E-flite UMX PT-17 with AS3X 388mm (15.3") Wingspan - BNF
E-flite UMX PT-17 Bi-Plane with AS3X Flight Stabilization - Bind-N-Fly (BNF) - EFLU3080
An American Aviation Treasure
Here at Motion RC we are firm believers in good things coming in small packages. This latest offering from E-flite is a classic example. Built by the thousands to train pilots for the U.S. Army during WWII, hundreds of the PT-17 biplanes still fly. Many served as crop dusters and were given radial engines that doubled their horsepower. Not just tough, its well-mannered flight characteristics helped make it a general aviation treasure that’s a popular sight at air shows around the world.
The E-flite UMX™ PT-17 is modeled after the beautiful PT-17 owned by Pat Hartness, founder of the Joe Nall event held at Triple Tree Aerodrome, in South Carolina. Fully assembled right out of the box, you can be ready to fly in the time it takes to charge the battery. From the distinct outline to the cylinder fins on the dummy radial engine, scale detail can be seen throughout. The result is an impressive looking model that offers full four-channel control for great handling on the ground and the maneuverability to perform scale aerobatics.
The advanced AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel ultra micro receiver is what helps give the UMX PT-17 an incredibly solid look and feel in the air. It’s technology that works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis sensing with exclusively tuned flight control software. As a result, your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced while control feel is always rock-solid so you can make maneuvers like low and slow passes laser-straight. It’s an impressive flight experience that will have you feeling like you’re at the controls of an expertly-tuned airplane that’s much larger.
All you need to start flying the UMX PT-17 as soon as possible is a 4+ channel transmitter with Spektrum DSM2/DSMX 2.4GHz technology.

Love it! It flies very well and performs many maneuvers with ease. Great indoor flier.
great little plane eazy to fly i am 89 and love it
I really like this plane. It is not only beautiful in the air but also does many maneuvers and is very agile.
enjoyed my first one and wanted a spare for the summer.
I bought the model to use with my students to illustrate what a biplane was back in the day. It served it's purpose well. It is a bit fragile for kids to handle though that would make it easier to fly if that was my purpose.
Fun plane to fly. Watch outside with wind over 10 mph. In playground it is small and easy to loose in sky. Rudder really helps turns. Loops, rolls easy. I flew in 50 degree temps and 150 mah battery good for 4 minutes max. You can get it "up there "into the wind and glide it some to save battery. Why ***** about a pilot not being included. You could barely see him anyway. I fly the Eflite T-28 and B-25. This is actually more fun to fly
Fantastic UMX Plane
After watching another club member fly his inside a gym I had to have one too. Flies excellent, slow or fast and no bad tendencies. Using 1s-220mah packs, 8 minutes of cruising around indoors.
Great little plane
This is not my first micro plan but it is the best flying of the lot. First flight and no trim, flew like a big plane with no bad habits.
