I'm thinking that missing deadlines isn't the issue, it's the setting of deadlines that you know you won't meet. You're appeasing people and then continually pull the rug out. You can't leave this message on your homepage for 2 months or more without explaining what the issue is, and it doesn't come across as being very sincere in hindsight:
We wanted to give you an update on the electric Aurora release. We are pretty much done and we're getting ready to release. We're very happy that we will be able to do so within the time frame we were planning which was around 90 days after the IRCHA Jamboree. We are currently doing a few finishing touches like finalizing updating the manual that comes in the CD and finishing some bags packing after that we'll start shipping to dealers in the US first and right after that to the rest of the world. There will be some new additional dealers in the US as well that will be announced at the time of shipping.
How far past IRCHA now, and you've done a release before, so haven't you learned from those issues to do better in the future.

Flying $uck$...All of the money out of my bank account!

E-Aurora and Aurora 50...!!!!
I my self have been on a waiting list for the 90 nitro for 18 months as of today. Do you guys really think you will see the electric 90 or a 50 nitro. It will be just like the 90 He will release some kits It will be a finley enginered helino doubt , but what has any of Avant's past track history with filling orders gives you the confidence you will be able to get one.

My wise old granny told me many times "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me!".

It will be released when it's released, and nothing we say, or do will change that. Even if, or when these models see the light of day, it will be hard to get one because production is so painfully inadequate to meet the demand. Crazy problem to have in this economy for sure.

Here is my prediction: $1000 will be just for the airframe. You'll have to choose a CC 110HV or a Jive 80/120HV for the ESC because that is what the frame is designed for.

I would disagree and suggest it will be cheaper than its Nitro brother:

As you dont get or need:

Fan shroud
Engine hub
Fan
Engine Mounts
Clutch
Clutch Bell
One Way starter shafts and bearings
Fuel Tankand some small bits like clutch liner tank rubbers etc

In the E you will only need the additon of a Electric motor mount and some velcro maybe!!

So it would be reasonable to assume it will be in fact cheaper :-)

doubt it look at the rave 90. same price whether you buy fbl, flybared, electric or nitro. Your also paying for the separate R&D, additional frames being made for the batteries, etc. Betcha same price

Some quick technical questions for the e-Aurora: is the main gear 1.0M? Also, any idea which Scorpion motor this is, something like 4035-500?

The Aurora and E Aurora use the same main gear, and it has its own special module. Its about a 1.2 mod if you were to classify it in a mod class.
