Default UMX Whipit DLG RC Glider

Hey guys!

I just got the new UMX Whipit and did a review on it. I have included below the complete unboxing, review, and maiden flight video for it. I show you what is in the box, discuss/review what I find in the box, and do a flight demonstration for you with the plane. I also have a special guest fly it too!

Not only is it one of the most unique RC Planes I have flown, it is also one of the more fun planes I have had an opportunity to fly.

Here are my Review Notes:

Cons:
- Bubbles under stickers
- Rudder was out of trim
- Wing screws are tiny and fragile

Pros:
- So much fun!!!
- Not very expensive
- It has a pretty nice glide slope!

Complete unboxing, review, and maiden flight:

This is the second batch of flights with a special guest that showed up after John and I started getting the hang of it. We went out and did some more today and I even tried some launches that matched its name with pretty good success!

Of course those aren't shown in this video but will be showing up soon!

Thanks for posting the review. One of my friends, a very experienced glider pilot, just got one of these and he loves it.

Not sure why you posted this here. Seems more appropriate to be in the glider forum.

You are welcome for posting the review and you are right about it being more appropriate in the glider forum. I thought that since it is a micro plane that it made sense. I will only post my new video of me with this plane in that forum.

I think for friend is not alone too. This thing is very addicting and is likely a gateway plane for me into larger DLG's
