This is an E-Flite UMX Turbo Timber BNF Basic Electric Airplane with AS3X and SAFE Select, a redesign of the original Timber that includes updated features, increased power and extreme acrobatic performance capabilities.

This is a scaled down evolution of the original Timber, an iconic ultra micro model best-equipped for exciting STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) adventures. The UMX Turbo Timber updates the original design with a modern turboprop-styled nose and 3-blade propeller, plus a higher-power 3400Kv brushless motor. When using the same 2S 280mAh batteries, this Turbo version provides even better STOL performance with shorter takeoffs and faster climbs. This set-up delivers some extreme aerobatic capabilities, as well as the power to hover, then climb out vertically. In the hands of experienced pilots, the UMX Turbo Timber can be flown in more places — even off of water with the optional floats (sold separately) — and in smaller spaces. Plus its high-wing configuration and exclusive optional-use SAFE Select technology provide plenty of stability to make the UMX Turbo Timber a great choice if you've mastered flying at least one model before.

Very good plane, pretty quick for how small it is, and plenty durable so far. Lights are a very nice touch for flying in dusk and dawn. Large wheels work perfect over gravel and bark and flaps are super helpful for low and slow flying. Overall a super good value for the money!

I widthold final judgement until I complete repairs. I have yet to get a single satisfactory flight out of this plane. The servo on the right wing was unresponsive & super jittery, I replaced it to no avail, I ordered a new board that was listed on the page the plane was for sale on under "replacement parts"
but in reality the board listed there was meant for a different aircraft. Then the motor stopped responding. I've since ordered the correct board and just in case it's the motor itself that's defective I've ordered a new replacement brushless motor. These I got from horizon hobby (not that it matters which site one orders from,it's a big conglomerate who shares inventory) since the board is backordered I have no idea when they will arrive. Also, one reason I chose this aircraft was the SAFE capability but according to the clerk at Hobby town USA in Redmond,WA it cannot be activated with my transmitter, this being the transmitter who came with the sport cub s v2 which was its own bundle of dissapointed. I suspect my experience is not typical and most have better luck. I was into RC planes into my late teens, now in my mid 40s I wanted to get back into the hobby but thus far, having a devil of a time. I'm going to at this time leave a tepid 3 stars, if I get the bloody thing in the air I'll amend higher, right now, hundreds of dollars and many hours in I'm pretty dissatisfied
