UMX Gee Bee R-2 from E-flite

Details

Gee Bee® aircraft were among the pioneering pylon racing designs that captivated just about everyone during aviation’s 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, you’ll 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 you’re a relatively new RC pilot. Plus, it’s equipped with a 3600Kv brushless motor that delivers more speed and thrust resulting in a model of the classic Gee Bee that’s a dream to fly while offering an exciting and incredibly unique flight experience.

Fully-Assembled
The UMX Gee Bee R-2 model arrives 100% factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box. It's equipped with Spektrum® 2.4GHz technology that binds to your 5+ channel DSMX®/DSM2® equipped transmitter so you can be flying within minutes of opening the box.

High-Power Brushless Motor
Under the convenient, magnetically secured battery hatch is a powerful 3600Kv brushless motor that delivers more power for added thrust and speed when using the recommended 2S 7.4V 200–280mAh LiPo batteries.

Abundant Scale Detail
You get all the detail of a full-featured replica that includes the look of stretched covering, flying wires, wheel pants and a pilot, yet the entire model is remarkably lightweight so the best flying experience possible shines through.
