i got bored of wating on various promises of when it was coming out and ended up buying a t-rex 500CF. Compass have some serious work to do if they are to beat this great little machine

I don't think it will be all that short in the UK. The more Compass are supported the better the product range and support will be.

I am very happy with my 3D and can't wait to have a little brother for it.

Production pics?

If the Atom is actually close to being released, there would certainly be some pictures of it's current configuration. Judging by the comments of many pilots the 500 size is a very nice compromise in performance/cost ratio.

I, for one, would like to see what the final production version is looking like.

Atom Gear

Could someone be so kind as to list the gear that would be necessary to outfit one of these little guys?

Swash servos micros or minis? Battery configuration/capacity, ESC, and motor. Not yet done electric power. I am not looking for state of the art in the power department, I would trade longer flights for cutting edge performance. Is good performance possible with A123 batteries?

Expect about 5 minutes of flight time judging by the current crop of 500 size helis out there.

I was loving this until I got knocked back to reality with the 5 minute flight times. When are we going to be able to get these things up to 8-10 real minutes? Then I'll buy one, or two, or three...

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool
