Due to pilot idiocy
I have gutted my totaled Beast AS3X and sold off the electronics to defray some of the cost. Why? Why did I attempt to fly it (again) in too much wind for me, a novice pilot? And the field I chose was not ideal. Ringed by very tall trees. Plenty of room for my Crack Pitts Biplane, or a good pilot, but too limited for me. A mistake and loss of orientation combined with gusts of wind 50 feet up. Into a tall tree I went, hard. 40 feet up. Went home, got ladder and 20 foot "plane getter". It was totaled after I got it out of the tree, and so was I. I'm too old for this
So, I will try again with maybe an Sbach this spring. I had 3 flights with the Beast. RIP.
