Since my first build ended up being too fast to freestyle, and too small to carry an HD camera, I decided to build something else. I started off piecing things together I knew I wanted to use, but do to various components being sold out here and there, I was going to end up ordering from multiple shops. So I ordered the Armattan Marmotte kit from Armattan directly (~$310), and actually saved some cash. The low deck caused me some problems with how I wanted to carry the batteries, right now it's setup for the power leads to go up/over the battery, their pigtail was too short for the Tattus. The way I did the wires, I can easily have them go along the side of the battery instead, should I change my mind.
I've only been able to fly down my street so far, it got real cold, and been snowing since. Waiting for a warm and dry enough day to head out to a park.

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..
