AS3X Stabilization
DELIVERS BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE
The AS3X system for airplanes is an electronic
enhancement system that makes it possible
for you to experience super-smooth flight
performance, yet still have full control authority
for sport or scale flight.
Turbulence, torque and tip stalls are just some of
the many complications to assess when trying to
achieve smooth flight. The Horizon Hobby worldclass team of RC pilots developed the AS3X system
for airplanes based on the successful use of AS3X
with ultra micro flybarless helicopters. Specially
tuned for airplanes, the AS3X system invisibly
helps with complicated corrections, allowing you
to experience ultra-smooth flight performance that
feels so natural that you’ll quickly build confidence
in the capability of the airplane.
AS3X system setup is simple. Just bind your
DSM2™/DSMX® transmitter to the model using a
basic airplane program and AS3X will assure that
the locked-in feel and control authority you want is
instantly at your command to help show off your RC
pilot skills.
AS3X will innovate the way you’ll want to fly now
and in the future. To see what we mean, go to
www.E-fliteRC.com/AS3X.
Battery Warnings
The included battery charger (EFLUC1007) has been
designed to safely charge the Li-Po battery.
CAUTION: All instructions and warnings must
be followed exactly. Mishandling of Li-Po batteries
can result in a fire, personal injury, and/or property
damage.
• By handling, charging or using the included Li-Po
battery you assume all risks associated with
lithium batteries.
• If at any time the battery begins to balloon or
swell, discontinue use immediately. If charging
or discharging, discontinue and disconnect.
Continuing to use, charge or discharge a battery
that is ballooning or swelling can result in fire.
• Always store the battery at room temperature in a
dry area for best results.

Lithium Polymer
Battery
The Battery Charging Process
1. Charge only batteries that are cool to the touch and are not damaged. Look at the battery to make sure it is not
damaged e.g., swollen, bent, broken or punctured.
2. The connector of the battery is specifically designed to allow it to fit into the charge port one way to prevent
reverse polarity connection. However, check for proper alignment and polarity before proceeding to the next step.
3. Gently press the battery connector into the charge port located on the front of the charger.
4. When you make the connection successfully, the green LED blinking on the charger slows, indicating
proper connection.
5. Press the button on the charger. The red LED will illuminate, indicating charging has begun.
6. Charging a fully discharged (not over-discharged) 200mAh battery takes approximately 50–60 min-
utes at the charger’s 300mA charge rate. The included battery can be charged at a rate of up to 3C
(600mA).
7. When the battery is fully charged, the green LED will turn solid.
8. Always unplug the battery from the charger immediately upon completion of charging.
CAUTION: Overcharging a battery can cause a fire.
CAUTION: Only use a charger specifically designed to charge a Li-Po battery. Failure to do so could
result in fire causing injury or property damage.

Transmitter and Receiver Binding
Binding is the process of programming the receiver of the control unit to recognize the GUID (Globally
Unique Identifier) code of a single specific transmitter. You need to ‘bind’ your chosen SpektrumTM DSM2™/
DSMX® technology equipped aircraft transmitter to the receiver for proper operation.
Any JR® or Spektrum DSM2/DSMX transmitter can bind to the AS3X™ DSM® receiver. For best flight
performance of the UMX™ Gee Bee R2™, it is recommended that you use a transmitter with exponential and
dual rates. Please visit www.bindnfly.com for a complete list of compatible transmitters.
NOTICE: When using a Futaba® transmitter with a Spektrum DSM module, reversing the throttle channel
is required.
 Binding Procedure
1. Refer to your transmitter’s unique instructions for binding to a receiver.
2. Make sure the flight battery is disconnected from the aircraft.
3. Power off the transmitter.
4. Connect the flight battery in the aircraft. The receiver LED will begin to flash rapidly, (typically after 5 seconds).
5. Make sure the transmitter controls are at neutral and the throttle and throttle trim are in the low position.
6. Put your transmitter into bind mode. Refer to your transmitter’s manual for binding button or
switch instructions.
7. After 5 to 10 seconds, the receiver status LED will become solid, indicating that the receiver is bound to the
transmitter. If the LED does not turn solid, refer to the Troubleshooting Guide at the back of the manual.
For subsequent flights, power on the transmitter for 5 seconds before connecting the flight battery.
Installing the Flight Battery
1. Remove the battery hatch.
2. Attach the flight battery to the hook and loop
strip (A) on the battery tray. See the Adjusting
the Center of Gravity instructions for the
battery’s position.
3. Place the aircraft on the ground out of the wind
and connect a fully charged flight battery.
Ensure the aircraft is immobile for 5
seconds so the AS3X system initializes
correctly. See the Arming the ESC instructions
for correct connection of the battery to the ESC.
4. Install the battery hatch.
NOTICE: If using a different battery than the
recommended 2-Cell 7.4V 200mAh 25C Li-Po, you
will need to apply a circle of hook and loop fastener
to the battery in order to hold the battery in place.
CAUTION: Always disconnect the Li-Po
battery from the aircraft receiver when not flying to
avoid over-discharging the battery. Batteries
discharged to a voltage lower than the lowest
approved voltage may become damaged, resulting
in loss of performance and potential fire when
batteries are charged.

A
EN
Arming the ESC
Arming the ESC also occurs after binding as previously described, but subsequent connection of a flight
battery requires the steps below.
Lower throttle and throttle
trim to lowest settings.
Power on the Transmitter
then wait 5 seconds
Install flight battery and
connect it to the ESC.
Keep plane immobile
and away from wind for
5 seconds.
Series of tones
Continuous LED
If you accidentally connect the battery while the throttle is fully raised, the ESC will enter programming
mode. Disconnect the battery immediately.
The AS3X system will not activate until the throttle stick or trim is increased for the first time. Once the AS3X
is active, the control surfaces may move rapidly on the aircraft. This is normal.
AS3X will remain active until the battery is disconnected.
CAUTION: Always keep hands away from the propeller. When armed, the motor will turn the propeller
in response to any throttle movement.
Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC)
When a Li-Po battery is discharged below 3V per
cell, it will not hold a charge. The aircraft’s ESC
protects the flight battery from over-discharge using
Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC). Before the battery charge
decreases too much, LVC removes power supplied
to the motor. Power to the motor quickly decreases
and increases, showing that some battery power is
reserved for flight control and safe landing.
When the motor power pulses, land the aircraft
immediately and recharge the flight battery.
Disconnect and remove the Li-Po battery from the
aircraft after use to prevent trickle discharge. Before
storage, charge the Li-Po battery to full capacity.
During storage, make sure battery charge does not
fall below 3V per cell.
Tip: Due to the quiet nature of the aircraft, you may
not hear the pulsing of the motor.
For your first flights, set your transmitter timer or a
stopwatch to 3 minutes. Adjust your timer for longer
or shorter flights once you have flown the model.
Flights of 4.5 minutes or more are achievable if
using proper throttle management.
NOTICE: Repeated flying to LVC will damage
the battery.
7
EN
Control Centering
Before the first flights, or in the event of an
accident, make sure the flight control surfaces
are centered. Adjust the linkages mechanically if
the control surfaces are not centered. Use of the
transmitter sub-trims may not correctly center the
aircraft control surfaces due to the mechanical
limits of linear servos.
1. Make sure the control surfaces are neutral
when the transmitter controls and trims are
centered. The transmitter sub-trim must be
always be set to zero.
2. When needed, use a pair of pliers to carefully
bend the metal linkage (see illustration).
3. Make the U-shape narrower to make the
connector shorter. Make the U-shape wider
to make the linkage longer.
Centering Controls After First Flights
For best performance with AS3X, it is important
that excessive trim is not used. If the model requires excessive transmitter trim (4 or more clicks
of trim per channel), return the transmitter trim
to zero and adjust the linkages mechanically so
that the control surfaces are in the flight trimmed
position.
1mm offset of Rudder
After centering the rudder, we recommend adjusting the rudder linkage so the rudder center is 1mm
right (measured at the trailing edge of the rudder)
from center while rudder trim on your transmitter is
at neutral.
1mm
Settings for Control Horns
The following illustration shows the factory settings
for linkages on the control horns. After flying,
carefully adjust the linkage positions for the desired
control response.
Aileron
Elevator
Rudder
Control Direction Test
You should bind your aircraft and transmitter before doing these tests. Move the controls on the transmitter
to make sure aircraft control surfaces move correctly and in the proper direction.
Make sure tail linkages move freely and that paint or decals are not adhered to them.

EN
If using the DX4e or DX5e transmitters, we
recommend activating Expo for smoother control.
For activation and deactivation of the Expo in the
DX4e and DX5e, see the next section.
NOTICE: Do not set your transmitter travel adjust
over 100%. If the TRAVEL ADJUST is set over
100%, it will not result in more control movement, it
will overdrive the servo and cause damage.
It is normal for linear servos to make significant
noise. The noise is not an indication of a faulty
servo.

1. Hold the aileron trim switch to the right when
powering on the transmitter.
2. Release the aileron trim switch after a series
of ascending tones to confirm that Expo is
activated.
Deactivate Expo
1. Hold the aileron trim switch to the left when
powering on the transmitter.
2. Release the aileron trim switch after a series
of descending tones to confirm that Expo is
deactivated.

Adjusting Center of Gravity (CG)
The CG location is 26mm back from leading edge
of the wing at the root. This CG location has been
determined with the included 2S 200mAh 7.4V
Li-Po battery installed in the front of the
battery cavity.
The battery tray is oversized to allow for Center of
Gravity adjustment. Start by placing the battery at
the front edge of the battery tray with the connector
plug facing the rear of the aircraft. Adjust as needed
by sliding the battery back or forward.

Flying Tips and Repairs
Flying
We recommend flying your E-flite® UMX Gee Bee R2
outside in moderate winds or in a large gymnasium.
Always avoid flying near houses, trees, wires and
buildings. You should also be careful to avoid flying
in areas where there are many people, such as busy
parks, schoolyards or soccer fields. Consult local
laws and ordinances before choosing a location to
fly your aircraft.
Takeoff
Place the Gee Bee R2 in position for takeoff (facing
into the wind if flying outdoors). Gradually increase
the throttle to full power, holding a small amount
of up elevator and steering with the rudder. Climb
gently to check trim. Once the trim is adjusted,
begin exploring the flight envelope of the
Gee Bee R2
Landing
Land into the wind. This is very important for this
model. Fly the aircraft to approximately 6 inches
(15cm) or less above the runway, using a small
amount of throttle for the entire descent. Keep the
throttle on until the aircraft is ready to flare. During
flare, keep the wings level and the airplane pointed
into the wind. Gently lower the throttle while pulling
back on the elevator to bring the aircraft down on all
three wheels.
Failure to lower the throttle
CAUTION
stick and trim to the lowest
possible positions during
a crash could result in
damage to the ESC in the
receiver unit, which may
require replacement.
Over Current Protection
(OCP)
Always
The Gee Bee R2 is
decrease throttle at
equipped with Over Current
propeller strike.
Protection. OCP protects
the ESC from overheating
and stops the motor when the transmitter throttle
is set too high and the propeller cannot turn. OCP
will only activate when the throttle is positioned just
above 1/2 throttle. After the ESC stops the motor,
fully lower the throttle to re-arm the ESC.
Repairs
Crash damage is not covered under warranty.
Repair this model using foam-compatible CA glue
or clear tape. Only use foam-compatible CA glue
as other types of glue can damage the foam. When
parts are not repairable, see the Replacement Parts
List for ordering by item number.

Warranty Services
Questions, Assistance, and Services
Your local hobby store and/or place of purchase cannot
provide warranty support or service. Once assembly, setup
or use of the Product has been started, you must contact
your local distributor or Horizon directly. This will enable
Horizon to better answer your questions and
service you in the event that you may need any
assistance. For questions or assistance, please direct
your email to productsupport@ horizonhobby.com, or
call 877.504.0233 toll free to speak to a Product Support
representative. You may also find information on our
website at www.horizonhobby.com.
Inspection or Services
If this Product needs to be inspected or serviced, please
use the Horizon Online Service Request submission
process found on our website or call Horizon to obtain a
Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Pack
the Product securely using a shipping carton. Please note
that original boxes may be included, but are not designed
to withstand the rigors of shipping without additional
protection. Ship via a carrier that provides tracking and
insurance for lost or damaged parcels, as Horizon is
not responsible for merchandise until it arrives and is
accepted at our facility. An Online Service Request is
available at www.horizonhobby.com under the Support
tab. If you do not have internet access, please contact
Horizon Product Support to obtain a RMA number along
with instructions for submitting your product for service.
When calling Horizon, you will be asked to provide your
complete name, street address, email address and phone
number where you can be reached during business hours.
When sending product into Horizon, please include your
RMA number, a list of the included items, and a brief summary of the problem. A copy of your original sales receipt
must be included for warranty consideration. Be sure your
name, address, and RMA number are clearly written on
the outside of the shipping carton.
Notice: Do not ship LiPo batteries to Horizon. If you
have any issue with a LiPo battery, please contact the
appropriate Horizon Product Support office.
Warranty Requirements
For Warranty consideration, you must include your
original sales receipt verifying the proof-ofpurchase date. Provided warranty conditions have
been met, your Product will be serviced or replaced free
of charge. Service or replacement decisions are at the
sole discretion of Horizon.
Non-Warranty Service
Should your service not be covered by warranty
service will be completed and payment will be
required without notification or estimate of the
expense unless the expense exceeds 50% of the retail
purchase cost. By submitting the item for service you are
agreeing to payment of the service without notification.
Service estimates are available upon request. You must
include this request with your item submitted for service.
Non-warranty service estimates will be billed a minimum
of ½ hour of labor. In addition you will be billed for return
freight. Horizon accepts money orders and cashiers
checks, as well as Visa, MasterCard, American Express,
and Discover cards. By submitting any item to Horizon
