My name is John, and I enjoy flying and building ultra micro RC planes and multirotors (commonly and incorrectly referred to as ‘drones’). Because of this, I started umFlight to share news, reviews, builds, how to’s, and more about the hobby. I also write about FPV (First Person View), which is truly a great way to experience flight.
Designing and building websites is another hobby of mine. I’m constantly adding something here or changing the wording there on umFlight, whether they are large enough to be noticed or not!
I started this blog to share news, reviews, builds, how to’s, my opinions about the hobby, and some personal RC stories.
Posting Schedules on umFlight:
While I make sure that a new post is published on Sundays, I sometimes post on random weekdays. So, check back often or follow umFlight! Starting May 2015, I will begin to try to post one build or review every month or two. Note that this isn’t guaranteed (for example, there might not be a UM aircraft I want to buy, and I might not be able to come up with a design and build it.), but this goal will help add a lot more good content even if I can’t do it every month.Thanks for visiting!

How big are the UM aircraft on umFlight?
Planes: The umFlight wingspan of a UM RC plane is under roughly 25 inches (wingspan).
Quadcopters: While the “normal” size of a UM quadcopter is under roughly 200-180 mm, the definition has been stretched on umFlight. I cover quadcopters up to 250 mm as exclusively UM aircraft are featured on umFlight.
