I talked to Troy last weekend.
Him and his brother still own Fantom.
They are no longer messing with the nitro motors and a lot of the electric items are being out-sorced as I understood it.

I have also talked to Fantom a week ago. They are still in operation and selling motors, Batteries which are going to be private labled for them. They have also purchased a Company that makes parachute flyers. I am not sure this is exactly the correct name for them but I will list the link below. Hope this helps.

hey all:just to clear something up.when you say fantom motors and batteries are going to be private labeled what does that mean?if the motors are checkpoint style then checkpoint makes them and if they are v2 style then orion will make them and so on?if this is the case then will fantom be doing any of the manufacturing and or quality controll before their products get shipped?thanks for the help

The Fantom Checkpoint based mods so far look very good. We've had them in the UK for a few months now. They use the plastic endbell - i understand it's the one that was done for the CP 19. They have a wind retaining ring over the comm tabs.
