  • UMX F-86 ''THE HUFF'' Sabre
  • ETA: Early May


The F-86 Sabre is one of the most iconic and recognizable fighter aircraft ever built. As one of the first-ever jet-powered fighter aircraft with swept wings, it achieved an unmatched victory ratio of 10 to 1 against the MiG-15 during the Korean War. Lieutenant Jim Thompson was credited with shooting down two MiGs during that time, one of which had a dragon painted on the side. Soon after, he had a similar dragon painted on the side of his iconic F-86, known as "The Huff." The E-flite UMX F-86 Sabre 30mm EDF is an ultra-micro-sized model of the famous aircraft that arrives factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box, including a premium fully painted with waterslide decal finish. It's equipped with an updated and optimized 4S-compatible power system to meet modern-day EDF performance expectations-making it the highest-performance ultra-micro class jet model yet! It's also equipped with expertly tuned AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies, plus it provides real-time battery voltage and other telemetry information to compatible transmitters. And because of its ultra-micro size, pilots can fly the UMX F-86 in more places and smaller spaces than most other EDF models, including at many large parks and sports fields! The fixed landing gear with a steerable nosewheel makes it easy to taxi, take off from, and land on smooth surfaces. Or, you can remove the landing gear for more speed and vertical performance with easy hand launches - thanks to the automatic Hand Launch Assist mode. It all adds up to deliver an authentic, affordable, and convenient F-86 flying experience you can't get with any other model!

  • Easier to fly with innovative and optional-use SAFE Select flight envelope protection
  • The unmatched stability and locked-in feel of exclusive AS3X technology

Scale Features

The fully moulded airframe features more surface details than most UMX/ultra-micro class models, including panel lines, gun ports, and other scale finishes you'd typically expect to find on larger models.

Fully Assembled

The UMX F-86 Sabre 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 5+ channel DSMX/DSM2 equipped transmitter, so you could be flying within minutes of opening the box.

Factory Finished

The factory-applied and fully painted with a waterslide decal finish, not only looks great but also replicates the iconic "The Huff" trim scheme.

Skill Level 2 - Some Experience Required

Skill Level 2 aircraft, like this one, are suitable for RC pilots who already have some experience and the skills to assemble, set up and/or fly similar class models. And although this is one of the easiest to fly F-86 models yet, it's not a suitable first-ever RC aircraft for new pilots or first-ever EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) jet model for intermediate to experienced RC pilots. You should have the experience and skills necessary to successfully fly simpler EDF models like the E-flite Habu SS (Super Sport) 50mm or 70mm before attempting to fly the UMX F-86 Sabre 30mm EDF.

Higher Performance

The factory-installed 30mm EDF power system features a 4S-compatible outrunner motor. This power system setup delivers the highest performance of any single-motor powered UMX/ultra-micro class jet to date!

Lightweight Design

Construction with composite-reinforced EPS material delivers a lightweight yet durable airframe that's also easily repairable with odorless/foam-safe CA, Foam 2 Foam, epoxy, and other foam-friendly adhesives. Or, 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.

Gear Options

You can use the included fixed landing gear - with a steerable nose wheel and simulated gear doors/strut covers - to taxi, take off from, and land on smooth surfaces. Or you can leave the landing gear off for more speed and vertical performance, plus easy hand launches over and landings on grass while utilizing the automatic Hand Launch Assist Mode.

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!

Exclusive Technologies

This F-86 Sabre features 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 this the easiest to fly F-86 yet!
