Who decides that they only need "1" Beast?!?!

bigs,

Shocking...to say the least!



I currently own three.
All flyable.
Wish I had 6-8 more.

Bigs,

My thoughts, as well! I've got a pair of B3Ds & a pair of original Beasts. One of the originals is NIB.

RC,

I think you're onto something, there. A Beast for each day of the week plus a spare would be just about right...

Hope your summer is going well. Looks like it's KICS time again! Haven't pulled the trigger on the F-16 yet, but I plan to after I'm done with my house-search. The P3 will definitely be a must-have. The 15-size Pawnee night-flyer also looks interesting.

Joel

Joel,

Busy Summer around here...

Just got Son #3 married last weekend.
Daughter in High School.
Youngest Son in Junior High.
School starts on Thursday.

BabbelBatts is keeping me hopping.
I work my full-time job in my spare time.

Been flying a bunch!!!

My sweet soccer complex parking lot was recently resurfaced.
Smooth and perfect strip now.

Received my new UMX F-16 last week.
Such a beauty!
Reminds me of a plastic model I built many moons ago.
Sad news is my F-16 EDF unit was way out of balance.
I thought she was going to come apart at WOT on 2S BabbelBatts.
Returning her tomorrow for a replacement.

Still kicking around the thought of having a professional video made of my (3S) UMX planes in action.
I think many would be surprised at the performance level that these UMX planes can perform at.

Love my Beast #3!!!

Roger

Have to admit I was a feeling a little irreverent and thought a few times before I pushed post.. I figured what the hey only mean it in jest..

Missing my little Beast which I stupidly sold because SWMBO wanted me to reduce how much garage I was taking up.

Saving for a new one...

Considering how convenient it is to shove into the trunk of my Miata, you gotta know how rough I'm feeling when I talked myself out of charging batts to do some flying today on what is likely the only rain-free day this week with low winds

I totally feel your pain!

I, too, have both the original Beast and the Beast 3D. While the original sits on display in my office most of the time (where people enjoy seeing it ) with a "museum" placard paying tribute to it and it's esteemed pilot Bryan, I do take it out occasionally to fly on calm days. It's still a beautiful flier. Since it's doubtful I could replace it, I tend to fly it a bit carefully.

The 3D "Lil Beastie" on the other hand? She's the most versatile plane in my hangar and THE go-to plane. I join Joel in saying that I fly the other planes, but the Beast is an extension of my fingers. Poetry in motion in the air.

Enjoy your Beast...n get yourself a Lil Yak for some more big s!!

Tom
