The Atom V3 DIY Kit (Unassembled) Includes:
This was my first build and there were a few problems that I encountered-
•Motor wires on the front arms are not quite long enough but I got them to work.
•There is very little room inside the canopy for the receiver (I used the FrSky XSR) so when it's tightened down it presses the bind button and goes into bind mode... but I made it work with a little ingenuity.
•The battery strap could be a touch longer to accommodate the 4s 860mah lipo. First day out I lost a new battery. Zip ties are your friend.
Now for the 5 stars this thing gets is straight from the insanity of flying at the speed of thought right into a tree, pick it up, straighten some props, and repeat. It's a far cry from the tiny whoop I learned on just a month ago and the 4s adrenaline rush will leave your hands shaking with a new addiction. I'm now considering buying another one for my back up quad instead of moving up to a 4 or 5 inch. Plus this thing only weighs 247grams with a 860mah lipo so there's no need to register with the faa. Overall I have been very pleased with the performance and especially the durability. I will buy another.
Oh and don't forget to order extra props. SE Stanton on 27th Feb 2017
I've owned several Atoms. The V1 was a nightmare to build! The V2 introduced the power block and the new nylon canopy...The new V3 incorporates the newest 4s power block, which houses most of the major upgraded components. Because of its small size and mass, Atoms are virtually indestructible. You won't be disappointed with this micro. NOTE: This is NOT an indoor quad, and I wouldn't recommend this for beginners! It is angry on 4s 800maH lipo, and it's ready to race! ...You've done it again RotorX. I look forward to the 5 and 6" Atoms, coming soon!!! RotorX makes a HD camera for this called the RXHD which should be out shortly! Bill Decker on 18th Feb 2017
