Does anyone know (team guys chime in here please) if the E-Avant has a fixed pinion or can I change it to suit my needs? I know it has different ratios available but what exactly does that mean? The Align 700E has a fixed motor/pinion so you are locked in to a specific KV range. I hope that is not the case with the Avant Any info will be appreciated.......Ron

The pinion is supported top and bottom but both the motor mount and pinion support can slide back and forth in the frames to accomodate other ratios. The stock pinion used with the 4035-500 is 10T but the 12T pinion has been used with other motors as well.

This pic shows the slotted frames.

Best.

Does anyone know if you can fit the 5020-450 beast in that frame?

Correct - The main gear has 99T. It shares this part (and many other parts) with the nitro Aurora.

Avant's website has been updated with pictures, drawings and specifications of the production eAurora - check it out.

That's a different way to say in two weeks. As a matter of fact I like that better.

You know "what's the day after today"..."tomorrow", there's always tomorrow. In this case however it should mean now "next week" as that was written "last week". We shall see, call me crazy, but I'm buying it! (the date and the heli)

In all seriousness, I am pretty confident that they will ship by mid month. Things have greatly improved at Avant with addition of the U.S. factory.

Looking at that picture, does the top part of the pinion go into another bearing, or do you need a motor with a longer-than-usual shaft?

E-Avant...
Well....I will be surprised if the kits actually hit the shelves...parts have never been a problem with Avant...but getting kits has been a different story...lol..

Seriously though..I really do hope to see these hit the shelves soon...I am looking forward to putting the spare parts and Canopies I already have to use!
