Amrmatt,

As Bryan suggested - fly it!! The non-stabilized Beast is a dream to fly. She's an impeccable flier in calm conditions & light breezes, and does exactly what you tell her to do. The Beast 3D does fly a lot bigger, but the V1 still flies pretty big for such a tiny bipe. The biggest difference between the two in flight is how they behave in gusts & turbulence. The V1 Beast handles a crapload of wind & turbulence for such a small plane, but the AS3X version's ability to handle full-scale weather is nothing short of jaw-dropping. Here's a clip I shot of both planes back when the new version came out, which compares the two in a fairly stiff breeze:

UMX Beast 3D vs Beast V1 in the wind (17 min 4 sec)

+100!! Joel and Bryan are absolutely right. I have both V1 and B3D and LOVE 'em both.

I keep my V1 in my work office on display most of the time. Folks really enjoy looking at it and are always impressed by it's looks and quality...
and that it's a cool part of rc aviation history!

But I do pull it out for some super fun flying on calm days. I'm not as aggressive with it as with my B3D simply because it can't be easily replaced.

But it's still such a sweet flier. And sometimes it's really fun to fly without AS3X...just for grins. And like the B3D, the original "Lil Beastie" always brings my face big s!!

Hope you really enjoy yours!

Tom

If there is no wind, and you are not doing prop hanging flight, you will never notice the lack of AS3X
