A while back, gosh, its been 10 months already, my how time flies.    I picked up the Horizon Hobby 2.1 m Carbon-Z Cessna 150 Horizon 2.1 meter Cessna 150 Carbon-Z.  I grew up in a 1966 Cessna 150 N3983J, and despite it being red vs blue, it holds a place in my heart.   It flies AMAZING. So slow you would think it should fall out of the air.

Turns out they had a special if you bought the Cessna, you could get a free set of floats.   After much fighting with Horizon, I got my floats today!

I love the 2 cell power, and how I can drop the flaps and fly this thing in the yard almost as slow as I can run.  The reason the Motion RC Fly Boys really dig this new offering from E-flite is its ability to be flown nearly anywhere due to it’s STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) versatility.  The UMX Timber comes with leading edge flaps to decrease your takeoff and landing distance even further.  Stability is at the heart of this model and comes with the AS3X Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Flight Mode so both beginner and intermediate pilots can fly with confidence.  Added realism like the LED light package adds another dimension with sunrise or sunset sorties.  With the optional float package (not included) extend your flight path even further to those watery runways.  A versatile and fun adventure awaits!

FEATURES:

  • Fly in impossibly small spaces with its STOL capabilities
  • Leading edge slats (optional) and fully functional flaps for short takeoffs and landings
  • Robust 180-size, 3000kV brushless outrunner motor provides plenty of punch
  • AS3X technology and optional SAFE Select mode for increased stability
  • Spektrum™ DSMX® 2.4GHz technology
  • Tundra-sized wheels and durable landing gear can handle rugged surfaces
  • LED light system installed for those sunrise or sunset sorties
  • Optional floats available for those water adventures (see below)
  • Battery compartment that is easy to access
  • Steerable tail wheel
  • No assembly required

INCLUDES:

  • E-flite UMX Timber BNF Basic 700mm (27.6″) Wingspan – BNF

REQUIRES:

OPTIONAL:

  • E-flite UMX Timber Float Set w/Accessories – EFLUA1190

Its been MANY weeks since I have been out to the local field to fly.   Got there just after 7 on a cold, 55degree morning, blue skies.  Took this pic before my first flight of the day.

I was pretty eager to go fly a new plane I built.  The weather seemed pretty good at the house, so I grabbed the boys, and the toys, and headed out to the field.   As soon as I left the car, I knew it was to windy to fly, but I’m not one to give up, even when I should.

Of note, the magic of soft sand, and strong materials, I was able to fly this plane (much better the 2nd time) after working the sand out of the motor. 🙂
