    I agree on the whole with all of the above. The Aton is/was a good drone that does a bit of everything. I originally bought it about a year ago because I wasn't sure what part of "droning"...

    Yes, I unplugged the bluetooth board. I think you can run it with the bluetooth board if you ONLY connect up rx to the osd. At least that worked when I wired in 3dr telemetry radio link instead of...

    The red JST connector underneath the Aton delivers 12v/3s. I power my vtx from it as well as using it as vbat for my osd.

    The last two in the video looked ok. You misunderstood point 3. You keep the pitch fixed and decrease throttle. But if you are not confident with the throttle, you can practice by keeping the...

    By the looks of things, it tumbled because you cut too much throttle. Try just cutting it to 1/2 to start with, or you could try doing it all with full throttle, but instead of reducing the throttle,...

    Maybe a combination of lose of GPS (=> no geofence) and WIFI interference (=> no control) together. I would hope if you just lost GPS, you would still have control.

    I would start at around 200-300ft so you have got plenty of room above the ground and below 400ft limit. I think the chances of crashing are quite slim because you can just pull back more to complete...

    Fly level at full throttle, pull back on the pitch stick, just a bit, not much, and hold it. Reduce the throttle near the top, and punch it as you come out. It is easy to bail at any...

    I found I can upload and download mission plans to the Aton, but I haven't found anyway to trigger them to run. It's probably going to require a firmware mod. The other day, Tower/droidplanner came...

    The osd draws about 100mA, and about the same again for the 3dr radio. So maybe a couple of mins at most, not really noticeable. The biggest impact on flight times is still the hd cam (weight).

    I don't believe it's available as a part to buy. You probably need to ring/email traxxas and ask. Please let us know the outcome (in a new thread).

    Headless mode means forward on the control always makes Aton move away from you regardless of its orientation. Similarly backwards always comes towards you.
