I know one thing, the GD thing gets here when it gets here, plain and simple. There are plenty of machines to fly and there just isn't enough time in the day or the week to worry about whether or not Auggie the Hutt is able to get his helicopter out.

I'm sure that the sponsored pilots that have Auroras and are getting a check could care less whether or not the machine comes out or not as long as the check keeps coming. They show up to the fun flys, put in their one obligatory flight and off they go to the bar or sitting under the canopy or flying something else the rest of the day.

Whats funny is when this thing does get released, and it will, all of you will have at least one no matter what you posted.
Ante up my friend. Hope your paypal account is full. While you're checking tchavei's '06 posts go ahead and check mine. There was once a day I wanted an Aurora more than air to breathe. Now I wouldn't take a free raffle ticket for one. I too sold helicopters and spent a few thousand to outfit an Aurora that never came. I too learned my lesson.

You're not bad. You're just blind

This isn't about the bird anymore. Its about human relations. I refuse to support someone like Avant.

Another example is the N9. Its not a bad bird. It flies well. However when Synergy pulled the plug on Realraptors, that was the day Synergies stopped flying at our field. Andy has more respect from the guys at our field than any Bad practice company. Thats for sure.

Wow, you sure are confident. *IF* this thing ever gets released, and *IF* there are parts available, and *IF* if lives up to the hype, and *IF* it is not bested (or even equaled by many other designs N9, Trex700)...I still doubt I would get one since I just don't feel like I can trust the company.

I have a Vibe right now and am looking at the N9 and Trex700...I have zero plans to look at the Aurora.

You are not a bad guy IMO. You are just caught up in the lynch mob mentality of those that want someone to blame. Silly really, we are talking about a Toy after all and there are plenty of other designs out there to play with.

My only issue with you was the irony of your posting to complain about others posting to complain....That was just too ironic to pass up.

I guess that is part of the reason I am not on the other side hating the Aurora/Agusto. I don't really care about all of the details, politics, etc. I just like helis. From the Blade to the Stratus, they are all fun and they all have their pros and cons. I have seen the Aurora up close and I have seen it ripping up the skies and it looked like a great heli in both respects. One day I hope to own one, but for now I have 1 or 2 others I can fly to keep me busy. I am in no hurry, I just want to enjoy the hobby. There are so many other great options, it just isn't worth getting all worked up over one that isn't here yet.

At least it gives a clue to why now.

That really sux, I saw that post, it was one of the first that shed light on the subject, it didn't even mention company names either.....given it was promptly deleted I assume it hit a sore spot.
