Alan,

I'm also an old nitro/gas/giant-scale guy. I've only been into electric aircraft for about 4 years. My, how far we have come!

My information on the new goodies comes directly from Horizon's engineering group & their director of aircraft development. The guys are nearly regulars on some of the threads.

BTW - the Beast 3D is excellent in the wind. In fact, it handles the wind better than many of my 40-size ships! I've flown mine in 19 MPH winds with no problems at all.

Here's a clip of me having fun with the Beast 3D in a gusty 8-19 MPH wind:
