Hallo all, I would like to share my atom picture and new esc.

Here it is

My setup:
Cyclic servo inolab HG260MG
Gyro & Rudder Logictech 6100
ESC Hobbywing Platinum 80 Amp
Pinion 10th
Pith +/- 13
Cyclic 6.5
Stock motor

ESC setup for platinum
For timing set to 22.5 since atom stock motor have 8 pole motor thats mean 180/8 = 22.5 (on Pentium ESC I use high timing)
Governor high

Different between Platinum and Pentium ESC is
- soft start is more smooth
- Governor mode run nicely
- PWM frequency can select 12KHz or 24 KHz (24KHz make esc more hotter)
- BEC output can be select 5.25v or 6V
- Timing is more advance (I suggest you must know how much pole is your motor)

If you turn on governor mode make sure your throtle cure is flat in idle, mine use flat 85 for idle 1 and flat 90 for idle 2, governor feature is very nice make headspeed more stable and more floating.

Hope this information can be use by others

For atom I use Rhino lipo 2350 mah 25c 3s, I se 2 batteries in series. Flight time can reach 4 minutes max and those battery will get hot. Now I limit flight time for just 3,5 minutes. ESC got slightly warm not hot at all. The big different is the power of this heli is awesome. I like atom with 10 pinion . Have a nice try....

Nest time will try 2600mah 30c 6s battery

That's cool. I'm using 2500 40C SMCs. I think I will try the 10 tooth. I hope it dosen't bring my times down too much though. I'm only flying around 4 mintes right now but could probably push it a little more as I usually don't put back 80%. I would like some more power.
