I would say right now that I doubt I would buy whatever it is because they have wasted my time. (quoted)

We've been reading all these posts, and I have to say that a lot of these posts have wasted a lot of my time. Good thing I do it at work.

Ovaltine? What, a crummy commercial? Son of a.....

Big buildup and missed telling us that you can buy a Spektrum DSMX 7 channel RX with built-in BeastX FBL system for $239.....

Someone in the marketing department needs to be walked out the door....

What it is, is not the GeeBee, the UMX, or the Bipe, it's the application of a 3-axis gyro stabilization system to airplanes. Interesting that the same time the AS3X stabilization system was introduced by these Eflite planes, the Blade series heli was introduced with a Spektrum 7-channel RX with integrated BeastX FBL system.

The UMX and other two vehicles are just a way of introducing a BeastX type 3-axis stabilization system into the Plank world.

Maybe the marketer guy could be let back in the building after all.

Interesting that the latest video doesn't mention any of that stuff. To me it just looked like a little foamy plank that looks hard to fly and maintain orientation. Thats it.

Also the on-board video clue that was shown in the second video. I didn't see any new aircraft with a camera.

But those three aircraft are all over the AS3X page....that's where the clue to the 3-axis gyro stabilization for planks comes from..

So, maybe Mr. Marketeer should be canned after all. He created a lot of hype, and when the rubber hit the road, missed the message with the foamy flyer and ignored the AS3X stuff.

Probably graduated from a High School using Outcome-Based Education.
