An Update to the UMX F-27

E-flite just announced an update to the UMX F-27 and it makes this new version the fastest prop-driven ultra micro plane around. They made it run on a 3S lipo to get more speed, power and thrills and it includes an AS3X receiver with optional-use SAFE Select technology. The stabilization tech inside smoothes the plane out making it easy and fun to fly for nearly any skill level. Even though it can be super fast, it will also be able to slow down to a crawl for just cruising around the field.

If you like easy to transport micro planes and want something a little faster and more aggressive, you'll want to check this one out. It's available for pre-order on Horizon's site right now for just $99 BNF with expected shipments due to arrive in mid August.

Just a heads-up that the "What's in the box?" data needs to be updated on the web page. https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...elect-eflu4250

Are you joking? Of course it won't be as fast as the V900 which is advertised to hit 100mph on 3S and 120mph on 4S.
I am hoping that a UMX V900 will soon follow the big one with a similar power setup as this UMX F-27.

I'm very excited about the 3S option!!
(It's about time!)
I burned up two boards trying to get my original UM F-27Q Stryker 180 to fly on 3S batts.

"The E-flite UMX F-27 Evolution is the fastest prop-driven ultra-micro airplane yet!
It’s also the first 3S-compatible UMX model and is evolved to deliver more fun with durable EPO construction, AS3X and SAFE Select at a price that can’t be beat!"

YES & YES!!^^

Lack of twin rudders is a big downer but I can learn to live with that.

HH,

Red JST conn.

I suppose you had no other choice?
Installing a UMX conn on a 3S batt would be a bit...insane!

Great time to get back into the hobby it seems.

The most fun plane I've ever owned is a Stryker, and I love all things UMX, so I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

I can't believe there's no rudders. I love doing flat spins with my older one. However, it'll make a VERY nice FPV platform.
