Armattan Beaver HDZero Xmas Edition

So after bulding my first Armattan Beaver quad and seeing how amazing it was, I decided to upgrade my Marmotte to the Beaver frame. Upgraded the T-Motor F7 FC to the F7HD with the DJI connector and created a cable to connect this connector to the HDZero Freestyle, using the Keszoox kit. I swapped the Uart 5 TX and RX in order to get SBus to work and upgraded the receiver from TBS to ExpressLRS. I decided to keep the 2200 T-Motor F80 motors since they are rated up to 5S and so can probably handle 6S. I guess we'll see. Looking forward to taking this out for a spin some time this week.

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