E-flite UMX Air Tractor BNF Basic with AS3X and SAFE Select
The E-flite UMX Air Tractor is an easy-to-fly ultra-micro version of the crop duster that’s a perfect first scale or low-wing model for intermediate and beyond pilots. It features a 2S and 3S compatible power system, functional lights, and flaps! Air Tractor ag and utility airplanes have earned a reputation for friendly handling, incredible capabilities, and unmatched versatility. Those qualities carry over to the E-flite UMX (Ultra Micro eXtreme) Air Tractor, and along with exclusive Spektrum AS3X and SAFE Select technologies, make it a perfect scale low-wing model for intermediate to experienced RC pilots. The specially-tuned motor and 3-blade prop provide fantastic scale and sport aerobatic flight performance with 2S 280–300mAh LiPo batteries, or you can install a 3S battery for more power and unlimited vertical without the need for any modifications or upgrades. Functional flaps improve slow-speed handling while also offering Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) capabilities. And because of its convenient ultra-micro size, it can be flown in more places and smaller spaces including many yards, parks, and sports fields, while the oversized tires allow it to fly from paved, dirt, gravel and even some grass surfaces. The factory-applied and fully painted finish provides excellent visibility along with striking scale looks that are accented by LED navigation, strobe and landing lights. Best of all, it arrives 100% factory assembled and ready to fly right out of the box, plus the box includes a handle so it’s perfect to use for safe and convenient storage/transport of the model. The E-flite UMX Air Tractor delivers a unique flying experience a wide range of pilots will enjoy, even if it’s your first scale or low-wing model!

Bind-N-Fly Completion Level Advantage
Already own a Spektrum transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!
The UMX Air Tractor is equipped with a control unit/flight controller that includes an ESC and Spektrum receiver that provides real-time flight battery voltage telemetry to compatible Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, NX6, 8 and 10, the iX12, iX14, iX20 and others) while you fly.
This ultra-micro Air Tractor is equipped with exclusive Spektrum AS3X and SAFE Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you’re flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch to make it easier to fly!
The factory-installed brushless outrunner motor is 2S and 3S compatible to offer a wide range of “mild to wild” performance – from slow cruising to maximize flight time, to hovering and unlimited vertical performance!
The oversized, tundra-style tires soak up bumps and provide excellent prop clearance so you can fly from surfaces that are impossible for most models of this size to handle: including many grass, gravel paths, dirt trails and paved surfaces.
The E-Flite UMX Air Tractor’s design makes it capable of slow and scale-like flying, sport flying, and even aggressive aerobatics — for “mild to wild” flight performance — all in the same flight! Plus, the functional flaps, lightweight airframe, and high-power brushless motor make it possible to spring into the air or float down to land in less distance than many other similar class models!
Like the larger E-flite Air Tractor 1.5m model, the UMX™ Air Tractor comes with realistic-looking LED landing, navigation and simulated strobe lights that are factory-installed and powered from the flight battery.
Construction with advanced EPS material delivers a lightweight yet durable airframe. And in the unfortunate event you damage any airframe parts or components and can’t repair them, a full line of replacement/spare parts is readily available.
The UMX Air Tractor arrives 100% factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box! It’s equipped with industry leading Spektrum 2.4GHz technology that binds to your 6+ channel DSMX/DSM2 equipped transmitter so you can be flying within minutes of opening the box.
Bind-N-Fly Completion Level Advantage
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly and fly!
This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization–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 much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.
If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required.
With SAFE Select enabled, you get:
Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.
The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It’s also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.
Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Programming Required
The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn’t require any complex programming and takes just a few seconds. For UMX models like this one, SAFE Select is automatically assigned to channel 5 (Gear) so you can turn it on and off with any switch assigned to that channel (switch A by default on most Spektrum computer transmitters).
