Having flown numerous ultra micro planes before, this is my first ultra micro Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) jet. And this little jet does not dissapoint! Because of the new Artificial Stabilization in 3-Axis (AS3X) technology built into it, I was able to fly it in winds at about 10 mph, with wind gusts up to 15 mph with no problems whatsoever. This jet flies well in windy conditions that my other ultra micros simply cannot handle. Set up and binding it to my Spektrum DX6i transmitter was quick and painless and I set it up for dual rates at 70% low and 100% high for all control surfaces per recommendations in the included manual.

For those brand new to the hobby or those who might be considering purchasing this jet as a gift for their son, grandson, etc. who may be new to this hobby, keep in mind that this is not an easy beginner ready to 'fly-out-of-the-box' type of plane. This plane does not come with a transmitter. It is a bind and fly only. Which means you supply your own transmitter such as a Spektrum DX series TX. It comes with one 200 mAh battery and although there is a battery charger included, it does not come with a wall charger adapter. So unless you have a 12 volt battery lying around to hook the battery charger to, you'll have to purchase a plug-in wall charger as well (E-flite part no. EFLC4000).

As I mentioned, this jet really screams and handles wind with finesse, is very stable and flies like its on rails! It did take some getting used to initially since it handles differently from my prop driven planes and is really fast, so it requires a lot of space to fly in. Some cons that I've noticed is that the rear horizontal stabilizer could be more rigid. And there are no aileron servo covers under the wings. This will be a problem if you do belly landings since dirt and debris will eventually get into the exposed servos. Despite that, I am having a lot of fun with the E-Flite UMX MiG-15!! Is it worth it? In my opinion, heck yeah!!

This is the *only* RTF model I've ever purchased that I've been fully satisfied with.

As soon as you unbox it, you can tell that care was taken in the design, construction and packaging of the model... it was literally ready to fly. All linkages come with a little kinked section that allows for trim adjustments using pliers, but the model was pretty well trimmed already and after a single aileron adjustment and charging the batteries, I took it to the park and immediately got several successful flights out of it. This has been the story ever since; unlike some other RTF models I've purchased, all the electronics are still going strong and nothing has started to come apart.

This is not a model for beginners. Besides the fact that it has a full 4-channel setup, it's very small, quite fast, and sometimes quite difficult to see. However, it seems quite durable; it took a nosedive into grass off one of my first handlaunches with no external damage, and it's so light that the occasional rough landing on grass isn't a problem. Additionally, the stabilization system built into the receiver makes handling it in windy conditions much easier. My first flights were in rather strong winds, but I had no problems controlling it.

In the air, it handles great despite the fact that its small size means it loses speed rather quickly in the absence of thrust. It doesn't have an excess of power to offset this, but neither is it underpowered in my opinion; it's capable of a quite decent rate of climb. I would recommend picking up a 300 mAh battery (or two or three), as the model can easily carry the extra weight and you'll get a proportional increase in flight time.

I saw one of my fellow club members and I knew I had to check out Amazon to see if they had it for sale. I made the purchase and two days later I'm charging the batteries and planning my first flight.

Well, the weather here in Florida has been stormy and very windy. I finally got a chance to fly in between jobs. Snuck to an open field and proceeded to fly. This thing is fast and very sensitive to controls as compared to my other flyers. I'm clearly not experienced enough to push it to its potential. Best thing is that I was able to fly and not crash. I did take off the landing gear in order to belly land. The AS3X is clearly helping me keep the jet stable. Great technology.

All in all I find this to be an excellent EDF. It's durable and a lot of fun. Get it, you won't regret it.

I am completely a beginner to this hobby. I have almost no experience with planes. I own the mini vapor and have done around 20 flights on that. But I decided to give this a try. And surprisingly I didn't crash! Even though this is an EDF, it is still very stable and very easy to fly. Rolls are super easy but landings are a little tough. I land in the nice tall grass but my goal is to land on the road. It actually can glide nice and slow even though it's a jet. But I still wouldn't recommend this to a beginner becuase it's very fast. I have a little simulator time for that helps a some. So if you want a fun, fast, and affordable plane, don't hesitate to buy. You won't regret it!
********update 8-21-13*************
My second flight did not go so well. I was flying it in about 5-10 mph winds, and not sure why, but it suddenly had the urge to nose down straight into the ground at 30 feet up. Not sure why as3x didn't seem to be doing its job at that time. But the entire front was smooshed in. So I ordered a replacement. I reinstalled everything as before but it just never flew correctly after that operation. So I have given up on it for a bit. I ordered that new habu 180 today. I will do a review on that when I do my maiden. But this is still a great little jet, but try to avoid too much wind. But as long as you keep it out of wind, than you should have a good time with it. Still highly recommended, but if you want a faster jet, you should look at the habu 180.
