E-flite UMX Beast 3D Unboxing and Review
 
Hi guys!

Here is my unboxing and review of the UMX Beast 3D. It isn't your typical unboxing and review, but then again you probably shouldn't expect anything typical from me anyhow:

Beast 3D Review Notes

Pros:

- A very attractive plane!
- It comes with a Spektrum receiver
- Is compatible with other UMX battery options
- Solid customer service to remedy the situation

Cons:

- Poorly assembled
- F-Grade QC
- Very disappointing to have two bad ones in a row
- Required me to print out the return label and my account
was only credited AFTER it was received on-site

My Beast didn't fly well at all out of the box. It wanted to climb under full power. What I found was the motor had up thrust. I had to do some cutting and add a piece of balsa epoxied in to get some down thrust. It now fly's the way it should. Several of the flying wires have come loose also and have had to be glued back on.
Fun little no or low wind airplane.

I am considering giving this little guy another try with my 15% HH discount. Hopefully I won't be 3 for three with issues on this plane if I do order it lol
