E-flite UMX™ Waco BL BNF Basic with AS3X 550mm (21") Wingspan - Bind-N-Fly Basic - EFLU5350

This is another fantastic micro offering from E-flite.  The iconic and classic Waco Biplane.  The Motion RC Flight Boys thoughts are that if this biplane flies as good as the E-flite UMX Pitts Biplane (one of their favorite micros), then buckle up and enjoy!  Rich in scale detail which includes molded surface details, support wires made of carbon fiber, windscreens, attractive blue and white color scheme and pilot which of course wouldn't be complete without the wind scarf.  Includes AS3X, the now standard flight stability feature that makes these micros look and fly more like larger models.  With the 180-size brushless motor and extremely low wing load, you can really put this attractive biplane through its paces!  

Features:

  • Generous Scale Details and Appeal
  • 180-sized Brushless Motor and Low Wing Load Provides Virtually Unlimited Flying Capability
  • AS3X® Stabilization Technology Allows Solid and Secure Handling
  • Comes With Spektrum™ DSMX® Receiver
  • Reliable Spektrum Performance Linear Servos
  • Comes Out Of The Box Ready To Fly (Just Charge Your Battery*, Bind and Fly!)
  • Attractive Blue and White Waco Paint Scheme
  • Steerable Tail Wheel, Pilot Complete with Wind Scarf, Scale Gear and Wheel Pants

Beautiful detail for the given size.

This is a good looking little plane. Quite twitchy for me though. Don't let it get so far away that you loose orientation.

Beautiful and fun

I think all the reviews from everyone else are spot on. It’s a fantastic plane that looks great and is a stable flyer. I’ve noticed that some say it’s does well in the wind and others say it doesn’t. I feel that AS3X does a great job of keeping the plane stable in a mild breeze, but its such a light and “floaty” plane that it struggles sometimes to cut through a strong headwind. I prefer to fly this one on less windy days. It’s capable of a lot of aerobatic stuff, but that’s what I use my UMX Pitts for. The Waco makes me want to just chill and fly scale (with the occasional loops, rolls, and cubans of course!). Oh, and I must be lucky because my pilot has his scarf on the right way!

UMX WACO a nice flyer, fun size

Needed very little trim adjustments on set up, mostly for aileron roll. I use an inexpensive Spektrum DXe for these small planes. A nice mellow slow flyer for sure, but can get up and go too. I'm a new flyer, but loops and rolls on the 1st flight came naturally. I prefer full rates for this one. Looks great in the air, and is best suited for calmer days for sure, due to it's light weight. Probably a good fit for a second plane.

This plane is incredible. I've

This plane is incredible. I've got quite a few other umx planes in my fleet as well as larger scale planes, wings and drones and I keep going back to this when I need to get a flying fix in.
