GForce Upgrade – Aurora Metal Tail Grips

April 7th, 2010 3 comments

GForce LogoThe other weekend I had one of the plastic tail grips fail on my Avant Aurora, which is essentially the first flight failure I’ve had with the Aurora. The arm on the tail blade grip which holds the ball fatigued, cracked and the ball pulled out. Fortunately I was able to get the heli down with minimal damage.

Needless to say I’m now looking for a metal tail grip solution to replace the stock Avant plastic ones (which perform fine… they are just not durable enough IMHO). After digging around it turns out GForce maybe able to offer a solution if there is enough demand for an initial run of replacement grips. Hence a show of hand is required to get and indication of how many people would be seriously interested in a set. (yes I know Avant have some in the pipe line, but there is no indication of when that will be)

If you are interested in a set of quality metal tail grips specifically designed for the Avant Aurora please contact Garf at GForce to express your interest, his email can be found in the following thread on RunRyder: http://rc.runryder.com/helicopter/t579394p1/

Daniel JetschinIt gives me great pleasure to be able to announce that Daniel Jetschin will be coming over for the 3D Championship weekend to fly Avant Aurora helicopter demonstrations.

We’re thrilled that a big name manufacturer has jumped on board to support our event in this way and we would like to extend our thanks to Avant RC and Midland Helicopters for helping to make this happen.
