Default E-flite UMX Timber STOL RC Plane

I am happy to share my review of the new E-flite UMX Timber STOL RC Plane with you guys.

This video was taken of the Maiden Flight Review on a very windy evening.

Review Notes:

Pros:
- It handles wind very well
- There is plenty of power for all kinds of flying
- It is easy to fly, beginner friendly in SAFE mode provided they fly in a wide open space because it takes a while to maneuver in that mode.
- The Tundra Tires look cool and allow it to take-off from and land on a variety of surfaces.
- It accommodates floats
- The lights are really cool for something at this price point

Cons:
- It does not taxi well
- The stickers were not properly applied
- The manual did not have complete instructions for SAFE or flaps.
- The flaps were off out of the box
