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.

The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..
