Armattan CF Mini Tricopter / Quadcopter
Instead of all those H style mini quads, how about a tricopter? Seems like a good time for one.
And of course, the maiden of the prototype frame in tricopter mode:
AUW before lipo was 420g.
9 packs were run that day, ranging from 3S 950mAh (5 min flight time @~45% hover throttle) to 3S 2200mAh (9 min flight time @~55% hover throttle). This was with SS 2300kV and 5030 props.

And we also have the quad version by altering the amount and location of the arms.
And she also flies very nicely.
Build pictures (same as above, just one extra arm!):
What I have on the prototype (current recommended setup). It is one fun flier. And as you can see, its seen some loving.

I like that a lot. I think I might have to get one and run in quad configuration!
Love that you went 3mm on the arms, should be another bullet proof frame!

Thank you everyone! More pictures and info will be coming once I get my big order of hardware in. The prototype I flew is cobbled together with various lengths of screws etc that I had lying around, so it isn't the prettiest of things. Well, I think it's kinda cute, but I might be a bit biased.
