Having wanted to build the Armadillo for awhile due to the sheer sleekness and size i finally jumped when Joshua Bardwell did a raving review on it. I knew immediately it would sell , and after placing my order in at armattanquads it sold out in a couple of hours. Already having flown cleanflight/betaflight boards (naze32), I wanted to see what the hype was with KISS, and so i bought all KISS components, except for PDB as the armadillo had one. I also went with the skizto edition of lumenier motors. Due to the size i went with the XSR rtx as i fly FrSky (Taranis), i also went with the unify pro Race, and furious fpv mini UFL antenna. The build was tight, though i managed to squeeze all components in. When running on 4S this thing is a BEAST. At near ground touches tapping the throttle sends the quad rocketing 50ft in the air instantly. The flying is smooth, and the response is impeccable. I LOVE IT! and as a nod to Iron man, I named it Mark 30 as that was the blue iron man suite.

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
