Gee Bee aircraft were among the pioneering pylon racing designs that captivated just about everyone during aviationís Golden Age. Their cutting-edge, teardrop-shaped designs coupled with small wings and control surfaces required a skillful hand to fly well, but with the right pilot they dominated the race course. Back by popular demand, the E-flite UMX Gee Bee R-2 returns with more power plus exclusive AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies that make it faster, easier and more enjoyable for a wider range of pilots to fly than ever before.

The E-flite UMX Gee Bee R-2 ultra-micro model is ready to groove through the skies just about anywhere because it features specially-tuned handling more in common with a friendly sport model than a short-coupled golden-age racer. Awe-inspiring with an authentic scale outline and abundant details such as flying wires and a pilot, this replica offers handling so remarkably smooth, youíll want to fly it every day. AS3X technology works behind the scenes to help you enjoy the outstanding control you always wanted but never thought possible in a small airplane, let alone in a model of the Gee Bee. Optional-use SAFE Select flight envelope protection technology features the assistance of automatic self-leveling and pitch and bank angle limits that make it possible to successfully fly such a unique design even if youíre a relatively new RC pilot. Plus, itís equipped with a 3600Kv brushless motor that delivers more speed and thrust resulting in a model of the classic Gee Bee thatís a dream to fly while offering an exciting and incredibly unique flight experience.

AS3X Receiver with Optional SAFE Select Technology

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a 6-channel 2.4GHz DSMX receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization Ė 3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence so you enjoy a sense of stability and precision that makes it feel like you're flying a larger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If youíre a relatively new pilot or want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable optional SAFEģ Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver.

With SAFE Select features enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits

These keep the aircraft from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles during takeoff and landing.
Automatic Self-Leveling

The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. Itís also helpful if you ever want to hand launch the airplane.
No Programming Required

SAFE Select technology is factory set and automatically assigned to a switch so the assistance it provides can be easily turned on and off.
