My second Armattan Tadpole, but this time a special one a 3" with space grade carbon bottom plate. I topped it off with the new lite grip. it sticks so good that O won't even need a lipo strap.
It looks Stunning, so far I've just flew it with 2.5" props since that's the only thing I forgot.
On this build I used the Iflight Xing 1204, wanted a bit more punch and dame it has some punch.
Uaed a 4s tattu 450mah, and it goes smooth. gonna try a 2s18650 just for fun to see how long it stays in thr air.

I never have been a great fan of a plastic canopi so the Armattan Tadpole cought my eye straight away. the single carbon bottom part helped at well it makes a clean build as well. the weight for the frame it self is not that bad at all as well.

Still looking for a good vtx so I can get a better range out off it. For now I'm using the r-xsr receiver but soon it will be upgraded to the Crossfire nano.
what do you think off the Tadpole?!

I love my Tadpole. How are those motors?
Right now I'm running 1404 3700kv and it doesn't have quite the top end punch I really want. A little heavier than I was aiming for, too. It's a bit chonky with the 1404. It still rips though!

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..
