This is a running and flying quad but I already have a bunch of changes planned so I'm posting this itteration and will rebuild and report.

Fit and finish is great, as I've come to expect from Armattan.

Those sunk nuts require some controlled use of force. Don't be afraid to whack them, but don't go total hamfist.

The VTX and wiring harness to the 4 in 1 worked out nicely, with ample room behind the stack. The VAS ion and Eagle Pro 2 are putting out crystal clear video. I usually don't run audio but decided to for this long ranger and because the Eagle Pro 2 has an onboard mic, so it was only a matter of one extra wire. Nice! I'm not a huge proponent of unnecessary heat shrink, insulustion etc, but couldn't help hiding the lead from the camera.

Bonus spot the cat pic.

nice build! the wiring harness, I noticed your xrotor 4in1 is turned 180. Does the pic of the wiring harnness depict that motor sequence?

The FC is mapped directly to the 4 in , meaning signal 1 is mapped to motor one, I woulndt necissarily use my colors as a guide, as the colors on specifc harnesses often are different. It is turned 180, so the battery pig tail can sneak up through the front, cleaner for top mounting. the motors do have to be swapped in your FC software, RF, Betaflight, etc, which is pretty simple

How do you like that frame? Is it the 6'' arms?

acromode   Feb 18, 2018 

It is a 6" arm. I like the frame quite a lot. A very nice evolution on the chameleon. Finish is top notch.

Why 1600kv motors? You running 6s low kv build or 6in?

acromode   Feb 12, 2018 

Yea going to 6s with 6" props. Gonna make gobs of thrust. I will report when that's done.

wiytboi   Feb 12, 2018 

Yeah I have a 6in 6s.. holy damn. Using 2207 2300kv dys storm motors. So much speed. Ridiculous fast.

How do you get the direct connect working on the raceflight and hobbywing esc?

acromode   Feb 09, 2018 

You can connect the jst connectors just map out which colors correspond and solder them together. That's what the pic of the just the 8 pin connectors are.

Nice rolling board ;-) i use to use a frisbee back in my college days

acromode   Feb 08, 2018 

LOL, Massachusetts is a terrific state. i have a few trays and they make great building platforms to keep builds separated and movable

Are those motor wires too short?

acromode   Jan 25, 2018 

Nope, I ended up trimming maybe 3".

acromode   Jan 25, 2018 

I added a pic from before I trimmed them.

acromode   Jan 25, 2018 

Never mind I don't have one. Lol. They were plenty long.

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..

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..
