UMX Aero Commander


Am I first, no way? For all you Bob Hoovers out there, twin brushless as well,
the film clip even looks like it may be filmed in Australia, is that gum trees?

Wow that's weird up on an Australian Hobby shops site before it's on Hobby Horizons?
What's with that, maybe it's a date line thing because we see the new day first?

I couldn't find anything about it except your info. Still,this looks like a nice flying twin. Think it will be a hit. Hoping to get the umx Cessna 182 soon.

One of my dream plane, thank you Horizon. Now I just need a CESSNA 336/337 and a BRONCO.

On second viewing of the clip noticed some cricket nets in the corner of the park
she is flying over, 99% sure that is filmed in Oz.

It's a Modelflight video, not an E-flite video, so yeah, it's going to be in Adelaide somewhere.

Glad you guys are digging the new Aero Commander. It was a lot of fun to design and develop. I am sure it will exceed most expectations. Here is the official video

Bob Hoover repaint!

It looks great. I was actually going to start building the old Robbe Commander I have still NIB, but this is even better. I can leave the collector's item boxed and get this instead.

Now! Re-release the B-25 with brushless motors!

I did not had any request of sorts but that might change.

Amazing plane and performance. Very wide flight envelope.

Wait for some videos allowing to listen the three blades in sync....

Wow! Finally, a UMX bl twin prop-job! And an Aero Commander, no less! Looks like she has some SERIOUS GRUNT, along with some SERIOUS aerobatic chops!

Wonder who will be the first to do Bob's energy-management routine with it? Had the honor of watching the master himself, and meeting him afterward. Best stick-and-rudder pilot in the history of aviation, and an amazingly humble guy!

Kidding.... would like to have this one
