E-flite Ultra-Micro UMX Carbon Cub SS Bind-N-Fly Electric Airplane
I absolutely love this plane! I am very, very new to RC aviation having received a Champ from a RC car/truck racing buddy. After I got comfortable with the Champ I started looking for what's next. That's when I saw the early video's and pre-orders for the Carbon Cub. I got at the beginning of the line and have had my Cub for a couple of weeks now. I characterized it as a slightly super size Champ, with 2S brushless motor, ASX3 gyro, ailerons & flaps. I binded it with my DX7S radio and was in the air in no time! As a new flyer, I have yet to mess with the flaps and have the dual-rate on the ailerons down to 35% which allows me to fly it well. At times, I still need to be careful of the speed as it's considerably faster than my Champ so it covers a lot more ground. It looks super scale when flying and can handle a fair amount of wind. I also have to say that it's fairly resilient as I've crashed a few times and haven't had to replace anything yet. I can see this plane being fun to fly for a long, long time, as the power, and variety of control surfaces yield lot's of performance capabilities.

Really fun to fly, feels like a real bush plane. fast enough BUT the wing is very weak right at the cock pit connection, I've replaced the wing twice. Ive now retired the plane and salvaged parts off it, the wing is too expensive to keep replacing. Even a slow crash landing will break the wing.
