Introduction

ICON IN THE MAKING

Designed to redefine the super-midsize private jet segment, the Cessna Citation Longitude is expected to revolutionize business travel by offering more range (up to 3500 nautical miles) while carrying greater payloads at higher cruise speeds (up to 550+ MPH). The E-flite® UMX™ (Ultra Micro eXtreme) Citation Longitude is an officially-licensed scale replica of the icon in the making that redefines performance for ultra micro class EDF jets by being the most powerful model in its class yet. With 3S-compatible 30mm EDF power systems, a scale outline and trim scheme, plus functional features including a full-flying stab and LED lights along with exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies, it offers a unique and exciting twin EDF experience – in a size that makes it possible to fly a jet in more places and smaller spaces including at soccer fields, football fields and large parks!

Overview

A UNIQUE TWIN EDF EXPERIENCE

The E-flite® UMX™ (Ultra Micro eXtreme) Citation Longitude makes it easier for more pilots to enjoy a unique and exciting twin EDF jet experience in more places than ever before! Equipped with 3S-compatible brushless outrunner motors and 30mm fans, the UMX Citation Longitude offers more speed and vertical performance than other ultra micro class EDF jet models – and longer-than-average flight times when using the recommended 3S 800mAh LiPo batteries (sold separately). It’s less complex and easier to fly than larger EDF models, and because it’s equipped with exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies, it’s a great choice for your first or next twin-powered jet. It has a scale outline and trim scheme that are officially-licensed by Cessna, plus functional features including a full-flying stab and LED navigation and landing lights. Take off from and land on smooth surfaces using the included landing gear with a steerable nosewheel, or quickly and easily remove the landing gear for launching by hand and landing on grass. With its convenient ultra micro size the UMX Citation Longitude Twin 30mm EDF is right at home at a wide variety of suitably-sized sites including soccer fields, football fields, large parks, and RC flying fields. Best of all it arrives 100% factory-assembled and ready to bind to a compatible 5+ channel Spektrum DSMX/DSM2 equipped transmitter so you can be flying within minutes of opening the box that can also be used for safe and convenient storage and transport!

Exclusive Technologies This model comes equipped with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you’re flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch.

Higher Performance The factory-installed twin brushless power systems feature larger diameter 30mm fans with more powerful 3S-compatible outrunner motors. This upgraded power system setup delivers higher performance than the 28mm fans and 2S-compatible motors installed in previous UMX™ models to offer unmatched speed and vertical performance, plus longer-than-average EDF flight times when using the recommended 3S 800mAh LiPo batteries (sold separately).

Functional Features Realistic-looking LED navigation and landing lights plus a full-flying stab are functional features that take your scale flying experience to another level.

Officially-Licensed Modeled after the full-scale Cessna business and private jet, the UMX™ Citation Longitude features a factory-applied paint and decal finish that offers a scale look you’ll be proud to show off everywhere you go.

Fully-Factory Assembled The UMX™ Citation Longitude 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 5+ 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. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

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.

An airliner (Boeing Dreamliner or Airbus 320 etc.).

Or a business jet (maybe Cessna Citation).

Me-262... I wish!! But I believe it's been confirmed that it's a civilian model, so that rules out both of those.

At first I thought it was going to be a new and improved UMX A-10, but with this whole civilian model speculation thing...

Can you confirm that's it's going to be a civilian model, Jason? Someone quoted you on that statement a few days ago, from FB.
