I have amended all the orders to reflect the choices of center plates finish. You can look at page 1 of this thread to view your order.

As for landing skids, I am submitting a design to the CNC factory this week and I will include them with the orders, except adrenahelin's order because that one is shipping this week, but I will be sending him a set for free at a later date. The skids will also be available for cheap for those who already own an Armattan quad.

The kids are designed the same way as the one posted by TEKK but they will have refined curves and perforations to cut down weight. They bend easily but they take a second to bend back. That's how they are designed in order to minimize damage to the actual arms. I like them a lot. Much better than the standoffs, and good looking, too.

I am going to the CNC factory today and I'll be able to inform everyone on turn around time for your orders soon. Frames and DIY kits won't take very long. The RXR ones I have to take the time to build them.

Best,
Chris

You can find the gear from most online heli shops, ebay, or local hobby shop.

I bolted the gear to the bottom of the plate, using 4-40 cap screws and nylon lock nuts.

I then put velcro over the cap screws to protect the battery where it attaches underneith.

(I have not flown the CP yet, and I hold BThrisk responsible for this madness...Hahahahaa!)

Onto the batt: The first 3 I ordered were from Value Hobby from here in the U.S. However, it appears they do not currently ship out of the U.S. For those here, it's a really good deal and I like them a lot. 2650mah 40C for $23 ea and shipping was cheap/fast. I forgot to mention; these batts ARE NOT as heavy as advertised. They are actually 231g ea.

http://www.valuehobby.com/power-syst...1-1v-lipo.html

The next 4 batts are from a company here in the U.S. that does in fact appear to be willing to ship to you guys in Canada. Actually they are worldwide and have warehouses in China and U.S. I found them through an advertisement here on RCGroups and there's already a thread here on them. Don't bother with the first page because its mostly speculation BS. Just go to the last page and see what they're saying.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1734415&page=8

I went with the 3000mah 40C/80C burst for $24 I just got them yesterday and have not tried them because of the strom that just blew through. They'll be fine I'm sure. Good communication, price, and fast shipping. Oh and they even threw in 12 free AA batts for my Tx...Just part of the deal. The weight on the Value Hobby batts are lighter and I also suspect but have not confirmed that these are lighter as well somewhere in the 250-260g range. If I get a chance I'll find-out for sure and let you guys know.

http://www.chinahobbyline.com/ProductShow.asp?id=2365

I should also mention both batts came with the correct connectors for your Armattan. Damn, I've let the cat out of the bag now.

Props were bought (Gemfans) from Dan. He's the guy that me and Brian pointed out earlier in this thread. If you have any Q's, just fire away...At least until the Raider game starts..

And as far as "long smooth flights" well.....I'm just saying you will be to drunk with power to do so...Hahahahahaa!

You'll see what I mean soon enough. I would STRONGLY recommend you drop the stick scaling down to the 40% range until you get the hang of it. Even at 40%, you can stand this thing on it's nose, punch it and it will be waaaaay the hell out there in less than 2 seconds....Hahahahaa you'll see.

Wow, thanks for all that info! I'm researching the 2 sites for batteries, checking on shipping costs etc. I just don't want to get the wrong setup and regret it later. Just being honest with myself, I'll be sorely tempted to take off as far as I can. I've had the F45 out far enough that I couldn't really tell it's orientation. I guess it would be pretty darn hard to fly by instruments but my thought was I'd at least have a chance if I end up out of visual range... well I'd also have GPS coordinates to help.

I'll definitely start at or below 40%. I don't want to blast this around until I get to know it. I am sufficiently afraid and awestruck by what I've seen so far and intimidated by the skill of the pilots from the videos I've seen. I'm going over my head but at least there are tons of amazing people (like yourself) helping n00bs like me out. THANKS!!!

How about I put this kit in a box and ship it to you next Tuesday? Would that work for you? Payment pending, of course. Confirm if you're interested.

Good news guys, I was at the factory today and all the CNC parts will be ready Friday. I have the motors, escs and kk2s already and everything else in stock. So looks like all the frames and DIY kits are shipping next Tuesday. I should have time to assemble a good few rxr quads, too.

Best,
Chris

I think that's called free advertisement because it looks like a whole lot of fun. I love the small models like this. Light weight, lots of power, and still very stable. Nice controlled flying in closed quarters, there, mate.

Best,
Chris

Show CNC 355 model for sale

Since you guys are waiting on your Armattans, might as well give you a bit of something to watch.

Armattan CNC 355 (3 min 40 sec)


Does anyone want to buy it? It has about 4 flights to it. It's not damaged. I's the ORIGINAL CNC 355. First one built. Since it's not exactly new, I'll fit a new KK2 on it and I'm asking 200$ for it. Shipped, of course. You save 25$ This offer is not applicable to those who have already placed an order. Give someone else a chance, gents.

Best,
Chris
