You've got to be kidding! This heli was announced when I was still flying regularly a few years back! The Aurora was a massive joke due to delay after delay, then they promised no repeat of that farce with the Mostro.
They make magnificent helis, no doubt, but is it anything new now?  A three year old design surely doesn't cut it these days.

You guys just don't get it.
August is a brilliant marketer, you guys keep talking about it and keeping post up on the boards about his Brand!

Hahaha, that's just like saying the Sony pictures hacking dilemma was all a clever marketing stunt to make people want to watch "the Interview"

Valid point all the same.

Finally got to fly mine at wagga m.a.c.  yesterday .. longest build ever ! - 3 months but it was worth it ..... Mr smooth . Tracks like its on rails in FFF. precise & has a real presence in the air. Didnt get to put any speed runs down - only did a couple of shake down / screw checking flights but it wants to go
