Default E-flite UMX Turbo Timber BNF Basic UMX Bush Plane

This is a detailed Unboxing Of The E-flite UMX Turbo Timber BNF Basic UMX RC Plane. I will update this over time as I am able to fly it.

Here are my Review Notes for this E-flite UM Turbo Timber:

Pros:
- Wheel plastic piece update over the first E-flite UMX Timber
- It has a 3-bladed prop like the E-flite UMX Cirrus
- A higher 3400kv brushless motor comes with it for more power
- The plane can fly with 550s as seen in some of my videos.
- Its lights all over the plane are awesome!
- The new chipset they use in this Timber UM allows for telemetry, just not the new advanced Smart Telemetry!

Cons:
- Longer nose compared to the original UMX Timber.
- Shorter flight times compared to the Ultra Micro Timber.

Thanks

Thank you! The only reason I would recommend the Turbo is if the landing gear on the older one just don't hold up to your style of flying.

The older one gets much better flight times, but I really dislike the landing gear on that one.

Thanks - Its had a bit of rough and tumble with a tree or two - no major problems with the gear so far. Now the regular timber on the otherhand.....
