Overview

The E-flite® UMX™ Spacewalker airplane is all about making the pure joy of RC flight possible within the serenity of small spaces – even in your own backyard. Its scale appearance captures the charm and sense of adventure of those who labored over full-size homebuilt airplanes much like it. That’s because it includes exquisite detailing such as molded wing ribs, exposed engine cylinders and a pilot figure proudly poised in the open cockpit. But it’s the slow-flight capability and simple 3-channel performance that will have you wanting to keep a number of charged micro batteries on hand.

When you love flying ultra micro RC aircraft, you tend to see your surroundings a little differently. Backyards, picnic tables, parking lots and driveways suddenly reveal themselves to be great flying fields or runways. E-flite® UMX™ airplanes let you fly in your world as you see it with minimal fuss. Each one is designed to get you in the air in the time it takes to charge a battery. And because all UMX aircraft use advanced 2.4GHz Spektrum™ DSM2®/DSMX® technology, you’ll never have to worry about interference and can enjoy the freedom of flying them with a wide variety of available DSM2/DSMX transmitters.

This Bind-N-Fly® UMX™ Spacewalker airplane comes out of the box completely assembled as shown. Although it has the performance to climb and loop, it’s the smooth slow-flight characteristics that are as charming on the model as they are on the full-size version.

UMX™ Design
A fully assembled ultra micro design that’s engineered with the finest materials and equipped with cutting-edge components to deliver best-in-class performance.

Rechargeable Battery & Cordless Charger
The included rechargeable ultra micro 70mAh 1S 3.7V Li-Po battery is capable of delivering 5-9 minute flight times. The included 1-cell DC charger can recharge the provided battery in about 20-minutes.

This looks great! I really like the look of the retro planes.

They really are coming out with alot of great models. They might just have to setup automatic payroll deduction for customers

Looks great! Our club has about 5 Champs for indoor use and we were waiting for horizon to come out with a new 3 channel micro for basketball court flying! I just hope that she flys nice like the Champs or the Parkzone Cessna 210... not nasty like the Parkzone Cubs... Also, what's up with the 70mAh battery?!?! all the other micros run on 150 mAh! Could one run this plane on a 150 mAh battery and get twice the flight time?

I'm sure it will take a 150mah just fine.

I fly a Champ on every outing, no matter what else I fly. I have flown mine in 12 mph winds ( something many say can not be done....not something I recommend to do, but it right conditions it can be done )

I get 17-20 minute flight times with the 150mAh 1S 3.7V 45C LiPo Battery in a Champ

This spacewalker looks cool, wonder if it will be as nice as the Champ ?

Looks like one to consider.......hummmm....

+1

I cut my RC teeth flying a Champ in the wind. Until it looked like a dog's chew toy.

This brings on deja vu.........

BTW, does this continue the discussion of what makes a model an E-flite?

For ultra-micros, we've decided it's just easier to put them all in one brand. Everybody seems to know them as UMX, so we picked E-flite. Going forward that's where you'll find all our ultra-micros.

Gotta back you up on that statement! I am AMAZED at how my Champ can handle STUPID strength winds! Just wiggle the rudder and elevator, and she just keeps flyin!
