I recently bought the UMX Spacewalker, a great little indoor flyer. Does anyone know what the "UMX" means? I see UMX in other places as well.

From what I get reading the E-Flite add's and flyers......it's the trademark name for a series of Ultra Micro craft.....X being the series ID......just another RC TM acronym........

They all come with the Spektrum AS3X and a few are advertised with the SAFE label......the Micro (labeled) aspect of these craft would be better served as Macro.......is there really a true definition for any of these acronyms......?

Seems every brand has it's own version of Micro, Mini, Macro.....Ultra, Ultimate, ......I'm confused.......

I just came home from the LHS and opened the box of my Spacewalker BNF.
It is a three channel and it doesn’t have AS3X but it should be fun nonetheless.
I think the UMX means Un-Mitigated eXcitement
