Introduction

Soon after it was introduced, the UMX™ Ultrix™ became one of our most popular ultra-micro models. There was, and still is, nothing else like it! The unique delta wing design excels at smooth sport flying, basic aerobatics, and even aggressive 3D — all in the same flight. This scaled-up version offers the same unique capabilities AND the advantages of a larger size. It’s easier to fly because it’s easier to see and handles more wind. The Ultrix 600mm also uses more common 3S 800–850+mAh batteries and includes an optional-use fixed nose wheel so it can takeoff from and land on smooth surfaces. Like the original, it has an incredible power-to-weight ratio for hovering capability and unlimited vertical performance. Differential thrust adds yaw control and the ability to perform advanced aerobatics including harriers, amazing flat spins, and more. Plus, the extremely durable EPP airframe is fully factory-assembled so the Ultrix can be ready to fly just minutes after you open the box!

Overview

MORE CAPABILITY AND VERSATILITY

The Ultrix™ 600mm is a smooth handling, extremely versatile delta wing aircraft with aerobatic and 3D capabilities you’d never expect based on its looks alone. Twin brushless motors deliver an incredible power-to-weight ratio that offers good speed, plenty of power to hover, and unlimited vertical performance. Differential thrust adds the ability to perform harriers, flat spins, and more amazing aerobatics. And extremely durable EPP construction makes it one of the toughest E-flite® models ever! An enlarged version of the popular UMX™ Ultrix, the Ultrix 600mm is easier to see and handles windy conditions even better, aided by exclusive AS3X® technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel. Optional-use SAFE® Select technology makes it easy even for low-time pilots to fly successfully in large yards, parks, sports fields, RC flying, and other fields. The included optional-use fixed nose wheel makes it possible to taxi, takeoff, and land on smooth surfaces. Or you can leave the nose wheel off for more speed and vertical performance plus easy hand launches over and landings on grass. Fully factory-assembled, the Ultrix 600mm is ready to fly within minutes of opening the box. Just add a 3S 800–850+mAh battery and bind it to a compatible Spektrum™ DSMX®/DSM2® equipped transmitter. It even delivers a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data – including battery voltage, current, and more – to compatible transmitters. You can also install the optional LED light kit (EFL02205, sold separately) for improved visibility during daylight conditions and to fly at night!

Exclusive Technologies This Ultrix™ is 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, making it easy to fly for low-time and experienced pilots alike.

Telemetry Capable The Ultrix™ is equipped with a control unit/flight controller that includes two ESCs and a Spektrum™ receiver that provides real-time flight battery voltage and other telemetry data to compatible Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, NX6, 8 and 10, the iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.

Uniquely Capable The unique, innovative design of the Ultrix™ makes it capable of smooth sport flying, basic aerobatics and even aggressive 3D flying — all in the same flight!

Twin Power Powerful twin brushless motors deliver an incredible power-to-weight ratio to provide the ability to hover plus unlimited vertical performance. Differential thrust offers yaw control and the ability to perform advanced aerobatic maneuvers including harriers, amazing flat spins and more.

High Performance The factory-installed twin brushless power system delivers excellent speed and unlimited vertical performance, plus longer-than-expected flight times when using the recommended 3S 800–850mAh LiPo batteries with an IC2® connector (or JST connector plus a suitable IC2 to JST adapter, including SPMXCA322, sold separately).

Durable Design The sleek and simple delta wing design is molded from lightweight yet extremely durable EPP, making the Ultrix™ one of our toughest aircraft ever.

Fully Factory Assembled The Ultrix™ arrives 100% factory-assembled and is ready to fly within minutes of opening 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 in almost no time.

Gear Options You can use the included fixed nose wheel to taxi, takeoff and land on smooth surfaces. Or you can leave the nose wheel off for more speed and vertical performance plus easy hand launches over and landings on grass.

Optional LED Lights Install the optional LED light kit (EFL02205) for improved visibility during daylight conditions and to fly in darker conditions or even at night.

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 an even 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.

Some additional notes:

• You can pre-order starting later today and the Coordinated Launch will be on 7/30/2021! This is the first day the Ultrix 600mm will be available in participating stores and will begin shipping to anyone who pre-orders from us directly.

• The Ultrix 600mm is only available in a BNF Basic version (EFL02250) and is priced at $199.99 in the US.

• The pole count of the motors is 12. This will need to be set in the “Smart ESC” menu under the “Telemetry” menu to show the motor RPM correctly in real time.

• The model and telemetry work with Smart AND non-Smart batteries...including the overall battery voltage telemetry!

• The Ultrix 600mm was originally intended and scaled up to fly with 3S 1300-2200mAh batteries. And while those batteries will fit/work, after a significant amount of flight testing we found it actually flew/performed best with lighter 3S 800-850mAh batteries...which still deliver unlimited vertical performance and flight times upwards of 10 minutes with mixed slow, sport and even 3D aerobatic flying! Those lighter batteries keep the weight/wing loading down, and that's why we decided to equip the model with an IC2 connector...the same connector that's installed on the recently released UMX A-10 and Blade 230 S Smart heli. The IC2 connector is new…it is NOT compatible with the old (but not common) EC2 connectors because it had to be made larger to fit the Smart wire lead/pin (unlike the IC3 and IC5 connectors that are directly compatible with their EC3 and EC5 counterparts). This means you will either need to use an IC2 to JST adapter (more info below) or the new 3S 850mAh 30C Smart G2 LiPo battery that comes with an IC2 connector on it:

https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...MX8503S30.html

Which can be charged on Smart chargers using this IC3 to IC2 adapter/charge lead (NOTE: As of today, 7/8/2021, these adapters are not in stock but we are having significant quantities sent by air freight to arrive before the Ultrix is launched on 7/30/2021):

https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...SPMXCA320.html

These batteries are not cheap, but they have very high quality cells, plus the G2 Smart chip and IC2 connector, so they do perform the absolute best overall.

However, those who already own 3S 600-1000mAh batteries with JST connectors on them (like batteries you may have used in the UMX A-10, the UMX Citation, Blade 230 heli, etc.) can use them in the Ultrix 600mm. Either remove the IC2 and replace it with a JST connector, or buy this IC2 Battery to JST Device adapter separately:

https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...SPMXCA322.html

And here are some lower cost 3S batteries with JSTs on them we also recommend:

1) Spektrum (non-Smart) 800mAh 3S 11.1V 50C LiPo with JST (Item No. SPMX8003SJ50) @ $19.99: https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...X8003SJ50.html

2) Onyx 11.1V 800mAh 3S 30C LiPo Battery with JST (Item No. ONXP8003S30JST) @ $13.99: https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...003S30JST.html

BTW, we’ll also be selling the IC2 connectors separately for those who want to install them on their own batteries, make their own adapters, charge leads, etc.:

• Connector: IC2 Battery (Set of 5) (Item No. SPMXCA324): https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...SPMXCA324.html

• Connector: IC2 Device (Set of 5) (Item No.SPMXCA325): https://www.horizonhobby.com/product...SPMXCA325.html

And again, it is possible to use some 3S 1300-2200mAh batteries in the Ultrix if you make a corresponding adapter or replace the IC2 accordingly.

Yes, yes, yes, very awesome Jason, we all said they needed to be a larger version of the UMX. it was my favorite plane for a very long time and the lights added to it made it even more fun and the funnest night plane i had.. Great to see this plane coming out.
Kinda in a funk right now with Air flight, but this might be the plane to make it exciting again.

I’m so glad they decided to make this one from EPP like the little one! Yesterday I was flying my UMX Ultrix slowly in and out and around a bunch of trees and went nose first directly into the trunk of one of them. No problem, just pick it up and keep on flying

Same here. I crashed mine into the top of a tree and used a very long pole taped to another very long pole to poke it out and it hit about 5 branches on the way down. Not a scratch. I carried on flying the remainder of the battery. I imagine with the larger size and inertia of this one it won't be quite as crash resistant but still leaps ahead of all my other planes.

A great looking aircraft


Arrives here 26th July
Would love to try it out at the beach....but not at the local pricing in OZ


Sadly here in Australia the rep for Eflite are going to sell it for almost twice the price @ A$399 (US$199=A$269)

One of the great things about EPP foam is that if it does break, it’s most often a clean break and the foam doesn’t compress and stay compressed like EPO does in a crash. A shot of CA and 10 seconds later it’s ready to fly again

These are the motors: 1206-3900Kv Brushless Motor: Ultrix 600mm

Does anyone know if they have proper bearings or just bushings like the little ones?

Neat. Would also like to know about the bushings, that was a bummer on the red one.

Light kit seems kinda sparse, nothing on the tail like the UMX?
