I was wondering if anyone knows or has weighed the stock motor in the atom. After I move to a flybarless Rave, I am going to use my gyro and RX for an Atom I am thinking of building. I was thinking of using a Kora motor because they are pretty light and nice. But was wondering if I would save any weight.

Thanks

Hey Thanks What the Heli --Are you sure about that? That seems a bit on the high end. The motor I want to use is like 150 grams. Seems that would be a Huge weight savings, but I can't see it being that heavy for this heli.

I weighed it last Dec and put the 10t pinion in only to quickly find out the 8t meets my needs and gives me plenty of flight time

Thanks. Can't get better than that. Great. Thanks a lot. How do you like the Atom? 8 t will prob meet the needs of this heli for me too.

No prob. I love the Atom, it's probably my favorite heli. I am just a sport flier and get 6min on the 8t 100% flat curve in idle up using maxamps 6s3000mah packs. The 10t was ballistic and way more than I needed. The 9t was fine too, I would have just lowered the % a little
