Pictures are starting to surface of the new ElyQ/Avant Vision 50.  This seems to be a joint venture between AvantRC (makers of the Avant Aurora) and ElyQ of Italy.  They have recruited team pilots Danny Szabo and Marcus Kim.

 

The project was born with the precise idea to realize an entry level helicopter.        

  • The first project aimed to produce a machine with some key lines:
  • Easy to assemble
  • Easy to upkeep
  • Easily to find spare parts
  • Light
  • Fast and precise, much more than any other competition machine you can find on the market.

 

THINK DIFFERENT, MAKE DIFFERENT
We analyzed the different solutions offered on the market. So we realized that the technical solutions applied, even if trendy, had nothing to deal with the structural needs of a 3D helicopter.      

The first idea was to have a 2 sides structure. It was immediately rejected because it did not satisfy the minimum requests of cross-rigidity. 

In fact the helicopter needs this kind of rigidity, not a longitudinal one. This is much true in 3D flight.

Based on this Vision 50 Ultimate structure was born. Its superior frame creates a transversal structure.

The result is a fast and powerful machine.

Or pilots proved that it’s the fastest collective on the market. 

 

MAIN ROTOR HEAD
We thought to use a washout mixer, but thanks to measurements and computer simulations we found out that we faced transmission delays up to 60 ms. Moreover adding levers meant higher delay and imprecision. It was not acceptable for us. 
We choose a moving flybar and direct command of servos on cyclic with a 1:1 ratio.     

The result was higher than our expectation.

Once more our pilots stated that Vision 50 Ultimate is the fastest and most precise helicopter. 

 

OCCAM’S PRINCIPLE: THE EASIEST SOLUTION TENDS TO BE THE RIGHT ONE. 
Even in this case the solutions are very easy.
Kit assembling and maintenance is very simple and quick. The best for the 1st experience.     

 

COMPATIBILITY AND INTERCHANGEABLE
ElyQ is a new company in 3D sector. We realized that the market could like a sane competition on spare parts: good quality, always available and cheap. 
Even in this case we followed these guidelines and we based it on the most dispread model in the world.
Most of the components are available on the market. This gives the opportunity to our customers to test our quality.
This allows us to enter the competition with the market. We accept the challenge.    

 

WEIGHT
The Vision 50 is the lightest model in its class. This means the best power to weight ratio.    

 

VISION 50
Pilots and the team have been really surprised of the results. 
These are some of their exclamations:         

“Wow! The pitch is very fast…”
“…much better than….”
“… incredible speed…”
