and after two weeks of waiting, no reply from Avant Customer service on my issues with my Mostro ie: T/R grip ball end galling, Finish pulling off with shipping scotch tape. I know Synergy would have been all over it...Oh yeah I had no issues with my N7 OR N5c or my TSA or my Gaui or my Goblins....just saying....

Sorry I was not clear !!!!
When contacting Avant i used the Address listed on their web page for customer service...The galling happened when I was installing the "ball end" onto the T/R grip pitch horn The threads "locked" into (galled) the pitch horn i.e. it would not move in the loosen or tighten direction. When I applied more torque in the loosening direction it twisted off at the pitch horn and left about 3/4 of the threaded grip length in the pitch horn so I had to order a new set of ball ends and a T/R grip set for a total of 49.00 bucks so I now have a grand total of a cool thousand dollars in this Heli.. I also still have a dime sized white spot on the Aft. end of my $1000.00 Heli from where the shipping tape pulled the "paint" from the gel coat..... On a side note I am a certificated aircraft mechanic and do know galling when it happens....

Have you tried contact them through the other forums? That's your best bet. If you have and you still haven't seen resolution...I say call in your mayday, jump ship, and get as far away as you can. They'll eventually implode if in fact, their current service and quality standards are lacking. Even MA couldn't hold on and they made great product and really cared about their customers.

Plus, they couldn't possibly be selling enough volume to say aloft when even the major brands are having a tough time in the market right now. I don't really see them for sale anywhere. I don't see them at any events and folks rarely mention anything about them where I am.

You may be being "punished" so to speak for stirring the pot. And if you really want to get that heli working, you'll need to drink the Kool-Aid before they'll acknowledge you.

Bail out my friend...just my opinion.

Stirring the pot was what i wanted to do ie: shed some light on my plight to help others avoid the AVANT pit fall OR see that they would stand up and make it right. I do wish I would have heard from there customer service through "normal" channels, but that is not happening..... SO MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY I'm running back to my Synergy, Goblin, TSA, Gaui, MA, and Hirobo helis. cuz the Avant Kool-Aid sucks ( kind of sour)
