THE BEAST:OFFICIAL BUILD THREAD!

Hey guys, our good buddy Reza is back, and this time he is going to do a detailed build of Horizon Hobbies new Bi-Plane THE BEAST... Take it away Reza!

Hi Everyone,

Itís been about 3 week since the release of the Beast and I have been kicking on the idea of doing a full blown build thread but time has been really limiting until now that I have some spare time and quite frankly canít wait any longer to get her in the air.

Some of our friends showed some pics and already flying theirs and I hope that they will come on this thread and share with everyone their experience as well so we can channel the information on this plane down to one thread just like the Python! Speaking of the Python have you noticed that build thread is still active and people are communicating and having fun!

There will be lots of pics and some videos at the end of the build. I think I should be able to finish in two weeks due to work schedule. I will answer your questions but this will happen mostly in the evening when I get home. Sometimes I can answer around noon time at my lunch time as well.

I have some plans on trying different exhaust systems as much as my budget allows along with some different props on the Mighty DA-120 that I will be using.

I will also make my program available for whoever wants it!

Without further ado, here are some pics to kick this off!

Thanks Sleepy!

Hey guys,

Wow, it's been a while I have done one of these threads. I am looking forward to it! Maybe this thread help me get my act together and finish this thing quick.

I am going to do things a little different than H9 manual! I am planing on finishing the tail first and be done with all the gluing and flying wires.

Any questions are welcome. I will do my best to help out as much as I can.

Re: THE BEAST:OFFICIAL BUILD THREAD!

I will set up my plane with below components:

1. DA120 and different exhaust systems (this will be an ongoing thing and will take time)
2. JR 8911HV (My experience with 8711HV on QQ-Yak 120" has been great but this time I opted for less expensive 8911HV which uses the same gear train as 8711HV although case is same as 8711 but of course it is High Voltage)
3. Batteries undecided but will go really light, maybe follow the manual on the batteries which were Spektrum 2000 I think, we'll see)
4. RX AR9100
5. Throttle 8917HV or JR 4721 with voltage step down regulator such as the one heli guys use
6. Got my spinner already. Opted with Tru-Turn yellow
7. VBR and will balance my spinner and prop
8. Mejz 27x12TH prop, budget allows will try more props. For now I am going with what I saw when I was at Nall! Awesome performance

I guess I covered the major stuff!
Will have pics of the start of the project this evening!

Go with the 8917 HV. Have been using that servo on the throttle since it came out. It really rocks.

Hey Reza! I could do a build thread too but for the one We built in Florida.....It is 297% bigger though and has a 10,000CC motor!! Maybe not the same info that you will provide here..

Looking forward to following the build.

BTW, those going to EAA Airventure this week, stop by and see the Full Scale Beast at the IAC Aerobatic Center. We will be there with it and several other model 12's.

Re: THE BEAST:OFFICIAL BUILD THREAD!

Sweet Reza... I was going to do a build thread as well... but it went together by accident!

I'm running the same servos, 8911's, the spektrum 6010 digital (4721's aren't available anymore), using the new Spektrum 12 channel high power receiver with Thunder power 2600mah lipo's.

I'm using an old DA100 and will probably go to a set of RE2's.
