E-flite UMX Turbo Timber Evolution BNF Basic with AS3X and SAFE
The E-flite UMX Turbo Timber Evolution is a scaled-down ultra-micro version of the extremely popular Turbo Timber Evolution 1.5m! It’s also an updated and upgraded version of the best-selling UMX Turbo Timber that features a reinforced airframe and stronger linkages to handle the added power, performance, and capability the new 2S and 3S compatible power system delivers. It’s equipped with LED landing, navigation, and strobe lights, delivers real-time battery voltage and other telemetry to compatible transmitters, plus it can be equipped with the optional UMX floats (sold separately). And because of its ultra-micro size, the UMX Turbo Timber Evolution can be flown outdoors in many yards, parks, and sports fields – or even indoors in gymnasiums and other suitable spaces! It’s affordable, convenient, capable – and easy to fly – which makes it a great choice for a wide range of pilots interested in a flying experience they can’t get with any other 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™ Turbo Timber Evolution 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 Turbo Timber Evolution 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!
Versatile Gear Options
Fly off surfaces that are impossible for most models of this size to handle: grass, gravel paths, dirt trails, paved surfaces — even pools, ponds and lakes using the optional floats (EFLUA1190, sold separately). The landing gear has fairings that are secured to the fuselage and oversized, tundra-style tires soak up bumps and provide excellent prop clearance.
STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) Capable
The UMX Turbo Timber Evolution’s wing is designed with features like drooped wingtips, functional oversized flaps, and to accept optional-use leading edge slats (included) for improved slow flight and STOL performance. These features, along with the lightweight design and high-power brushless motor, make it possible to spring into the air or float down to land in less distance than any other similar class model!
Like the UMX Timber models that came before it, the Turbo Timber Evolution comes with realistic-looking LED landing, navigation and simulated strobe lights that are factory-installed and powered from the flight battery.
The reinforced airframe with stronger, more precise ball-link equipped linkages is lightweight yet durable. 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 Turbo Timber Evolution 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).
