The Hobbyking Atom is a modern, fun Mini Glider injected with a bit of good old fashioned low tech simplicity! For a start, it is 3 Channel and it's powered by a pre-fitted 180 brushed motor, but don't let that fool you, flown WOT, the Atom is a suprisingly good performer!
Despite being made from tough EPO foam, the Atom is as light and floaty as you want a parkfly glider to be, the high quality construction is more high tech than low tech, with a carbon spar in the wing and also down the length of the fuselage boom. The pre-fitted servo's are actually 7.5g types with plenty of power, giving the Atom the ability to fly with authority. Assembly is really fast, and the model features a bolt on wing, even the wing bolt tool is included. Removing the nice quality magnetic canopy reveals a surprisingly large battery area, the supplied 250mAh 2s Lithium-Ion pack fits right up in the nose meaning larger packs for longer flight times or FPV gear can be fitted without making the model nose heavy.
The Atom's ultra-low flying weight and wing loading mean that even indoor flight is possible with the right sized hall, adding another dimension to the mix of low tech/high tech that makes the Atom so appealing and so reasonably priced. Ideal for both experienced and in-experienced pilots, the Atom is huge amounts of fun, nice quality and just a little bit different, time to go retro!
