I have not spent much time trolling through these threads in the last few weeks. Has the price of the Beast been dropped to $99? Im going to have to jump on one of these if its true. If so where can I get one for that price? I checked amazon but they still higher.

Wow this is a blast from the past!

No the Beast 3D is not $99.

Before the Beast 3D was released HH dropped the price on the Beast V1 to $99. They are discontinued now and no one, that I know of, has them in stock. The Beast3D is going for $139 as a BNF Basic. That is a great deal if you ask me.

A big whoops here - I had the servo plug inverted so got it completely back to front!

Start counting the pins from the right side of the socket!!!

UMX Beast and JR10x


Just wanted to add in this thread (since I couldn't find anything on it elsewhere) that I was able to easily bind a JR10x (spektrum module upgraded) to my new Beast.

Incase anyone else was looking for any feedback on that combo.

My Beast had its final flight yesterday. after many many repairs. this 1 has ended it for good.
kicked a Stall turn at the top, ailerons roll on the way down and pulled out inverted and it tried rolling out :S there was a crack in the elevator that i think gave me some adverse roll on full down elevator
sad times.

The B3D would probably be even better, provided you have a good power system. The B3D has enough drag already adding floats would increase this even more. However the B3D has much more lift than an sbach and should make for some nice slow landings.

I had a verrrry interesting flight with my Beast 3D over the weekend.

I was down fairly low in a high alpha harrier. There was a bit of wind from my back which was pushing the plane away from me. When I went to get out of the harrier to fly back the plane got very squirrely. I lost orientation for a moment but was able to get it back into a harrier which, by the way, it seemed to be doing very well except that I could not track into the wind with that much surface area for the breeze to push on. Every time I try to get out of the harrier to fly back towards me it just goes nuts. I’m scratching my head wondering if the elevator is stuck or maybe something has screwed up in the stabilizer.

I gain some altitude give it full throttle and push in about 50% down elevator to finally get it headed back towards me. As it approaches I pull back the power and do an elevator down to a very nice (if I do say so myself) harrier landing on the taxi way. All the controls seem to be working normally and I was at a loss to figure out what had happened until I went to remove the battery… which just happened to be all the way back in the tail!

Good job getting her down well!

I knew what the problem was by the third sentence....

Yeah the B3D is quite the hover machine with the battery laying back under the canopy behind the brick
Had that happen twice to me.

Hello, I just ordered a UMX Beast and was wondering how well it really flies stock out of the box. I'm pretty well versed in the Horizon/Blade "marketing" and I have all their micro helis and do quite well with the, especially the 130 X.

So... I ordered a UMX Beast as my first stabilized UM plane and was wondering what to expect since I can fly helis very well and larger airplanes. I already have a bunch of 2S batteries from the 130 X that should work just fine. Thanks.
