The E-flite® Beast 60e ARF biplane embodies everything you'd expect from a design created to deliver stunning feats of aerobatic artistry. The full-scale Beast is the brainchild of renowned aircraft restoration expert, Kevin Kimball, who actually collaborated with 3D champ Quique Somenzini on its design. Its dramatic ability to flip, roll and tumble with formidable precision inspired the 100cc Hangar 9® Beast that's widely recognized as a modern classic. For this inaugural 60-sized iteration, the E-flite development team worked closely with Quique to ensure the impressive performance and feel of a larger aircraft came through. Because it's been designed specifically with the modern electric pilot in mind, every design element takes full advantage of what potent electric power has to offer including engineered construction that's feather-light. As a result, the Beast 60e is a whole new breed of animal.
Assembly at the field takes just a few minutes and is as simple as installing four screws and four pins. Flight battery replacement is fast too from the magnetic slide-lick top hatch that provides instant access to vital electronics. The recommended E-flite power system was designed around popular and economical 6S Li-Po batteries to provide power you can trust and unlimited performance. So inspired by the agility and presence of the Beast 60e, E-flite engineers developed an even stronger version of the Power 60 brushless motor so that its fierce aerobatic ability could shine through.

I am a little puzzled why Horizon spec'd 6S for this plane... You would think that they would want a 8S setup as the majority of their small planes in the parkzone line are only 3S 1800-2200 so those packs can't scale up, but their larger park offerings like the habu, the new p-51, and more are using larger 4S packs. This would mean that people will probably have a bunch of 4S packs and going 8S would be a logical next step. Also they already have the 1/4 scale PA-18 super cub that has an 8S motor calling for 2 4S packs in series, so they obviously have done it before.
HAH, while I was typing Dave answered my question before I asked it! makes a bit more sense now. I wonder they'll have a e-flite motor they recommend for 8S for those of us with lots of 4S packs.

im pretty psyched for this. i hope it flies decently. i think a motrolfly 4320-450 on 6s5000 packs with a 17x8-17x10 prop would be awesome in this
also looks like they took quite a few design tips from the sebart pitts python. magnetic top half cowling access for battery and motor, pin/dowell insertion for wing retention. could be a cool design. pretty close in size and price to the sebart as well, but updated design. i really hope this becomes a winner

I'll have to wait a while on this since i'm no baller but it looks like it'll be worth it.
