An interview released by Luca to clear the air on his relationship with Rage RC. In summary, Lynx does not own Rage RC. Lynx will be making the parts and possibly assemble kits, warehouse and distribute heils designed by Rage RC. Plus a bit of news on an Oxy5.

Watch at YouTube

Lynx
Oxy
Compass
Rage

I don't buy a lot of these products so forgive me for not being very knowledgeable. Still, even after this interview, I'm confused. 4 "companies" to talk about. Who is Rage?

It does get confusing! If I have it correct, Compass is no more, they are out of business. Rage RC now has the rights to the designs. Rage needed to get the parts made, that's when Luca stepped in. Lynx and Oxy are both owned by Luca.

It is interesting to watch, we all talk about the heli companies that are gone while Oxy, SAB and Align continue to release new models.

more RC Heli brand/manufactures will continue to go down...

we will be left with maybe 4 in the future... Align and Blade will be two of them...

maybe a hand full of "boutique" models... but will be expensive and built to order.

in 10 years.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Lynx started as a company that made High Quality after market parts just like KDE & Kasama.

Lynx is stepping in to fill a gap left when Compass flamed out to produce Compass parts under a new company called: Rage
- Oxy is under Lynx and stays that way

Compass parts will be produced once details are ironed out... courtesy of Lynx!!!!

Yesss! Thanks for sharing this dialogue!
