Armattan Bobcat 4" build running INav with full size air unit. Tight build which resulted in the esc having to be mounted in reverse and flipping motor channel wires around. Not sure if I’m 100% satisfied with receiver location, placed it underneath to be able to get the r9 antenna mounted vertically. Haven’t tested yet but flew well on my previous frame, homemade 3s 18650 3000mah batteries will deliver ~20minutes of slow flying, might try to build a 3s 21700 (i do have 4 s 18650 and 21700 I may try as well) Still need to clean up some zip ties on antennas but it is ready for first flights when weather warms up in next day or two. Will potentially upgrade the motors to fpvcycle 2203 2800 kv motors in the future to see if that lower kv will increase flight times.

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..
