LOL. Take it you won't be getting one then. I think I would have one but only after the Beast.

Man, I've always wanted a Gee Bee and I can't wait till this one comes out. It's got a nostalgic look to it. My daughters thinks it's either the funniest or coolest plane they've seen. I tell you what, if the Gee Bee was being released before the Beast, I'd be getting the Gee Bee for sure!! Still going to get both but, I'm just sayin'.

I have been flying the Gee Bee on Realflight and it flys soooo much better than it looks like it could. Slows down to a crawl and very stable. I don't know how "real-world" it is, but I think I want to try this new model for sure.

Hmmmm
If the control surfaces are going to be adjusted numerous time per second in bumpy flight conditions isn't that going to ruin the servos pretty quick ?

Really keen on this new Beast

If one assumes "use" is the same as "ruin".

Company spokesman said that is part or maybe all the reason they changed the servos on the new models.

Hmm, now that's a very insightful observation...

Doesn't ruin them...they just get carbon buildup much faster...

...those of us who own and frequently fly the MCPx CP heli have resigned ourselves to the the fact that the servos need to be on a fairly rigorous maintenance schedule...possibly for this very reason. After all (correct me if I'm wrong) the MCPx FBL gyro system is the granddaddy of the AS3X system....


Bud, always has a spare clean servo ready Bud

As to the point of weather its cheating or not, I say if thats the case go ahead and send back your fancy radios with the premixed channels, and endpoint adjustments, and expo, and dual rates. Its all cheating to that end, I remember when we had none of it, And I cherish the day that I was able to purchase my first computerized radio, holy cow what a day. I have a feeling that, what you are seing here will be the same thing.
After you fly your buddys you will go Ive got to have one of those it feels right. Dont just pass it off as a cheaters patch to 3D Use it as a tool to make your flights more fun and get more out of your models. Besides Ive seen alot of you fly and your never going to be 3D pilots with out it. LOL LOL .........

All I can say to that is wait till you need some service on your futaba radio, then you will understand why we all use spektrum, and JR radios. It made a beliver out of me. Now when I drop a G for a radio I know my radio is covered for the actual time of the warrenty and and a few cases much longer. There Service is Holy cow good. MY 2 Cents
