Don't forget the Blitz Avro, due to be released on the 28th August 2007!... See below for the website. Having seen two fly (one set up for 3D the other F3C) at the 3D Masters it certainly looks like a model that will compete well against the Aurora and Synergy's....

i never mentioned that for a reason as he said next year. you can buy a blitz this month.

probably not a viable option given the price though but worth a look none the same if it's in budget.

i will not be doing anything till i see what align do so my pair of synergys are very safe.

cheers

I wonder if Aurora people will jump ship if the Avro comes out first. I remember hearing about the Aurora a loong time ago and recently checked the Avant forums to see how it flew and was surprised to see that it still was not out!

That Avro is showing $1800 list for the kit. No idea what street price will be, but it will be a tough road at double a Stratus, Aurora, or Synergy. It looks gorgeous and well designed.

I'm hopin' IRCHA for an Aurora launch. Align will have something in a while. Hirobo definately had a new 90 head at 3dm. Perhaps a ship soon as well.

Should be some new options soon.

Well, ya it will compete to the Aurora, it looks like a copy of the Aurora, just another knock off imo. I do not like the belt drive transmission design, what a pain.

an aurora knock off? how can you knock something off that doesn't exist? the blitz is far from a copy and i'm not saving them, i think it's waaaaaaay overpriced. but aint no way thats a copy.

cheers

I'd have to say the frame layout is very similar to the Avant which has been out for years. Certainly isn't a original design idea(besides the belt transmission) so it is a copy.

And the Avant EFX was based off of Hirobo, so that is a copy. And the Aurora was based off of the Avant, so that is a copy. etc, etc...

Oh, and "programmable head?" No such thing. It is a tuneable head, maybe more tuneable than others, but definitely not programmable. Let me see someone "program" it to flare by itself in an auto.

New slogan:
"Avant Aurora. So far ahead of its time, it's still not available today."

Where did you get that??? It is a conversion kit for the Hirobo.

This is going too off topic, sorry.

Not to be facetious, but you just answered your own question.

My point is simply that the Aurora was not created in a vacuum. It had to be based, copied, modeled after, etc... something.

Which heli has not taken an idea from another and tried to pass it as their own or improve on it. As far as i know the bergen collective pitch and Hanseleits/ Joker rotor heads are the only orginal ideas in the last 10 years.
