Maiden went awsome without issue and all I can say is
WOW
everyone was right about how amazing the Avant flys.

First flight was a 4 minute shakedown cruise. Just some Piros, pitch pumps, forward, and backward flight.

Second flight I was going to take it easy too but my brain wouldn't let me. Holy smokes the cyclic in Active mode is like the simulator. It handles like my 550 (which is maxxed out for Cyclic) but much bigger. I am going to have to find the sweet spot for head speed though. I was doing Tic-Tocs in Idle 2 (95%) and climbing straight up both Elevator and Aileron. I went back to Idle 1 which is 80% and that was too low. I'll try 90% next time. That is with a 700MX 510 motor and the stock pinion and Main Gear. I didn't have my head speed tachometer so I'm not sure what the head speed was.

Just Amazing. You guys can all say "I Told You So"

One last thing, The first flight was done with the Voltz and it flew well but I didn't push it except for pitch pumps. The second flight was on the Gens Ace batteries. A Very noticeable difference in power. Pretty much as I expected since I see the same thing on my 550.
