    This is my unboxing and review for the brand new E-flite UMX Waco RC Plane with AS3X and a 2S brushless motor from Horizon Hobby.

    In this video I go over the plane and compare it to my two other ultra micro biplanes or "bipes", the E-flite UMX PT-17 and E-Flite UMX Pitts S-1S.

    Here is a list of pros and cons for this UMX RC Biplane:

    Cons
    - Its stickers were not applied very well
    - The elevator has some asymmetry issues

    Pros
    - Looks great
    - Nice size
    - 2S brushless power
    - Well built landing gear

    I liked it a lot, but it wasn't that fun to fly when the wind kicked up. It does not like wind.

    This one in particular turns into a kite. Some like the Pitts and the Beast are actually very good in the wind, the Beast in particular.
