My email address is jr854@cox.net.
I would really appreciate it very much so. I am fairly new to rc aircraft.
Thanks,

Do you use a hobby grade charger with banana jacks?
If so, go with this charge harness:
Six-port (2S) parallel JST-PH charge & balance harness.
$8.95

It can charge from 1 to 6 (2S) UMX batts at a time.

Midsize batt for the UMX Timber?

I would start with this:

BB Hyp (2S) 330mAh RTF 50C max w/UMX connector.
$14.95

Shoot me a PM anytime to order:

I got mine tonight . I did the tiny bit of setup the manual calls for but haven't bound it to thr dx9 because I let the battery get a little more discharged than I like and it is almost 1 am
Do you not have to do any TX programming for the flaps.
Looking forward to flying tomorrow

I finally got a chance to run Rogers 330mah 2s batteries that I just bought thru my planes wow why did I wait so long to buy them. The most impressive was when I put it into my non safe umx Habu the change in its vertical performance was dramatic. It may not be be unlimited vertical but it got small fast and let's it do huge powered loops. Thanks Roger you da man.

Curious if any of you have recommendations for storage and transport of these little 2s and 3s batteries? I usually just carry them loosely, but my OCD makes me think they should be better taken care of.

Flying (2S) UMX planes on (3S) BabbelBatts:


I've been flying 3S batts in my UMX planes for over 5 years.
Love it!!!

Static motor testing should be done with short bursts only.
Long static motor run times will almost always trigger OCP.
Test 3S batts in flight.
Take-off at half throttle until you get some altitude.
If OCP (over current protection) kicks in, just lower the throttle stick to idle for 1 sec and throttle back up.

Additional air-flow over the brick helps greatly!

Balance the prop & spinner assembly.

Flying in cool temps makes a big difference.

Use throttle management.

If OCP is a problem, install a lower Kv motor and/or prop down.

Roger

ps...Twin 3000Kv motors on 3S power.
I'm very excited to fly the new UMX Aero Commander!!!
