Default Avant RC previews the Aurora Ultimate

http://www.CarbonXtreme.com/

Capitalizing on the wildly successful FX and EFX, Avant RC introduces its most advanced model helicopter to date.

This is a 100% Avant purebred complete kit.

The model uses the tried-and-true and very succesful CCPM system and the Avant Programmable Head and combines them with the rest of a design that takes the state of the art in high performance helicopters to a new level.






A very slim design and low front profile give the Aurora a very low drag coefficient that allows it to keep the momentum in the most demanding maneuvers.







An incredibly low parts count makes this an extremely easy to repair and maintain heli.







A very streamlined figure makes it easy for axis alignment and orientation axis into the most precise maneuvers.






An innovative slanted battery plate with easily replaceable straps makes it easy to exchange power packs finally allowing for a practical way to use lighter packs and save on flying weight






At the same time the battery plate slides and adjusts upwards and downwards allowing for CG adjustments without the need to add additional weights.






The Aurora uses the most rugged torque tube system. The generously sized gears are designed to take about 9 times the actual forces while in flight so that the pilot can use and abuse the system without the usual concerns of the typical torque tube systems.
A 4.9 tail to main ratio makes it a very nice system with all the tail authority you'll ever need.






The Aurora Ultimate uses a carbon tailboom for extra stiffness and lightweight.






The Aurora tailcase gear system is a work of art on itself. Designed to be lightweight and rugged it holds a very innovative gear system.



To service the gears the pilot simply loosens the tailhub setscrew and takes the three gearcase cap screws off and the whole systems comes out to the right for a very easy servicing access. Also notice that instead of using a fixed length brass sleeve the Aurora tailcase uses an ingenious adjustable bearing sleeve that allows you to keep the tail output shaft without any lateral play whatsoever and prevents the brass sleeves from eating into the gear's delrin.






Besides being extremely light the tailcase is also very stylish. Notice how the tail output shaft is a 6mm diameter and the tailhub is a 5mm diameter shaft for rugged resistance for those not-so-perfect autos. The tailhub threads are made inside to minimize the creation of fatigue cracks. It also makes taking the tailblade grip off a single operation with a wrench from the outside of the tailgrips. Two widely spaced radial bearings and one trust bearing make it a very precise tailgrip system.






One of the nicest features of the Aurora is the main gear system. It uses machined delrin gears with a special high load tooth profile that minimizes the noise and rattling. The generously sized main gear is larger than most of the standard gears lowering the point of contact forces applied to the gear's teeth.







One of the most advanced features is the use of a centered sprague. In the Aurora instead of a problem-plagued one-way bearing system the Aurora sports a combination of sprague clutch and a radial bearing in one unit. In this system the sprague runs on a hardened inner race preventing the common "grooving" of other systems. This is also kept in precise alignment by a built-in radial bearing.






All the parts are precisely machined by completely automated systems guaranteeing part to part consistency.





With this innovative design a very compact and light main gear hub and constant drive system is achieved




The pinion and clutch are precisely machined to the highest engineering standards





Precise simplicity and low parts count is always a welcomed feature





Many nice features are incorporated in the design. Ample room for today's large engine heads is taken into account as well as clearance so that the head can be extracted or swapped without having to take the engine off the heli.





Another nice feature is the addition of wear pads a the bottom of the struts extending the life of the struts when landing on hard or abrasive surfaces like concrete or asphalt






The Aurora tank is designed to optimize the location of the fuel pickup minimizing the distance from the pickup point to any point inside the tank. A generous 22 ounce capacity allows for longer flights and more time for practicing.






Ultra-compact and lightweight design is a key directive in the design of the Aurora






A slim profile lightweight epoxy-glass canopy comes with a flexible base that minimizes cracks from flexing and vibration

Regards,

The Avant Team.

Hey Elvis,

Hotwings was over for dinner the other night and he said you put on quite a show. AWESOME, this new Aurora looks impresive.

We also take this opportunity to announce that both Alan Szabo Jr. and Danny Szabo have joined the Avant Team with Alan Szabo Sr. as the new team manager.

Is the above info correct? Will they be making statement soon? Will they be working with Align and Aurora or have they left Align for the Aurora?

Align has no plans for a nitro machine and vise versa so there is no conflict. Alan Szabo Sr. does make posts on here also... but, as you can imagine, he is quit busy right now. He has told me he will be sure and let us know more about kit and team information when it becomes available on the web.

Clyde,

I had a great time in Boca doing the Demo. I wish that I was flying the Aurora, but it was the AVANT EFX.

Man, does the Aurora look sweet, like a work of art. Looking forward to have some fun with an all up CX heli. The wait is over and man its gonna be a sweet ride :mrgreen:

I guess you will be changing your sig line as soon as they become available.

Looks like a great ship, cant't wait to see you rocking the house with one.

I just couldn't get excited about the Avant when it was a conversion but this Aurora looks promising. Might even be something that drags me from MA.

Can we see any pictures of the real thing?
Not renders or artwork - photos up close and personal

I'm glad theres been a slight delay in releasing it though - it gives me more time to save up...!!!

Can't wait to own this heli!
Cheers,
Rob

hello guys
that's true its a nice machine the only thing is the price in europe 1400 whereas its only 1000$ in the US so its twice the price for us in europe
the worst part is that we can't order it in the USA through the internet cause augusto (avant boss) restrict this possibility to the dealers
thats a ripp off
maybe we should just not buy this heli

MD3DNT: dont know where you got the price 1400 euros, and since you are bitching about it so passionately (here and elsewhere). Although I somewhat agree with your primary argument, consumer freedom, please get the facts straight.
rcmarket has preorders it listed at 1195 euros, revolution models at 799 . And you have no way of knowing what the price will be at other retailers.
