It's a draggy biplane with nearly 84 square inches of wing area that weighs all of 67 grams. Just slow it right down to the point it stops flying (which it will do in a great big hurry) and let it flop down onto the grass. With the landing gear on, of course.

I do this with the 4-Site (easier 87 square inches and half weight) and i think i can do this also with the beast but the grass hits direct the little gear in the servo.
I consider to make a little cover to save the servo.

I thought the same thing. They could have easily added a thin cover made from ordinary clear packaging plastic over the servo. As long as they don't sell the little gears separately withouot buying the whole servo, I'd be concerned about that. One little twig could ruin your day.

This BEAST looks awesome. I'm in for sure for my 1st micro.

Noticed the direct drive brushless, so should be nice and quiet.

Was lookin at thier Sukhoi micro but read that it was a little noisy in the motor dept. so this Beast is my micro ticket to fun.

CAN'T WAIT !!

Just watched the vid. So freaking cool

Gotta have the pic to represent it's size

Stoked baby Stoked !!

Brent, I doubt that the beast would be a good choice for your first plane. I would consider the Champ for learning. Just trying to help. Had I got the beast to learn on, it would not have been pretty for long. Happy Flying. Lee

I think he said "first micro" not "first plane." Though I don't think the Beast makes a good first micro unless someone already owns, and is good with, at least a fast sport aerobat. At least a Mini Ultra Stick or a Parkzone Extra 300 or . . . a Habu. 2S micro planes weighing 60 - 70 grams can get tiny in a hurry. No other micro Horizon puts out comes close.

Way to many airplanes!
Brent has 1237 msgs so far... Somehow, I don't think this will be his first plane!!!

He said "first micro"

Welcome to the club Brent, but beware, you may get addicted to fly in close parks around you. (or street, or parking lot, etc)

Edit: Dang, Jimmy beat me to the punch!

Micro's are a disease.. You step out front and fly.. no driving no hassle..

The rest of your fleet may throw fits from neglect!

The adapter cable to use 2 1S batteries comes with the plane.

It's all good boys and thank you for the friendly welcome!!

Yeah 1st micro. I started park flying and then joined a club and they kept getting bigger. I'm doing the H9 64" fokker now, but there is something so appealing about micro, and yes a 2 min walk to the local park is part of it for sure.
I'm mostly into scalish warbirds but fly the living pee out of my 32" ultimate bipe so bring on the Beast....can't wait !!

Too eager to help. Been there, done that!

Is the Beast available yet? I've been waiting already too much since we found about it! (When was that? Two days ago?)
