D Drone BNF for Christmas from my sister & brother-in-law and WOW is it awesome!

I include a lot of detail AND some bloopers in this video as well, so if you have 14 minutes, this Unboxing, Maiden Flight, Review, and Bloopers might be well worth your time

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
Does flips
Durable so far
Three flight modes
Handles very smoothly
Battery is not integrated

Cons:
Proprietary battery
Props fly off randomly
The body is very weak
Front and backwards flips require lots of space

This is an awesome video of my buddy tearing up the sky with his FMS P-51 Mustang Tuskegee Airmen Red Tail.

This has to be one of if not the best videos I have ever uploaded to my channel. I have had this footage for over a month, but wanted to be sure I put the time required to edit this video to its full potential, and I think I did that

Enjoy!
