All i have to say is make sure you can get AVANT parts whenever you want. I have heard countless times times about being able to get parts is a big issue. Although they are a very sweet heli is it worth it i personly wouldnt do it. Now i do not own a 90 but own the ely 50 for the price i was weary about the quality once i recieved my kit i must say WOW very high quality and it flies so sweet a very locked in feel. Someone please chime in and tell this guy what i mean

I have the ElyQ 50C also. The quality is as good as Align IMO. They fly a bit different with the floating flybar. This can be good or bad depending on your tastes. I think a FBL system would make the heli better.

I have not yet seen the ElyQ 90 in person, but if the 50C is any indication and knowing the 90 is their flagship, I would expect it to be darn good.

On the Avant side, it is made in the USA and the price is competitive. A couple of guys in my RC club have them and are very happy with the Aurora's performance and quality. One guy just converted his to FBL and is very pleased with it.

It's a tough choice. I don't know that either will have parts support like a Trex, but at least it will be different, whether you get the ElyQ or Avant.

Avant vs ely-q 90
I would say go for the ely-q! i own a fbl and the flybarred version. Both are awesome machines. There are a few small building tips that i can give wich are very minor indeed. At one time i was thinking about buying the Aurora but decided against it due to parts and spare frame availability. The nitro is always on back order it seems. If you crashed and broke the frames what would you do?

Hope this helps

Hi all
Ive the vision 90 and to tell you the truth,for there first 90 heli they have exceded,possibly excelled with this kit.The kit quality is superb for its price,there are some build issues(just3),wich if you read this forum you will find the solution too or go onto the elyq web site.They are more of a hinderace than a proper issue.The best place to go is this forum the guys are really friendly and can give advice from there own experiece,you cant beat that.I found the build pretty easy but will say that there are a few steps i would complete before others eg put the elevator servo in at a earlier stage purley to make it easier rather than at the end stage.The kit had no quality defects on any of the machined parts all holes lined up ect,nice quality!Really good radio tray lay out,my v bar and ar7100 and life batt fit perfectly and allowed for a very neat wire installation,Wifeorheli is right you gonna be hard pressed to find a true negative about this heli and im as particular as you can get when it comes to building a heli right.Now the biggest or surly one of the biggest questions to ask when buying a heli is spare parts and the cost of them.Avant spares are not allways availible from what some owners have told me and they aint cheap either by the sounds of things but it also depends on how many times you meet unexpectedly with the deck!!There are loads of spares at our heli shop and cover the whole list not just some of the spares and they are really not badly priced for a 90.And once built she is unique and as pretty as you can get but most of all for a guy who types with one finger to have typed something as long as this really tells you something about this heli,you wont regret this
Kind regards all

If you are using the bellcrank arrangement (I recomend it especially with the low spec 610's and FBL) then fit the elevator servo before you join the frames. It screws to the inside of the LH frame side!
Also make sure that your retailer GIVES you the addendum bolt set and one way shaft!

WTF is a bevel box?
BLS 351's or 352's will be a better choice for FBL! No point having a fast servo if it doesn't have the torque to move it that fast!

ok maybe im missing something

DS610

Torque:

@ 4.8V: 133oz in (9.6kg cm)
@ 6.0V: 166oz in (12.0kg.cm)

Speed:

@ 4.8V: 0.10sec/60°
@ 6.0V: 0.08sec/60°

BLS451's
Specifications:
Speed: .14 Sec/60 Degrees @ 4.8V - .10 Sec/60 Degrees @ 6V
Torque: 111 oz-in @ 4.8V - 147 oz-in @ 6V
Weight: 2.0 oz (57g)
Length: 1.6" (40.6mm)
Width: 0.8" (20.3mm)
Height: 1.4" (35mm)

umm looks like the DS610's are faster and provide more torque. Im new to helis but is speed and torque not that inportant

mglenn310, skip the BeastX and Multigov and just get the full size blue V-bar. It has a much better governor than anything out there including the MultiGov. The V-Bar FBL system is the gold standard too.

For cyclic servos, the 610's will be OK. I would go for something a bit better on the Vision 90 like the MKS BLS950's for cyclic and MKS BLS980 for tail. They cost about the same but are brushless and titanium geared. You can buy them with the Turnigy brand label from Hobbyking at the link below. They are the same servo and should prove to be much better though the Align/Savox sevos, which are hit or miss.
