Wind-surfing large-scale glow & gas-powered planes

Here's some 'wind-surfing' action that I shot at the club field a few seasons back. A few guys were determined to fly at the spring fly-in - despite the 30+ MPH wind w/45 MPH gusts!

UMX Beast 3D on 3s

And on the opposite end of scale, here's some old hatcam footage of me windsurfing the Beast 3D on 3s in a gusty 26 MPH wind. That plane is simply amazing. Feels like a large-scale ship, but thrust-to-weight on 3s is well-over 3:1. Handles winds that ground most large-scale ships.

Windsurfing the ol' Beast:

Eflite UMX Beast 3D on 3s - in a 26 MPH wind! Stationary KE, elevator landings, etc (8 min 10 sec)


On-board video from the UMX Beast 3D on 3s. Rolling vertical climbs, spins, loops, KE loops, and more. Better grab the Dramamine!
