Hi would those who have converted to the Avant from the EVO90 please tell us what they think they have gained from doing this?

If trying to build an Avant from scratch what would the best parts to use be? apart from the conversion kit obviously.
So things like which head, blade grips etc, the full real deal please, is Augustos head available comercially as I can't find it. is it best to say have a metal head but evo blade grips all information and thoughts welcome
which undercarraige?
which gear set? presumably delrin is best
Has anyone done this and if so was it an expensive route to go?

thanks guys it is really frustrating trying to make purchase decisions blind, I have already recieved a lot of help and information from various people on this site you will all know who you are and I thank you all, it is one of the things that make this hobby great in my opinion
I know in time I am likely to have the synergy evo 90 and Avant because some things just have to be done!
Sitting here in the UK reading what you already have to fly elsewhere in the world gets a bit frustrating!

Best stock head is the same that comes with your EVO-90 kit no upgrades necesary. Also it allows for 710mm blades. Blade grips same as the stock kit.
is Augustos head available comercially as I can't find it.
No but the CarbonXtreme head kit will be out pretty soon. It will be available as a separate upgrade kit not part of the Avant kits. We expect a limited number of units to be available around Christmas. Unfortunately we have no pricing for it yet because we don't have all the machining costs figured out.
is it best to say have a metal head but evo blade grips
Metal yoke makes no difference except for the plastic one being lighter.
which undercarraige?
Stock plastic is the lighter one.
which gear set? presumably delrin is best
For the YS-91 the best combination is 93 main 11 pinion for 8.45 ratio. For OS-91 the best gear set is 97 main and 12 pinion for 8.08 ratio (Hirobo 0404-057 97 tooth main gear + 0414-374 12 tooth pinion) Delrin is always less noisy and stronger but not really necesary.

Augusto.
