De Havilland Canada developed the DHC-6 Twin Otter in 1965. Designed as a rugged STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) commuter aircraft, the Twin Otter carried passengers and cargo into harsh environments like the sub-zero Antarctic and the scorching North African desert. Viking Air Limited purchased the Type Certificates for all out-of-production de Havilland aircraft in 2005 and announced the Viking Series 400 Twin Otter Production Program two years later. By mid-2015, Viking re-established the Twin Otter as a successful commuter airliner. The E-flite® UMX™ Twin Otter is an ultra-micro class scale replica that can be the perfect first twin-powered model for intermediate to experienced RC pilots. It's convenient and easy to fly, and is outfitted with functional features including LED navigation and landing lights, twin brushless motors with counter-rotating 3-blade props – plus it can be equipped with optional floats to fly from pools, ponds, and lakes!
The Convenient And Easy To Fly Twin!
There's no better choice for RC pilots who want a great first – or next – twin model than the E-flite® UMX™ Twin Otter! It delivers exciting "bush plane" scale looks and performance and the inherent stability of a high-wing design. Because of its convenient ultra-micro size, it can be flown in more places and smaller spaces, including in many yards, parks, and sports fields. You can even remove the landing and install the optional floats (sold separately) to fly from pools, ponds, and lakes! Along with molded-in panel lines, corrugated control surfaces, and a scale-inspired trim scheme, the UMX Twin Otter is also equipped with scale-looking LED navigation and landing lights and exclusive AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. Plus, the brushless motors – with counter-rotating 3-blade props – are compatible with common and affordable 1S 500–800mAh batteries also used for the UMX Ultrix™ and other popular models. The E-flite UMX Twin Otter offers a truly unique flying experience a wide range of pilots can enjoy!
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 model 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 and automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch to make this the easiest to fly Twin Otter replica yet!
The UMX™ Twin Otter is equipped with a control unit/flight controller that includes two ESCs and a 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.
Powerful twin brushless motors with counter-rotating three-blade props deliver an excellent power-to-weight ratio and long flight times with common and affordable 1S 500–800mah batteries. Differential thrust offers yaw control for easy ground handling and performing aerobatics.
The UMX™ Twin Otter can be flown from paved and other smooth surfaces using the tricycle landing gear, or you can fly from water, including pools, ponds, and lakes, using the optional float set (sold separately). And whichever gear option you choose to fly with, both are easy to install and can be swapped out in minutes!
Realistic-looking LED landing and navigation lights are factory-installed and powered from the flight battery to add to the scale look and flying experience.
The UMX™ Twin Otter 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 can be flying within minutes of opening the box.
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.

They have the same connectors but the runtime is much lower so i do not think they will last.

Hi they do not quote flight times as there are too many factors but most people will get around 10 minutes on the 800 mah battery.
