I think this is at the top of my list of the new UMX planes coming out. I love my Radian Pro but it would be nice to have something I could fly from the small HS field that is a couple blocks away. I wonder of PZ might be working on a large version of this plane, as it seems HH has some dual versions of things now (PZ Spit/UM Spit, PZ Albatros/E-Flite Albatros).

Dave, kudos for the big new product bonanza

The new ASK-21 looks fab, but unless the metric version is not an Ultra Micro but a Hyper Nano, then the wing area spec should be corrected from 520 sq. mm to 520 sq. cm

Btw. I'm saving my DLG budget for the 2-piece wing 1500mm DLG HH will be so kind to roll out soon

The same goes for the UM Dornier Do 335 with flaps

And of course the UM air combat module, what will turn UM flying in the park into murderous social event (imagine how many new buyers you'll get)

Thanks again for the awesome offerings

Could I tow this with my Champ?


Wait a Second, the micro cub looks even better. I might kiss my Champ goodbye and get that cub! HH you are AMAZING and you are emptying my wallet!

That would be a stretch, if possible at all. But if you guttered a 2S BL setup, I believe the Chap airframe would be up to the job, even though ailerons would make it a lot more comfortable.

[QUOTE=RealGambler;20603918]Do you remove the wings to put it in a box, or is it the largest box ever?....Wondering if there's a brushed esc on board. If that's the case, then, it could pobably go staight into any old UMs for a AS3X conversion, particularly if it's programmable.

"Removable one-piece wing with high efficiency airfoil"

I can't wait to get some stick -time with ASK. A massive double- dip slope that faces into the wind sits 30 yards out of the front door.....

This is a list of HH releases for this year - taken from the HH UK site but USA and UK releases are normally close together with HH. Note there's no Hurricane there, or is that counted as already released?

Nice list! Can't believe that they are not releasing the glider and the Cub together. March and May????? What a mistake! Still think they should release them together and give us a small discount if we buy both at the same time! Already have two friends who are willing to fly the Cub to get the Glider up (and vice-versa)

I'm wondering about wind penetration. It's been a very long time since I worried about penetration.

Lol - is that because you've no need to worry or because you've forgotten why it mattered!

I think the UMX 3DBeast may have a more powerful motor but its a "draggy" bipe and that has no problem achieving the sort of penetration that matters to a bipe in the winds I've been flying in - 12-15 mph.

Well, this is a good point. What makes my Alula fabulous is the ease ballast can be added and removed, right on the CG. Slope soar in 10 m/s at noon, and DLG in last strays of the sun.
The AS3X is really a nice aspect, removing some of the excess drama from the catapult launches and letting novices deal with gusts, but in terms of wind penetration does nada. Hope HH thought of a ballast system..

NO!!!! If I get any more micro planes in boxes I will have walled myself in. Just fabulous stuff. Horizon is really sewing up the Micro market. Hopefully my Gee Bee will be here this month.

Rick,

We need to get these! Then we can do an aerotowing demo at the Buzzards fun-fly this summer, and wow 'em with what micros can do. I'll get the glider, if you get the Sport Cub! FUN!!!

Don.
