As much as I like my big PZ Spit I think I'm going to pass on any more of the brushed 1S UM planes. The three I have almost never get flown. I also have the UMX Beast (a bit to damaged to fly) and the Sbach which is a blast. The new UMX Cub and Glider, along with the Mig, are all very tempting though.

Hmmmm. I was pretty exited until I saw the 8.5mm brushed motor. Ive had a lot of planes with this motor, and while they were good for their time, I cant say it puts out to much. I would have rather the 180 brushless in this one. Now I have to choose between an underpowered version of my all time favorite plane or the sick looking mig 15, or maybe the cub with floats, that could be fun at my cabin. Huh. I don't know which one!

I'm with you there.

Horizon has a pattern of scaling down a plane and then surprising us with something new.

This is the scale down, and the something new is... the Ask-21... which no one will buy.... so there always next Fall.

Hmmm....that is interesting.

This bird weighs more than the UM F4U, which is, quite frankly, a dog with the scale 3-blade prop. The Spit appears to have much stronger vertical performance than the stock F4U. I wonder if they gave it a proper airfoil?

No proper airfoil, undercambered, i think these um warbirds would be too fast with a semi-symmetrical wing.
Joel,
as has been noted, performance varies with these cheap pager motors, yours had lackluster performance until you added a hyp and a 5043, mine is strong enough to do a scale loop from a low speed aborted landing attempt, so some will be powerful, other will lack a bit, its probably worth it to buy an extra motor so you make sure you get one with ok power.
Also, ive noticed the 3 blade prop has great torque(my corsair and mossie have amazing vertical for a brushed airplane) but less speed than the two blades, so im expecting this 4 blade to have great low end power to haul all that wieght, but have a lower top speed, which i think is much better than being fast but having little power to climb.
