According to this link...

The physics changes seem substantial. You may want to try it before you buy it at an LHS or a friend who has it.

Besides having to put up with these 2 idiots dialog the video was interesting. Plane seemed a bit tail heavy.....maybe it was the wind

That's the idea with the 3D Beast. You can run an aft CG, which improves 3D flight - but the AS3X will keep the plane from getting squirrelly.

Guys, you miss the point of flight test. That is the point making it fresh rather than two boring people stood there talking about the plane like everyone else does. Just saying.

I got sucked into their other videos and found them really interesting. The Fowl Flier was pretty funny. They put a 10 pound turkey in a scratch built turkey carrying electric plane and gave him one last flight.

Their idiotic "banter" is not "fresh". Jovial? JOVIAL?? What the hell did all that have to do with the Beast, or flying? I stopped watching right there. Signal to noise ratio is unacceptably low. Stop wasting my time.

LOL! I agree. I'd much rather watch a more technical review than something like that.

Yep. Hipster 20 year olds may work for teens, but not for grown men. Let's cut to the chase and get the facts and the flying. Who are they trying to market to? Bieber fans?

It is a far better flier and on tthe 6.3 takes off at a very slow speed and cruises much like a VAPOR!
Is this available for purchase - where - how much - more info please, I want one. ---- Thanks

maybe there trying to get the audience from ages say 13-30 i enjoyed it quiet a bit as i do enjoy all there videos maybe your "older" generation people dont enjoy that kind of stuff, there showing the fun side of the hobby while giving a review not a boring review of "and it has a 350mm wing span, the plane can knife edge with precision due to the bla bla bla bla bla" that stuff is boring as hell i enjoy there fresh approach so i think its unfair for you to say that there videos are nothing but idiotic banter and imature wait for your boring review with a 60yo guy sitting infront of the screen outlining every boring part of the plane that people dont care about. Your average flying just wants to see it fly good thats about all he dosnt care about every spec details. Who is your average flyer you ask, well i categorise them as someone who just does this for fun, has no interest in joining upto a club and just enjoys taking a plane out after work or school for a bit of fun!
