Eflite UMX Beast 3D Snow Floats Maiden Flight - Snow Beast

This is a Snow Maiden Flight with my UMX Beast 3D outfitted with the UMX Carbon Cub SS Floats.

Eflite UMX Beast 3D Snow Floats Flight - Snow Beast (5 min 11 sec)

With 2 days of a Colorado Blizzard leaving me stuck at home with nothing to do but want to fly my upgraded UMX Beast 3D (3000 Kv Motor / GWS 5030 Prop), what do you do? Outfit it with the UMX Carbon Cub SS Optional Floats and wait for it to stop snowing!

This set of Floats is the same set that I used with the Custom .047 Music Wire Front Arm and Rear Keystone Mounting Bracket that I previously used on my Hobbyzone Champ Crophopper (2S Brushless w/ Ailerons): The Custom .047 Music Wire Front Arm that I made for my Hobbyzone Champ Crophopper (2S Brushless w/ Ailerons) also happened to fit correctly on the UMX Beast 3D, and all that was left to do was create a Mounting Point for the Rear Arm holding the Keystone Bracket. This was accomplished with a small square piece of Scotch Tape on the Rear Mounting Area of the Fuselage, followed by a square piece of Industrial Velcro. The Velcro itself can be removed (when it is applied on top of the square Scotch Tape-surfaced part of the Fuselage) later, damage-free. The Industrial Velcro then attaches to the Rear Keystone, providing a shock-absorbing and secure attachment point.

Winds at the Valor Highschool Football Field were fairly gusty, however proved no match for the UMX Beast 3D's AS3X wind-fighting capability. With the floats, there was noticeable drag, yet the UMX Beast 3D remained very nimble and aerobatic. Using the Eflite 2S 280 mAh Lipos, I was easily able to achieve my 5-Minute Flight Time Mark, leaving the Lipos at 7.67 Volts with no LVC.
