The MCPX heli uses this 3 axis stabilization. I fly one and do minor 3D with it. You don't even know the AS3X is there. Your skill is required to fly these as they are not an automatic recovery auto pilot. Just a system to dampen out unintended input from unstable design and wind.

As a Beast v1 owner I can't wait to purchase v2. I can attest that the Beast design is very robust and can take a lot of abuse. The v1 design was really stable and already had a big plane feel. With the AS3X it will help this plane perform locked in 3D.

I would really like to see a mono plane capable of 3D show up as well. Something bigger than the Sukhoi and lighter wing loading. I love my UMX Extra 300 but would like a bigger scale brushless 3D mono wing. Please Horizon?
