Yep!!!...The Beast 3D is still my favorite all around plane and excells at wind surfing over all of my other AS3X planes...I managed to wind surf my CC this evening before the rains set in and I was pleased...I surfed both with and without flaps---With the flaps deployed I could fly backwards in the winds without any problem...Without flaps the CC was predictably less boyant in the winds but still a pleasure to surf/fly by keeping the throttle advanced...I'm a happy camper!!!...Before the prop swap I was concerned that I had a real turd that was only flyable in calm winds...I can't believe that I let a rookie mistake like an out of balance prop whip my butt---But such is life!!!
