It's taking so long to Rage resurrect the Compass helicopters, that this makes me think that the day it finally happens, we all will be flying antigravity aircraft and wings (either fixed or rotary) will be a thing long forgotten.

Cheers!

I think the writing is on the wall with regards to Compass / Rage RC... The best that could happen is for the Chronos RSR to be resurrected by another company (perhaps Lynx) just like Protos was resurrected by XLPower.

I am moving on myself and just ordered an Oxy 5 HF from my local dealer (Rotorquest) to build this winter.

The Compass helicopters were my all-time favorites. I think there are only three that I don't have (the electric Knight, the 550-U, and one other which eludes me right now).

I am still hopeful that we will see a Chronos RSR from Rage. I doubt that we will ever see the eXo again, or the Atom (both of which are excellent machines).

If I was independently wealthy, I would by the rights to these machines and produce them myself.

Sadly, there is no danger of that ever happening...

The EXO was a thing of beauty and flew very, very well. Shame to see it disappear. I miss mine.

I wish we would see some updates or activity. I remember when luca is working on the oxys he keeps everyone updated on his facebook page.

I've got a pre-order of the RSR upgrade that's not been shipped. MTTEC states it's delayed because of COVID. It has been ordered for a long time.

Sold my Nitro K3D but converted my 6S Knight to 12s - same spec as my 6HV's . Still one of the better flyers .

Hello dear brothers! I have a flying Compass Atom 500, but it has a lot of alterations, I am always looking for alternative spare parts that pass for my Atom 500. This is the best helicopter of its time, it is very lightweight, reliable and simple. I want to start restoring some parts, later I will post a photo of what I have left.

jekaex3m,

I think that is GREAT!

I just got this one flying a couple of months ago. I have found a stretch kit, so I will be stretching it soon!
