I'm not subscribed at MHW, I just buy an issue when something in cover is interesting... i didn't buy the dec 2005,and just want to read the AVANT. if you read or have it please let me know or comment about the article or the opinion about this heli...worth to know the opinion of Tanner or MHW crew?

I just want to know veredicts and opinions as much as possible to dicide if buy or not; it could be my next heli, depending on this research...

I already talk with Augusto but want to know Point of view different than manufacturer/designer...

I just built an Avant EFX kit.

It is a very nice heli, the fit and finish are great. There were no issues with the build that I didn't cause. The tank install is somewhat of a chore, but Augusto posted a video that worked like a charm.

The instructions are a little vague. That may have just been me as I have never built a Hirobo product before.

I can't tell you how it flies yet as I am waiting for the new OS 91 w the pump. It looks great on the bench!

yep good option Ace Dude, I did it but there was a minor problem I asked the dec 05 issue and they mailed the jan 06 issue ( stratus on cover), meanwhile I just want to know from your experience and your POV about it...

The instructions aren't bad per say, but they really only cover the frame build. (Which is what the Avant really is)

I will be posting a build review tomorrow.

I am also looking at an Avant - It prompted me to purchase MHW The article is pretty generic with some good PICs of the build process and some suggestions - they rated it very high - just like everyone else - I think I will be going for the upgrade with the tax man refund.... If you want I can scan the article and email it to you - just PM me - or purchase the back issue...

Thanks medfoch, I just got the article, and I read it
as you say
high rated as every heli in cover.... but with not any information that point other way than the stratus...
I mean no down points or cons...

but tell us what do you think?

I would like to get an Avant too but:

1. I have a standart Freya so I would need to get the FX... whats the difference between the FX and EFX? Not only the head?

2. CCPM system... The only experience I have with CCPM was building the Hornet X3D and even with duzi head it sucked bigtime... Maybe its too small to setup perfectly or I just suck at setting up CCPM. If you ppl state the avant has poor instructions how the heck am I'm going to setup it?

3. My Arizona Canopy wouldn't fit

Back to topic... I have the Dec issue and wouldn't mind make a scan of the article. PM me if interested.

Oh well

Tony

I saw the avant at IRCHA. I am a bad one to ask because I am Hirobo all the way. MA makes great products, but repair cost and maintenance keep me away. I know my x-spec just keeps flying flight after flght - so since I am already Hirobo through and through the next logical step is avant. If I was a MA man I may feel different, but the Avant is the Hirobo's MA. - just my 2 cents...

I have an Avant FX and it is the best thing that I have flown, and the performance is breath taking. The building instructions are good and the build itself is easy. A few people at the club have flown it and have nothing but praise for it.

Just smile

hey medfoch! you are the one of the right people to emit an opinion... tell us what do you think about the change from a evo90 to an avant and also from a freya or freya xpec to an avant
as you are a hirobo guy how do you feel with this change.. is really a big deal.. or your xpec can do just as the avant....
maintenance cost from a xpec or evo90 to an avant is upstairs or downstairs?

Patriot Did you ever flown MA like fury extreme? Could you compare them?

PPLON no I haven't but a friend who flies MA Fury Extreme flew my Avant yesterday and was very impressed, He stated that in the larger manouvers it was a bit twitchy but for the tight moves the cyclic response was very good, and when he landed he had a big smile on his face

Just smile
