Not really. If if needs a correction with rudder or a correction to bring the nose straight up again from right-side up, then no throttle is needed. But inverted, throttle definitely needs to be increased.

You can see the AS3X system working the wind...v1 would be all over the place....that's pretty dang impressive...

This new beast looks really nice. I was looking into the old one when it was $99 but never bought it. Now i might buy this one.

I think the color scheme is better on this one than the old one. It just makes it look better.

So, my wife and daughters just left for a weekend with Grandma so I have a few minutes before it got dark. Popped a fresh 180 in my older UMX Beast and I swear it knows I'm thinking of getting this new Beast 3D. It flew so well, it made me look good. Couldn't pull a hover but, it was so smooth up there!!

Little does my wee Beastie know that I'm not replacing her, I'm just getting it a sister.

Very cool! These AS3X planes are going to take park flyers to a new level.

I hope they will eventualy make the AS3X unit available by itself. It would be nice to be able to put this into a scratch built plane, or some of the various park flyer warbirds, etc.

I don't know if I can justify buying the new one when my v1 flys just fine. Oh well, this will give me an excuse to fly the current beast irresponsibly and when I crash it I can replace it with the as3x version.

I posted this over on the regular beat thread but think it should be here instead.

Hey, I was messing with the GeeBee R2 in Realflight and remembered that a guy from these forums had posted a UMX Beast with gyros for Realflight 5.5. I found it and downloaded and have been playing with it a bit. Don't really know how similar it is to what the HH system will act like, but if you have RF 5.5 you might want to give it a try. You can find the download here http://knifeedge.com/forums/download...=file&id=14824

Sort of fun to play with the wind settings. It looks a lot like the video HH posted of the beast flying in the wind! Definitely need rudder to turn when the gyros are on.

There is also a thread on using gyros at http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1035605

I would, but I would wait until the price dropped a bit. With that said, I prefer the Beast over the Sbach. When it's dead calm out, the Beast is just so smooth at around 60% throttle. I love to fly inverted about 3 feet off the ground. It's so smooth it's not even funny. The Sbach is also nice, but the Beast is such a nice flying plane.

If we're where we are now with UM's and UMX's, just think where we'll be in 2-3 years.
