Default Any plans to replace the Odin?

Just wondering if Compass have any plans to replace or redesign the Odin? i.e. new 90 Nitro?

I don't think the Odin is really gone at this point.

I believe that if you really want one, you can have one ordered (I would check with Nankin).

I purchased mine used over a year ago, thinking it was discontinued, only to find out is was still in production at that time. As it turns out, the used one was superbly built, so I still came out in good shape.

I still love the Odin.

As soon as the 7HV heads become available, my Odin II will go FBL!

I wont buy and Odin.. I dont like the engine cooling setup (ESC/fan)...

If they were to change to a more conventional cooling system I might consider it..

The cooling fan design works extremely well.

It concerned me at first too, but I think it is actually more efficient that a conventional, engine driven fan. It certainly allows more power to be put to the rotor system.
