Armattan Tadpole 3"

this is my second Tadpole build. I decided to use 1404 motors beacuse running the 1303 motors on 3s felt under powered past 60 percent throttle. The 1404 motors are less effecient on 3s and have more punch than the 1303. The 1404 on 4s felt much faster than the 1303 on 4s, The 1303 felt "smoother" than the 1404 however on 4s and 3s. I would recomend the 1303 motors for a lighter build.

My remote randomly died on me while I was at least 150 feet in the air. the quad disarmed and fell directly onto concrete. The only part that broke was the flight controller.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
