This is the E-flite Ultra-Micro UMX Yak 54 180 3D Bind-N-Fly Electric Airplane. No other aerobatic design meets the challenge and demands of precision and 3D versatility like the Yak 54 can. Recognized early on by the father of 3D, Quique Somenzini, his Yak 54 concept ushered in a new era of RC aerobatic agility thatís now possible to experience in small flying spaces indoors and out. The UMX Yak 54 180 offers incredible speed and thrust from its specially tuned brushless power system. But what truly makes this go-anywhere 3D thoroughbred truly special is its incredible AS3X System that delivers incredible precision so that you can perform aerobatics smoothly and the control authority to pop sharply into 3D maneuvers with the stability of a giant-scale aerobat. And despite its size, AS3X stability also helps you fly in moderate winds without seeing so much as a bobble, plus youíll be able to hold high-alpha flight angles that have a locked-in feel.

AS3X Stabilization
The exclusive Artificial Stability Ė 3 aXis (AS3X) system helps take performance expectations in ultra micro aircraft a quantum leap higher. Based on the successful use of MEMS sensor technology within the AS3X Stabilization System essential to Blade ultra micro flybarless helicopters, the specifically tuned AS3X System for airplanes helps invisibly correct for turbulence, torque and tip stalls when encountered. Furthermore, the outstanding control agility delivers an ultra smooth, locked-in feel that obeys your every command with performance thatís natural feeling. Itís so gratifying, in fact, that itís as though youíre the RC pilot of an expertly tuned, giant-scale model.

This is the sickest UMX eflite product yet, all I can say is wow. What a ton of fun this is a huge upgrade from flying the beast and the carbon cub, it's a lot faster capable of huge vertical climbs and if the expo is set low to 25% for. Example it is a great plane to learn on.p)

Bought this as my second plane.. First was the super cub. It a lot of fun to fly and takes a crash really well. In retrospect it's probably a bit much for a newbie. I've got 10 flights on it crashed a lot and it's still going strong. Plane is fast and very responsive. I like it a lot!)
