This is the new Armattan Bumper frame which is a BLAST to fly in tight places! It has the mobility of a tinywhoop but with much more power on 2S or 3S. The foam surround keeps everything in your house safe and the thing literally bounces off of obstacles and keeps flying.

I built one of these using a piko blx and dys 1102 motors and furious 1935 props on 2s. Nice and docile in the house with no damage to the walls or kids. I dremelled a hole for the camera in the foam and the vtx ended up melting down after using it twice. Not sure if it's due to a soldering error or if the vtx against the foam caused it to overheat. 3s seems to be too much for the motors as they get crazy hot.

I've been waiting to see one of these! How does it perform?

Well on a 450mah 3S with the RX3020 props cut down it does ok, I get about 2:30 flight though so I'm still searching for a more efficient propeller. Otherwise it is an absolute BLAST to fly. As fun as a tiny whoop but a lot more control and power obviously. It is pretty noisy though with the ducts but again I think the right prop will help that. I'm trying to find a ducted fan prop that will fit it. The blade inductrix 200 prop is the only candidate thus far so I might try those.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. 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..
