The NEW E-flite UMX Turbo Timber BNF Basic...Evolution of a UMX Icon!

Introduction

EVOLUTION OF AN ICON

Scaled down from the legendary Timber® 1.5m, the E-flite® UMX™ Timber was the iconic ultra micro model best-equipped for exciting STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) adventures and beyond…until now. The UMX Turbo Timber updates the original design with a modern turboprop-styled nose and 3-blade propeller, plus a higher-power 3400Kv brushless motor. When using the same 2S 280mAh batteries, this Turbo version provides even better STOL performance with shorter takeoffs and faster climbs. You’ll also enjoy extreme aerobatic capabilities and have the power to hover, then climb out vertically. In the hands of experienced pilots, the UMX Turbo Timber can be flown in more places — even off of water with the optional floats (EFLUA1190, not included) — and in smaller spaces. Plus its high-wing configuration and exclusive optional-use SAFE® Select technology provide plenty of stability to make the UMX Turbo Timber a great choice if you’ve mastered flying at least one model before. This makes it a model that pretty much every pilot, from low-time to long-time experienced alike, should own because everyone will enjoy flying it!

Overview

MORE POWER AND VERSATILITY

At the heart of the iconic UMX™ Timber® model’s evolution into the UMX Turbo Timber® is the addition of a 3400Kv motor and a 3-blade prop. Always known as and still an easy-to-fly, smooth handling, STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) capable airplane, it now has the thrust — with the same 2S 280mAh batteries — to hover and climb out vertically. It can also perform inverted flight, knife edge, snaps, spins and other advanced aerobatic maneuvers with ease. Functional oversized flaps, plus optional-use leading edge slats, offer improved STOL and slow flight performance. Equipped with oversized tundra-style wheels like its predecessor, the UMX Turbo Timber can take off and land on grass and other rough surfaces better than ever before due to the updated landing gear design that secures the fairings to the fuselage. Experienced pilots can fly it indoors in spaces as small as a single basketball court, and almost anyone who’s mastered flying at least one other airplane before can fly it successfully outdoors in large yards, small parks, sports fields, at RC flying fields and many other places. Install the optional floats (EFLUA1190, not included) and you can add large pools, small ponds, and lakes to your flying site options. Included LED landing, navigation and simulated strobe lights add to the fun and make it possible to fly from earlier to even later in the day. Best of all the UMX Turbo Timber arrives 100% factory-assembled — and is ready to fly as soon as you bind the installed Spektrum™ receiver to your compatible transmitter!

More Power
A more powerful 3400Kv motor and 3-blade prop deliver an abundance of power with popular 2S 280mAh batteries, including the thrust to hover and climb out vertically.

Versatile Gear Options
Fly off of surfaces that are impossible for most models of this size to handle: grass, gravel paths, dirt trails, paved surfaces — even pools, ponds and lakes using optional floats (EFLAU1190, sold separately). The updated landing gear has fairings that are secured to the fuselage and oversized, tundra-style wheels to soak up bumps and provide excellent prop clearance.

STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) Capable
The UMX Turbo Timber’s wing is designed with features like drooped wingtips, functional oversized flaps, and to accept optional-use leading edge slats (included) for improved slow flight and STOL performance. These features, along with the lightweight design and high-power brushless motor, make it possible to spring into the air or float down to land in less distance than any other similar class model.

LED Lights
Like the original UMX Timber, the Turbo Timber comes with realistic-looking LED landing, navigation and simulated strobe lights that are factory-installed and powered from the flight battery.

Fully Factory-Assembled
The UMX Turbo Timber arrives 100% factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box. It's equipped with industry-leading Spektrum® 2.4GHz technology that binds to your 6+ channel DSMX®/DSM2® equipped transmitter so you can be flying within minutes of opening the box.

Bind-N-Fly® Completion Level Advantage
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence so you enjoy a sense of stability and precision that makes it feel like you're flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
• These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling
• The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It’s also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Programming Required
• The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any complex programming and takes just a few seconds.

Key Features
• Incredible Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) plus sport and aerobatic flight capabilities
• Uniquely capable and versatile so it can be flown in more places and smaller spaces
• More powerful 3400Kv motor for the power to hover and climb out vertically

The original UMX Timber already had larger flaps and ailerons relative to the original Timber 1.5m it was scaled from, so we kept them (and the wing overall, less the decals) the same for the UMX Turbo Timber. So the major differences are the nose shape, the 3400Kv motor and 3-blade prop that now deliver unlimited vertical with the same 2S 280mAh batteries, an updated landing gear design that secures the fairings to the fuselage...plus a new control unit that includes the latest chip set to deliver real-time overall battery voltage telemetry to compatible Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/3 and 8 G2, the DX9, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.

Yes, they’re included in the box and still optional to install/use just like the original UMX Timber.

Still loving my original UMX Timber, which goes every session, but it’s clear what the inevitable replacement/upgrade will be. Well done!

Being a mostly 3D guy i never found the umx timber to be enough power. i flew one and after that I was glad i never picked one up. I always like more power. This one should be fun..
Jason or anyone at horizon Hobby can you tell us if the color scheme is painted on or stickers? My umx ultrix i was going to rip off the bottom stickers and they seem to be paint and not stickers.
Can't wait, I have plenty of nano tech 300mah packs ready for this plane.. guess my other umx planes (Beast,habu,f27 wont get flown much after all)
