    Looks like Aton is pretty tough.

    That bites. Does look like it can take a crash. Sucks watching you folks able to enjoy flying while mine sits in the box because its 2 degrees out for the high.

    You're one up on me bud!
    All I can do is live vicariously through you guys. My forcast looks like rain all week, so if mine shows up... well I can look at it.

    Did you have to do this after the crash? Taken from manual

    The accelerometer or flight compass needs to be reset. Go to
    Traxxas.com for additional information and instructions

    Thought it felt pretty solid but this definitely confirms my suspension!

    It CONFIRMS how tuff this quad is... My DJI and any of my larger quads would be destroyed if they hit the ground like that. Not too mention I don't believe any of them are this fast! In expert mode you can really toss this thing around

    I was shocked yours didn't explode in pieces on impact. Your video helps show why he Aton is the right copter to get. Am so tempted to go fly in the cold but don't want to wreck my new toy. Spring cannot come fast enough. This hobby will definitely cut in to my range time. May have to incorporate flying and shooting at the range if they will let me. Send it down range to check out distant targets.

    Aton is a tank. I've piled mine in plenty of times. With the exceptions of a few blades the rest of the damage is really just cosmetic. If you do manage to break something else all the parts are inexpensive and easily swapped.
    Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.
