Hi all,

I am currently on holiday. I will be returning home on February 4th, at which time Armattan Quads will resume its normal operations. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For more information, you can visit the News & Info section on my website. http://www.armattanquads.com/news-&-...uary-4th,-2014

If you need technical advice, I recommend you post your questions in the Armattan thread where many Armattan pilots will most likely help you out. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...43444&page=336

Thanks for your understanding, and don't hesitate to drop me a line after I get back. I will then enable private messages again.

All the best,
Armattan Quads

It's fast, it's agile, it's responsive and it almost seems unbreakable so far. Or maybe I've just been REALLY lucky.

I actually like this little aircraft so much that I decided to put together a small review of it. I am surprised to see so few people discussing this model. Perhaps my small review and my commentaries will bring more attention this model, which I believe is a better model than the Ladybird and all of its copied versions.
