You could probably slow it down quite a bit by using the Hyper Taxi's 5.5x2 prop. The larger prop disk & flatter pitch will act as a larger speed-brake on downlines, and it should also be great for slow 3D. The Beast 3D uses the same motor as the HT, so loading shouldn't be an issue. Prop clearance on my Beast when level is 3/4" with a 5043. So, you'd still have 1/2" of clearance with the 5.5x2 prop. I bet it would be a real stump-puller on the Beast 3D!
