New UMX Turbo Timber

The E-flite UMX Turbo Timber updates the original Timber with new features and more power - resulting in extreme aerobatic performance and incredible STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) capability in addition to legendary fly-anywhere versatility. 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 (sold separately) — 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!

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
  • Updated turboprop-styled nose, 3-blade prop and trim scheme
  • Updated landing gear design to secure fairings to fuselage
  • Functional oversized flaps for shorter takeoffs and landings
  • Industry-leading Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMX® technology
  • Easy to fly with optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection
  • Unmatched stability and locked-in feel of AS3X® technology for smoother flight performance
  • Optional-use leading edge slats for improved STOL and slow flight performance
  • Functional and factory-installed LED landing, navigation and strobe lights
  • Optional floats for flying from water (sold separately)
  • Fully factory-assembled and ready to fly right out the box

Your batteries are new, but are they defective, or your charger didn't fully charge them?
The pulsating motor is typical of an ESC providing an audible warning of impending low voltage cutoff.

Does your charger show voltage of the battery?

Let see: I'm using an older Triton Charger at 0.3 amps 7.4 volts. Shows 7.69 at start. 30 min later charge ends at 8.31 Looks ok I will try the new batteries in my old original Timber to see if I get the same results...Thanks, Jack

The "new" batteries might be old, fake or defective ones if you bought them from ebay or Amazon.

When a 2-cells Li-PO battery reaches 8.40V then it is about 70% charged and needs more charging time to finish charging. It will still be 8.40V when fully charged but it will have more charge current in it.

That's because the 8.4V at 70% charged is the "pushing" voltage at the charger. If you took that pack off the charger and measured its voltage with an accurate device, the no-load voltage will be less than 8.4V.

Only when the battery is fully charged, the battery no-load voltage will be exactly 8.4V (assuming you have a proper charger).

cold weather can do this also. Batteries like to be warm. Many times I've went out to test or video something only to hit LVC in a matter of seconds after takeoff,.. because the battery is cold. Warm them up and everythings fine.

Is the E-Flite Turbo Timber based on any real bush plane?

This is my next airplane. It's such a break-out hit. About time I got one.

Btw, if you guys haven't seen the shortest landing by a bush plane video, (I mean everybody has, but IF you haven't) omg check it out:
STOL World Record Shortest Landing 9 Feet 5 Inches (3 min 8 sec)

This guy in a 'slightly' modified Cub makes a 10-footer then another guy beats that! Crazy.
