Traxxas Aton Quadcopter Drone
Here it is finally. A reasonable priced drone that is of first rate quality and actually works as advertised. It's amazing what this drone can do and i'm really impressed with Traxxas quality. Very well made product. The advanced GPS and Come Home feature alone is worth the price. It flys as fast as you can handle. If you are a hobbyist you have found your drone.

Traxxas Aton Quadcopter Drone
I own 5 quadcopters and this one is by far the one that I like the most. Want to go and take pictures, it works well, want to fly medium fast and do flips, it does it, want to go really fast, it does that too. App for smartphones allows customization of many settings to meet your needs. I crashed mine the first month that I had it when I went into the highest speed mode and drove it into the ground at high speed. The crash broke an arm off, destroyed a motor and caused the main board to break. The drone was sent back to Traxxas and while I paid for a new arm and motor, Traxxas replaced the board which is pretty expensive for free since I had not had it very long. I like this so well, that I own 2 and bought a third for my son in law as a present.

Traxxas Aton Quadcopter Drone
I've had my Aton for a few weeks now and I must say I am having a blast with. I just graduated from learning on a Dromida Vista and this is quite a step up for me. Because of its power it is much easier to fly in any wind, but it is also so fast that you can get into trouble quick. Thank goodness for the return to home feature using GPS and the air brake. I hit straight into a tree last weekend, bent two props, replaced them and was back flying in 10 minutes, no problems. Bounced it off the ground a couple of times, landed pretty hard on the driveway, clipped a couple of limbs and recovered, thing is still going strong! I replaced all the props today, not that I had to, but it cost me $10, about half the cost of replacing 1/10th car tires after a couple of qualifiers.(Okay, one qualifier.)I am slowly getting better, LOL, and I think the Aton will keep going and giving me tons of fun and excitement.

Traxxas Aton Quadcopter Drone
I love the Traxxas Aton so much that I bought a second one from amain hobbies a week ago. It doesn't shine as a camera platform, but when it comes to great sports flying, the Aton is hard to beat. The downside of ownership is the lack of lipo batteries specific to the Aton. Amain is advertising an inventory stocking of the TRA2832x 5000mAh battery on July 23rd and I'm hoping that it will fit into the battery tray without requiring modifications.....we'll see!?
