|Aton Quadcopter 3000mAh 3S LiPo Fixed Mount by Traxxas
* Currently In Stock
Traxxas Aton Quadcopter 3000mAh 3S LiPo Fixed Mount, Battery and Charger
This is the Traxxas Aton RTF Quadcopter w/3000mAh 3S LiPo Fixed Mount (TRA7908)
The new Traxxas Aton brings a new all-in-one concept in the world of multi-rotors by having a sporty design and offering the features of an aerial platform. The Aton quadcopter is the second model of the Traxxas manufacturer which is mainly specialized in RC cars.
The “Plus” edition of the Aton quadcopter comes additionally with a 2-axis brushless gimbal which is a must have for aerial filming. In order to compensate the extra weight of the gimbal and camera the Traxxas Aton Plus is powered with a higher capacity battery than the “Basic” version. The 5000 mAh battery allows to the fully equipped Aton Plus about *20-25 minutes of flight autonomy. The price difference between the “Basic” and “Plus” edition is about $105.
*Results may vary. Flight times are affected by many variables such as wind, payload, and temperature.
On the rear part of the aircraft there is a nice status bar with 4 bright LEDs. It was a great idea to use pictograms instead of using simple LEDs.
Aton is your personal video assistant that captures stunning aerial footage in a way that is easy and fun, without the need for any specialized skill or experience. Aton is sporty and smart, practically flying itself with auto take off and simple, intuitive directional control. You simply direct Aton towards your subject and Aton becomes the steady hand in the sky that captures the moment from exciting new vantage points. Press a button, and Aton quickly returns to home and lands automatically.
