Simo71,

If you are looking for a great flying indoor 3D plane that hovers great, get the UMX Extra using Hyperion 180's. That's a wonderful flying plane but limited to indoors or 3mph winds.

Really great! We're doing very well. There's the practical teamwork too. But it's only 1.5 months old... thanks for asking!

I'm plenty nice... just annoyed when right after I take the time to write a detailed flight report, (and others did as well) that someone comes in blind and asks how the plane flies?

Didn't mean to hurt any feelings.

SORRY Nice thing would have been to give me a link to your post and just YOUR post. I came here read about 5 pages decided to jump to the last page

Just found your lil post, well so it sounds like it doesn't fly any better then the v1 beast, I can hover mine , harrier great. slow flight is awesome, and has unlimited vertical with the stock prop. I even can fly mine in about 10MPH + winds w/o issue

Still waiting for my Beast - otherwise I'd have some video on 'Tube by now! I brought my tx, hatcam, and a few freshly-charged Hyp 180 2s packs to work with me every day last week - just so I'd be able to maiden it in the LHS parking lot & get some video before dusk, if I got the call.

It's supposed to be in the high 30s with light winds on Mon & Tues, with freezing drizzle on Mon. Hope the wx is decent when I get mine. I don't want a repeat of last year. When I maidened my first V1 Beast on 11/20/2010, the temp was +15 F & the wind was 10 MPH - gusting to 17. And I didn't have a tx mitt.

You sure got a different v1 beast than the 2 I got. Absolutely no way my v1's have unlimited vertical with the stock prop. With the 5043, though, they drill holes in the sky. I can fly them fine in 10mph winds but I don't find it much fun.

It'd be nice to see the V1 hover sometime if you have or can make a video. I'd like to see how twitchy it is, etc.

The new beast seemed to get the official seal of disapproval among the locals here today. Our local king of 3d tried his out indoors and left with the pieces with the intent of finding a donor frame for the electronics. Seems that the extra weight made it even more fragile than the original. The flight report was that it was less sensitive than the original, but did not approach 3d level for his skills. He couldn't get it into a hover, tried changing the control rods for more throws and still couldn't. A few slight miscues later and it was pretty well trashed. Wish he would have tried it outdoors in some wind first so I could see how that worked out.
