    This is my unboxing and review of the new E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane with AS3X.

    In this video I show the plane in detail and compare it to the original Parkzone F4F Wildcat Parkflyer, E-flite UMX P-51 Mustang, and the E-flite UMX P-47.

    This is a quick Sunset Maiden Flight with my new E-flite UMX F4F Wildcat WWII Warbird RC Plane with AS3X.

    It was a bit windy and the sun was pretty low, but it flew quite well and I am very happy with my first time taking it out. It was all caught on camera by my GF too!

    Here is the UMX Wildcat Maiden Flight Video!

    Pros:
    - It flew very well in some fairly rough air
    - Ailerons rolls were tight and very easy
    - It has landing gear and can be belly landed
    - Other than the defects on the main wing, it is a nicely finished plane
    - It has a powerful 3,000kv 2S brushless motor
    - The battery bay is large and provides easy access to this area

    Cons:
    - The landing gear is really narrow like the scale Cat and makes keeping it on its wheels during landings very difficult
    - Mine had a lot of marks and a big ding all over the main wing making an otherwise beautiful plane look ugly.
    - The elevator design is flawed causing tuning to make it ready for its maiden flight
