Default I finally have an E-Aurora

this is one sweet bird that I have been eyeing on since I started helis in early-2000.

It will be fully decked out with futaba HV servos and scorpion ultimate with prob a CC120hv.

I am very fearful of crashing this baby given the glacial pace in which aurora spares may be purchased from a certain site.

I hv a few MSH brain units which I would like to use on this FLYBARRED bird...in view of the aforesaid, may I consult experts here IF this is plausible or I should NOT even consider it at all.

Thanks to all in advance for advice rendered...most appreciated.

CarbonXtreme is still shipping some parts. Some dealers still have some parts.

good question on WHY NOW...

in gist, when I first started in this wondrous hobby, I didn't think there were THAT many 700 birds...back then, I only knew trex, raptor, hirobo, JR, kasama, MA and Avant...pretty sure there are many companies offering huge birds but the pricing was just so out of reach.

More than a decade later and hv the pleasure of having owned various large birds, I am still extremely attracted to the e-aurora...aerodynamic & tall...and just so happy that it works with a fbl gyro

so I guess the joy of ownership will supersede the pleasure of flying...
