E-Flite UMX F4F Wildcat BNF Basic - It's now a real thing!


This is a pipe dream for now but I would absolutely love to see E-Flite release a UMX F4F Wildcat with AS3X. I had the large Parkzone version and just loved the look, the way it flew and the way it was designed. Who else would love a micro Wildcat? And if our dreams never come true, would anyone more advanced consider building one of their own?

If you'd love to see one be released, what details would you like to see?

*The below images are mock-ups only. For the actual plane becoming a real product go to page 9.
I would like to personally thank Horizon Hobby for taking this idea and making it a reality. Sometimes dreams do come true.

Wow Redhero, you've been registered here for 8 years and only now you are compelled to post! You must REALLY want a umx Wildcat! As do I!

As with most micros I think AS3X would be required for the Wildcat. It should be easy to go with a realistic 3 bladed prop too.

That's weird. When I quote your post it forces lower case characters and even though I typed BL in caps it forced those to lower case too.

Anyway, back on topic. I would LOVE a UMX wildcat. Retracts are out of the question at this size and weight but AS3X and a really nice scale body and paint job would be excellent!

Oh yes it would absolutely have to be brushless! 2S would be fine and I could use all my Sbach batteries.
