Its great to see such excitement over the UM Beast. Its very exciting and is a new level of Ultra Micro performance.
A couple of notes in response to a few posts. The electronics are all ours, motor, rx, servos. They were all developed by us, not oursourced off the shelf stuff.
The aileron servos plg into seperate ports, not a Y-harness. With the correct tx, flapperons are possible.
The UMX Beast is amazingly precise, and is very straight and solid on knife edge. Almost no coupling. It will even KE loop.
It is not a 3D airplane. It flies like a good IMAC model with an IMAC set up. Wing loading on UM models is such that getting a model to both 3D well and fly faster and smoothly outdoors is not realistic. The design requirements are kinda polar opposites.

Quque had done a lot of work refining the UMX Beast and I do think you guys will love it.
