I wish someone will give us a sneak peak of the mostro 700 for the people who has preorder them!
But then again,Look in the bright side, atleast it's getting beta tested by the pros instead of the customers!..LOL

I'm pretty sure it will be one of the best 700 size heli out in the market.

Why?

My guess would be that you can't fly a drawing.

I got tossed off of helifreak for saying that the release date was a joke, and I am right.

If your one of those that buys electronics for a heli that is suppose to come out, make sure you've got a five year warranty. Nothing like realizing a part that you just installed NIB is defective and the warranty period has expired.

@Zaneman007, if I don't get the mostro 700 kit by end of October I'm pulling out from my order!

I hate to do it, but your right about there kits being known to be postponed to general public.

I'm hoping it will not be dejavu like last time with the auroras.

Same old same old

Don't get me wrong, the guy makes a great heli, but.......

His word isn't worth the paper it's written on. When Avant first came out, a kit was raffled off at IRCHA to a lucky winner. What he didn't mention is that it was a one off, and production kits wouldn't be out for over another year.

IMO, this heli could come out in a year to three years, or not at all. And if he had a flying prototype we would have seen it.

Old Guys Rule!

History always repeats itself.. Not just with heli's. I would say 6 months to a year.

TDR > Mostro by leaps and bounds. Good call, it is proven already and exists. I might be biased as I own one as well. You will love it.

On Avant's side at least it is a refundable deposit and isn't charged till it ships.

Avant originally said the release date would be approximately 45 days after ircha, putting it in late september. This was revised to around october 10 because during testing, Avant found that when using a high power setup, the one way bearing would slip during hard maneuvers. The original one way and pulley was updated to a new, larger pulley and belt with a double one way bearing instead of a single one way. Avant took a loss on this, as 7 parts in total needed to be changed (including frames), at no extra cost to the customers. Additionally, Avant found that there was premature wear in the swashplate bearing. All the kits are having their swashplates replaced with updated versions, again at no extra cost to the customers. All of this information is stated here: http://www.avantrc.com/index.php/the-new

I am not getting into an arguing match, but originally it was links from the Aurora and so on causing the delays.. Same story, different day. As I think it is a nice looking heli, but would never support his product.
