Crushed Marmotte

As soon as the Marmotte came out I knew I wanted to do something custom with the cage. I don't like mono-plate designs, I wanted something for a micro camera, and I have had good luck in the past doing customizations with the original Chameleon hardware, so I took my Chameleon mod, mashed it up with the new stuff I've been trying in some other frames I've been working on, and spit this thing out in an afternoon. :D Man I love having a CNC!

I'm over the moon happy with how this thing came out. I've had these EFAW motors sitting around for a while and been meaning to save them for something special, so I figured this was it! Also got one of the new Aikon 55A ESCs, so this is a top notch build! Finally got a chance to take it out and put it through it's paces this week and I'm blown away! Probably one of the best quads I've built to date.

NOICE Ryan, and fyi to all armattan is now offering either choice of carbon types for purchase AND replaceable arms options :)

interesting, I hadnt seen the replaceable arm one. Do you have a link? I'm curious to see how they execute it.

Did you just cut down the existing Marmotte carbon if a big selling point of the frame was that it used space grade carbon?

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
