Default E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat

This is my unboxing and review of the new E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane with AS3X.

In this video I show the plane in detail and compare it to the original Parkzone F4F Wildcat Parkflyer, E-flite UMX P-51 Mustang, and the E-flite UMX P-47.

This is a quick Sunset Maiden Flight with my new E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane with AS3X.

It was a bit windy and the sun was pretty low, but it flew quite well and I am very happy with my first time taking it out. It was all caught on camera by my GF too!

Here is the UMX Wildcat Maiden Flight Video!

Pros:
- It flew very well in some fairly rough air
- Ailerons rolls were tight and very easy
- It has landing gear and can be belly landed
- Other than the defects on the main wing, it is a nicely finished plane
- It has a powerful 3,000kv 2S brushless motor
- The battery bay is large and provides easy access to this area

Cons:
- The landing gear is really narrow like the scale Cat and makes keeping it on its wheels during landings very difficult
- Mine had a lot of marks and a big ding all over the main wing making an otherwise beautiful plane look ugly.
- The elevator design is flawed causing tuning to make it ready for its maiden flight
