Fly it like you STOL it, micro bush planes FTW!
I had this E-flite UMX Turbo Timber arrive last week and I was really excited to give it a go. It’s been a while since I had played with a UMX airframe and I’m always so impressed with how well they fly. In the case of this Turbo Timber, it has some additional features I’d not actually seen in a UMX thus far, most notably the airframe features full navigation lights. Also, being noted as a STOL airplane (similar to the UMX Timber), it features some nice big “Chuck Norris tires” for those unimproved field operations which do the job of impaling the landing area into submission quite well.
The design itself is an evolution of the UMX Timber, but features an updated turbo-prop look as well as a higher power 3400kv motor paired with a 3-blade propeller. The result is a bit better vertical performance if that’s something you’re looking for. For me, it’s a fun STOL aircraft to take on the road for those backyard flying adventures! Plus, with the included flaps and slats, the airplane slows down to a crawl which is quite fun.
