Yes of course I've flown it many times throughout the development. A couple answers.
The Y-Harness listed is so two of the 1S 150mAh batteries can be used. So may of those out there. Performance isnt as good as the 2S 120 is a 20C battery but its OK and lets you use the 150s you have.

The aileron servos are where they are because the vertical CG of an aerobatic model is critical to avoid coupling with rudder. It would be too high if on the top wing. We have never had any issue with hurting the servos. You wouldnt want to fly it w/o landing gear ever. Thats just wrong. If you were, I'd assume your flying over grass anyway so its a non issue there.
Beast vs. SukhoiXP. The Beast flies bigger. The BL power is smoother and bigger and the weight and larger area gives it a more solid, bigger feel. As its a bipe, as is typical it has better rudder authority than a mono without SFGs
