Armattan CF Mini Tricopter Build

After printing out my own Mini-H Quad I splurged and purchased a Armattan CF Mini Tricopter / QuadcopterMini.

It just arrived in the mail and its Gorgeous. Probably take a couple of days to assemble but its going to be awesome when its done.

Wished I had waited a week longer as they now have a nice V-Tail upgrade.

Next build



Got started on the build this afternoon went much faster than I thought it would.

Pictures of the completed assemblies below.

Took awhile longer but the builds finished and I flew my first FPV flight last night
still needs to be tuned and find out what's causing the jello in my video but I like the way it flies.
