Ideal profile UMX Beast

This is just an idea. What if they made a UMX beast bipe but profile like the UM 4-Site? I wonder how would the flight characteristics differ from the original E-Flite/Horizon Hobby model? It would definately be lighter, but what do you guys think?

Hmmmm, it would not be the Beast.... It would be a flat foamy with the Beast color on it. Sure enough, it would fly very well, but for that, as you said, we already have the 4-Site. I'm expecting the Beast to fly more like the real thing, which is what I'm after. Some little things like the tail not behaving perfectly when your finish your loops. Not being able to hover well. Basically, giving me the feeling that I'm flying a heavy plane.

The 4-Site is not hovering well by the way. If they build another flat 3D foamy, I don't care what it will look like.... I want one that hover spot on. The way I see it now, it could be something like a 20" single wing with the new brushless setup... Would be soooo happy.

I'm just getting the suhkoi. And when that tears up i'll gut it and build a homemade 3d foamy. I've justt been in a building mode lately since i have two boxes of depron. I just need a project that i can call my own!
