Considering I can't get it to upright harrier (I blame a lack of control authority and being a bit down on power), I think I'll have to practice with something else first. I'm still getting the hang of inverted rudder control. One thing the Beast does fine is inverted circuits and figure 8's. It's fun for that.

I do the same thing. And first place is pretty much a tie between the Beast 3D, CC, and Jug - with the Pitts close behind in second. I also agree with you regarding the Yak. It lacks personality in flight. Pretty much the polar opposite of the Beast, CC, and Jug. I didn't even feel bad when HH gave the Yak the axe.

BEAST!! Add up everything you love about flying an airplane and I guarantee this plane will hold its on in all and bust all the other ones to its limits. There is something about it that NO plane in the UMX to 280 will replace

PS no science to back this up just simple opinion.... Lol

Snuck away from work a little early to grab a few minutes of low-wind daylight. Man! I love flying this plane! Unfortunately, during some of my high-g maneuvering (outside loop, I think), my battery slid forward and threw off the battery hatch. I have no idea where it went. HH doesn't sell the battery hatch by itself any more. I saw on eBay that 2 different model numbers for the fuselage are available. EFLU-4058 and -4858. 4858 is the current fuse for the UMX Beast. I'm thinking that 4058 is for the previous non-AS3X Beast. Does any know if the -4058 fuse (and specifically the battery hatch on it) will fit the AS3X Beast?

I may have an extra battery hatch from a rebuilt Beast. To answer your question I believe both fuses are the same, with gold paint / decals on the original and silver on the AS3X version. Let me check if I have the hatch when I get home... if I have one, it's yours - I'll send it to you. There's nothing to gain in buying a whole $20+ fuse just for a hatch.

Ben, I greatly appreciate it! I'll certainly cover the shipping. The old EFLU4058 A/F goes for $5 - $7 on eBay (shipping included); so, that wouldn't break the bank if the hatch would fit the AS3X Beast. If you find your spare hatch, and are willing to part with it, please PM me.

Thanks,
Chuck

I forgot to check for the Beast hatch... crud. I'll send myself an email now to look for it when I get home. I had family in town and also had carpet cleaning going on last night and it just slipped my mind.

I have currently the P3 on the first place but have not really a static rank it depends more on weather or location. With much wind the stryker and the EDFs are prefered. With thermal or on a slope ASK, Whipit and the Radian are the best and sometimes simply one plane that i had a long time not flown
