I believe it is capable of handling the equivalent of Virginia Class Submarine Nuclear PowerPlant.

The larger drive belt for 14s was one of the first delays.

The first pics didn't show that and I was concerned about it flopping around holding the battery latch. All my concerns have so far been answered. I love the simplicity. hurry up and make me a 600 nitro please lol.
Its actually very easy to remove mainshaft and main gear.

Check out this video showing how quiet the Mostro is at 2100 headspeed in a how drag free the spool down is for awesome auto rotations.

Are the "optional" electronics mount plates included in kits?

They are not included in the kits. They will be sold as a separate item.

Absolutely awesome Tom

How do the two heads differ in auto rotations ?

Big fan of the original rigidcore head so will probably go non dfc

Both the DFC and Follower Arm heads fly identical. They both have the RigidCore dampening which is the real heart of the Avant heads. The DFC is a properly designed one so it doesn't have any bad tendencies or oscillations at any speed.

Thanks Jason certainly studying the new heads there is not much between them save for the followers.

My 90n is without doubt an autoing goddess, just keeps going!

What's the nitro like to fly? Being more of a hobbyist the nitro would be my preferred choice for all round entertainment. Most electrics I have flown can't compete against nitro for autos.

Look forward to seeing one of your proper flight vids soon.

Cheers

Tom

I don't know about nitros but all those thick metal pulleys plus many heavy steel screws in the Mostro's drivetrain probably helps autos by acting like a flywheel. It would auto even better if you just changed the main aluminum pulley with a steel one...or make the main gear hub out of steel. This obviously adds weight so it's a delicate balance.
