This is GBLynden's E-flite UMX Turbo Timber Flight Review In Strong Wind With Bonus Footage.

GBLynden's E-flite UMX Turbo Timber Flight Review In Strong Wind With Bonus Footage (3 min 33 sec)

Here are my Review Notes for this E-flite UM Turbo Timber:

Pros:
- Even with I prop I bent without knowing it before the maiden, it still flew really well!
- Wheel plastic piece update over the first E-flite UMX Timber
- It has a 3-bladed prop like the E-flite UMX Cirrus
- A higher 3400kv brushless motor comes with it for more power
- The plane can fly with 550ís as seen in some of my videos.
- Its lights all over the plane are awesome!
- The new chipset they use in this Timber UM allows for telemetry, just not the new advanced Smart Telemetry!

Cons:
- Longer nose compared to the original UMX Timber.
- Shorter flight times compared to the Ultra Micro Timber.

Here are my Review Notes for this E-flite UM Ultrix:

- You can add lights
- It comes in a small box, perfect to slide in your car on the days you fly big jets like the E-flite Su-30.

Cons:
- It is really small, but I could still see its orientation well overall
- No wheels

This video is a detailed Maiden Flight Review Of The E-flite Su-30 Twin 70mm EDF Jet.

Maiden Flight Review Of The E-flite Su-30 Twin 70mm EDF Jet (6 min 43 sec)

Pros:
- The assembly was straight forward & the manual was helpful
- Tear-down will be easy at the field for easy transport
- The paint job has really nice detail with little to no over spray
- Its bright lights really stand out
- The air brake is a really cool functional scale touch
- Rugged retracts with good suspension are great!
- It flys really well overall

Cons:
- For those of us trying to transport it in smaller cars, the little antennas already added on have to potential to cause headaches
- The tail piece that slides in by the exhaust should have come magnetic out of the box like the nose cone for easier transport. However, I was able to easily mod that.
- One elevator side moved easier than the other. The right one was catching and needed some sanding on the friction points to work with symmetry. You mileage may vary
- The flight times are short, as expected for something like this
