Having fun with the UMX Beast 3D in the wind.
Wind was up, so I went to the field with the 3D & V1 to do a comparison. Wow! What a difference! The AS3X really works extremely well in the gusty conditions. In fact, I'd say that wind-handling is it's strong-point. First, I flew the Beast 3D & then the V1. I was running Hyp 240 2s packs in both planes, with a 5030 on the 3D & a 5043 on the V1. The throws are the same on both planes - elevator & rudder pushrods in the innermost holes, with the aileron pushrods in the second hole out. The Beast 3D was actually fun to fly in that wind! The V1 - not so much. According to the local wx station log, the wind during the following flights was 9 MPH, gusting to 16 MPH.
That was so much fun, I went back to the field after the wind had picked up to 8-19 MPH for another romp with the Beast 3D.
