Introducing the Armattan Tadpole 3 inch Main Plate conversion kit. Featuring a 3mm main plate designed for a 20x20 flight controller with 9mm motor mount pattern for 6s 1404 3700kv motors (crazy fast and agile). The LIPO plate sits taller with the use of 2-20mm standoffs on the back and is also longer to hold 650mAh batteries. You can also add 1.5mm standoffs in front to increase the height with the existing camera bracket or use the new HD one.

DronerFPV designed with Armattan Productions to replace the existing Armattan Tadpole 3 inch 2mm 16x16 FC main plate and feel more like a 5-inch freestyle frame with more agility, zippiness and flight time.

The added stability, motor and battery size make it perfect for carrying the extra weight of a Insta360 GO, Insta360 GO2, BetaFPV SMO4K, or Naked GoPro to capture your freestyle footage in HD.

Thanks. I use the TBS UNIFY PRO 5G8 HV 500-800mW and never lose VTX signal. I designed the TPU parts and will put on Thingieverse and include a link in the next week or so.

Great looking Tadpole! I love my 2.5 but think its time to build a 3 inch. What VTX do you have mounted under the top plate? Also are those tpu parts shared any where?

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
