6HV or Atom 500?
Hi,

I've had most of the Compass models so far since the very first Knight that landed in the UK, sometimes more than one at a time!

I sold my 3D+ last summer and only have a 500 scale heli now.

I am looking at buying another Compass because I can't not have one!!

So do I go for an 500 Atom (maybe stretched) or just go the full 6HV (old type as I hate the new canopy)

500 cheaper to crash,
6HV bigger and better.

????

Any thoughts?

NEW 550 !!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't know they did one !!

550 is exactly what I wanted all along
Compass hit the spot again

Please can you tell me where it is to be found on Weston UK's site.

Weston UK have just told me there is no such thing as a Compass 550, only the Atom 500 with a stretch kit !!

I'm told I would have to buy the Atom plus a £90 kit

They are meant to be getting back to me today with a combo price for the above?

P.S,
After a call just now from me, they are now looking into the 550 kit !

Nothing official has been announced regarding a 550, but that doesn't mean it's not being worked on. I have no inside information to share and wouldn't share it even if I did have it. I would consider the likelihood of a 550 to be pretty high to give Compass a heli to complement the 7HV.Alan

I love Compass heli's, but I think I'm going to spend my money elsewhere this time as Info on this 550 model is not forth coming. I've rung two Compass dealers today in the UK and nether knew anything about it.

Not knowing means it could be some way off or the dealers are just trying to get me to buy the old stock to make way for the new.

I've got both the old school 6hv as well as an atom 500 and love them both. It's a toss as to which to recommend, this choice is better suited to budget......I'd get both

It's only a toy...FLY IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!!!

The 550 is being tested by one or two of the Team Mangers in the U.S. I have no idea as to time frame, etc.

As soon as there is any new information I am sure it will be all over the forums, sir.

It's something how both the 6HVU and the 550 are the same price. Think you'd get some kind of break even if it's 50 bucks on buying the smaller bird.
