The UMX™ Radian® ultra-micro motor glider became a class favorite by delivering a unique flying experience you simply can't get from any other model. Due to its traditional motor glider design, the Radian is inherently stable and easy to fly almost anywhere — indoors in gymnasiums and other suitable spaces, and outdoors in most yards, parks and sports fields. The exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® technology of its installed electronics smooths 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. E-flite® engineers upgraded this new version to include optional-use SAFE® Select technology, making the Radian even easier for more people to fly in more places. Plus, you can receive real-time battery voltage telemetry with compatible transmitters! It's the perfect next step after learning to fly, a great first glider and an exciting everyday sport model for a wide variety of pilots.

UPDATED FOR ULTRA-SMOOTH SOARING
The ever-popular UMX™ Radian® has been updated and upgraded so it's even easier and more fun to fly than before! The ultra-micro motor glider now includes exclusive Spektrum™ optional-use SAFE® Select technology and provides real-time battery voltage telemetry to compatible transmitters. This Bind-N-Fly® Basic model arrives factory-assembled and nearly flight-ready right out of the box. Simply install the one-piece wing with a few screws, install a charged battery, bind it to your compatible Spektrum transmitter and fly. Advanced EPS construction provides a lightweight yet durable airframe. The distinctive, gracefully curved polyhedral wing and efficient airfoil deliver outstanding soaring performance and long flight times with or without motor power. The factory-installed power system features a coreless motor, gearbox and an efficient folding propeller. It produces excellent climb performance and extends flight times up to 10-20+ minutes with a mix of power on/off flying using 1S 150-200mAh batteries. Because of its ultra-micro size, the UMX Radian can be flown indoors in gymnasiums and other suitable spaces, or outdoors pretty much anywhere — in most yards, parks, sports fields and beyond! If you learned to fly with a HobbyZone® Sport Cub S, you can use the same transmitter, battery and charger and make the Radian an economical next step. It's an ideal first glider or everyday sport model for low-time to experienced pilots interested in an easy to fly, ultra-micro class motor glider that delivers a unique flying experience!
This Bind-N-Fly (BNF®) Basic model comes 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 Spektrum DSMX®/DSM2® equipped transmitter (sold separately), install a charged battery (sold separately) and fly!
This UMX™ Radian® is equipped with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) and SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) 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, making it easy to fly for low-time and experienced pilots alike.
The UMX™ Radian® is equipped with a control unit/flight controller that includes two servos plus 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, iX20 and others) while you fly.
Long Flight Times
The factory-installed power system features a coreless motor, gearbox and an efficient folding propeller that delivers excellent climb performance and long flight times up to 10-20+ minutes with a mix of power on/off flying when using 1S 150–200mAh batteries.
The UMX™ Radian® arrives factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box. Simply install the one-piece wing with a few screws, install a charged battery, bind it to your compatible Spektrum™ transmitter and you're ready to fly!
Construction with advanced EPS material delivers a lightweight yet durable airframe. 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.
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.
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 an off with any switch assigned to that channel (switch A by default on most Spektrum computer transmitters).
