This is the E-Flite Beast 60e ARF Airplane. The Beast 60e ARF embodies everything that you would expect from a design that was created to deliver stunning feats of aerobatic artistry. The E-Flite Beast 60e is the brainchild of renowned aircraft restoration expert, Kevin Kimball, who actually collaborated with 3D champ Quique Somenzini on its design. The Beast’s dramatic ability to roll, flip, and tumble with formidable precision inspired the 100cc Hangar 9 Beast, which is widely recognized as a modern classic.
For this inaugural 60-sized iteration, E-Flite’s development team worked closely with Quique to ensure the feel of a larger aircraft and an impressive performance came through. Because it's been specifically designed with the modern electric pilot in mind, every design element takes full advantage of what potent electric power has to offer - including engineered construction that's feather-light. As a result, the E-Flite Beast 60e is a whole new breed of airplane.
Assembly is as simple as installing four screws and four pins, so it’ll just take a few minutes. The recommended E-Flite power system was designed around popular and economical 6S Li-Po batteries to provide power you can trust and unlimited performance. Flight battery replacement is fast too from the magnetic slide-lick top hatch that provides instant access to vital electronics. So inspired by the agility and presence of the Beast 60e, E-Flite engineers developed an even stronger version of the Power 60 brushless motor so that its fierce aerobatic ability could shine through.
