Nice heli, but absolute horrible judgment call when you guys decided to fly in a park with all those people in the background.

Gentlemen, that was totally irresponsible. Do yourself a favor and pull this video off and record another in a people safe zone.

If you are going to have total disregard for the AMA safety code, don’t record the flight and post it for the whole world to see.
Next time think guys! Please.

Notice how the 550 in Monkeys vid was shown off with prodominantly side in movements. That really shows off the speed and asthetics of the heli. Tail and nose in movements like the bulk of Pauls flight really don't show the speed and agility as much, thus the comments about it looking slow. Redo the vid in a better location, do away with the first 30 seconds of the heli sitting on the table, and fly the heli so that we can see what it can do a little better and you may have an argument for being the baddest 550. Right now...not so much

High Voltage just works better

I know Paul.

He is a good guy and a very good flyer.

The angle at which the video was shot did not do justice to his flying ability, or to the machine.

Nice seeing the Atom 500 stretch gettin' some love. But yeah, the park might not be the best place for this machine.

I have a Compass Atom 500 FBL and a Compass 3D Plus. I'll have a 6HV by the spring ... and the 7HV when it's finally released.... I love Compass Model!!

just for the record, the ATOM 5.5 uses 510mm blades not 550mm.Not a huge difference,but its not a true 30 size.What blades does the rex 550 use?

I love my stock atom,and i may get an Atom 5.5 once my 6HV is in the air

also the only thing changed from an atom to an Atom 5.5 is the boom,belt,tail servo pushrod, and blades.The stock motor and esc are still used.What was upgraded on that rex to get that performance?

515mm to be precise. The chord width is quite substantial as well in comparison...
