I would suggest that you continued this discussion on the original thread you started.
Just because the beast isnt a speed demon doesnt mean it wont make your heart pump! Knife edges inches off the ground, slow rolls right off the deck, inverted flight nice and low, trying to do rolling circles, outside loops, knife edge circuits.
The Geebee is a niche plane.
The Beast is a plane that works to suit you.
If you really want something fast get the mig or the stryker.
Honestly, Horizonhobby.com is pretty good at telling you what an airplane is and does.

AS3X Sbach.

Its faster than both and its easier to fix than both when you crash it.

I have both and I prefer the AS3X Sbach.

Between those 2 I'd go beast... but its a distant second to the AS3X Sbach.

What do you want to do with it? Fly around and look scale? Since I fly in my side yard and would rather hover, knife edge, roll and loop than fly around wings level, the GeeBee is out.

I fly my AS3X sbach every chance I get.

If you want something fast, scale looking and can do advanced aerobatics (3D) then get a Beast. The GeeBee is fast and it can do basic aerobatics (loops/rolls), but it won't do 3D aerobatics.

The Beast is the best all round plane. The Gee Bee does one thing well...turn and burn, with a roll or loop every now and then. Of the two I, fly the Beast far more as it can do more.

I don't have an um Gee Bee, so I cannot talk much about it. However, I had a GP Gee Bee, and I sold it locally to a more experience pilot after a few flights. Of course, my GP Gee Bee did not have gyro on it, so my fingers had to work all the time until it got back to the ground. The new UM Gee Bee has a built-in AS3X technology, so it may be more stable in the air. IMO, Gee Bee is not a fun one to flight. My V1 Beast is still with me since day one, and I probalby have spent more time with it than any other planes and helicopters. I purchased an AS3X board, but I have not installed it yet. I bet that I will have more fun and relax with a new gyro board.

Hence, go with a Beast.
