Default Compass Atom 500 FBL Flight Video

Yes, it's more, boring, old guy stuff:

Atom 500 on its sixth flight since the conversion to FBL.

Incredibly stable and easy to fly. Very quick and positive. Completely locked in/connected feeling in flight and very, very smooth!

Cullen's mod on the KBDD Trex 500 Dampers, KBDD Tail Blades, Mini Blue V-Bar, WR Hercules ESC, Futaba 9650's on cyclic, JR 8900G on rudder.

I love it!

Thank you to Frank S. for taking the video (again)!

I noticed on the HF site that you are associated with Compass & KBDD. Will this be used in any of their ads?

I doubt it will be used in any adds.

I don't fly well enough for that.

They have some really great flyers (Caleb, Dave Ketelhut, Tony Whiteside, Cortez Jenkins) to do the demos, contests, adds, etc.

They all fly hard 3D in very expert fashion. I fly smooth stuff because that was what I learned back in the 1970's.

I just posted this to show that the machines can fly smoothly as well as performing really hard 3D.

I guess it is a good way to get some free advertise here, as I see you have posted videos of some of their other videos here.

Maybe every manufacturer could have their reps post similar videos.

But then, maybe RCU would not get any manufacturers to purchase as many ads on the site.
