Who has received the CNC 355 so far? Let's see some damn pictures and videos guys! I have 2 on the way (along with the M750), but haven't some other people received them yet?

Just an update guys. If you look at the orders list on page 1, you'll see that orders from # 1 through # 24 have been shipped. One or two other orders down the list have also been shipped but they are not CNC orders and I made those while waiting for the CNC parts. That's why they shipped first.

So what next? Well, I coated the arms for order # 25 this evening and I'll be starting the day assembling this tomorrow and working my way down the list from there.

Pretty much everyone whose order is listed below # 25 was told 3-4 weeks turn around time and I don't think that will be a problem. In fact, I think it will take less time than that but I can't make promises. DIY kits will ship faster.

I have obligations next week and shipping will not be on Tuesday. Next shipping day is Thursday 12/6. It's a two day delay on my normal shipping day which is usually Tuesday, but I'll still be well under the promised date for orders shipping on that day. My plan is to have orders # 25 through # 35 in the mail next Thursday and maybe some DIY kits ordered after that.

But do remember that a plan is a plan. Goals fail but plans may change.

And then the rest of the current orders should ship the following Tuesday. If this all works out, then I'll be well within the promised turn around on all orders on that very long list.

Thanks for your confidence, guys, and thanks for the feedback, too. If the above seems too long for you or if the holidays are hitting the wallet too hard and you need to cancel your order, please do so BEFORE you receive a notice from me requesting payment when your order is ready. That's not a problem.

And for the remaining orders, I'll extend the same offer. If you pay me in advance and save me the trouble of requesting payment; I'll throw in 2 spare skids in with your order.

Best,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Yes. I registered here to order. My paypal is verified and I found your quads through Youtube. If you could throw me on the list that would be super.

Armattan in the wind

Well here is a video from this morning flying one of my Armattan quads. These are my first attempts at aieleron and front flips. It's been howling wind here the last few days but was only supposed to be about 20 mph today so I decided to go fly. I've been flying the quad about a month now but just started doing flips. Today my goal was practice the rolls and flips. Sorry for the quality of the video as it is just one of the small keychain cameras.

Chris designed and built a great performance quad as I'm not a very good pilot and the quad makes it look easy. Hope to get a better camera in the future. For all those that have ordered quads from Chris, your are in for a real treat when you get out to fly one.

Quad in the wind (3 min 40 sec)


Thanks, Jerry

You're on the list, Sir. Order # 40. 3-4 weeks. Or less. You're is a DIY kit so it will most likely go out sooner than that.

Thank you and have a nice weekend.

Best,
Chris

I'm just going to throw this here in case I get lucky. I need an iPhone 3 or 3s, guys.

Color doesn't matter but it has to be unlocked. I'm willing to build and ship an Armattan quad as a trade.

I would also consider an iPhone 4 but I guess I would have to throw in a few bucks to make up the difference in market value.

So if you have one of thems kicking around that you don't need anymore and want to trade, let me know!

@Phasor,

Awesome progress in your flying, Sir. Thanks for posting the video and the feedback.

Best,
Chris

You needed to watch the video about pre-flight check in which I mention that stick scaling needs to be tuned down for some pilots. On some recent orders when the pilots clearly mentioned being beginners, I have lowered this to 30 before shipping.

Thanks Chris, I'm practicing and crashing but it's fun learning and repairing. I have gained a lot of experience watching your videos and enjoy them very much. Please keep them coming.

That happens when i read and reply @6AM

Do you ship the KK2's to the guys with stock PI settings ?

It's really worth tuning IMO, i like the feeling of higher gains, it follows stick commands more precise and "close"

I tune the board before shipping. 130 is too high. Makes landing tedious because the quad bounce up when touching down. It's great when in the air, though. You're getting quite good and I can understand you like a crisp stick response. You want to get your hands on an open pilot board, mate. The stock settings on the op feels like a kk2 cranked up to 200 on p gain. The response is incredible. It makes recovering after aggressive moves a lot smoother.

I'm a big fan of the kk2. I think it's a great platform for acrobatics and it's price is unbeatable. But I've been flying op for a while and I won't have anything less now. It's that much better. At first I could not tell that much difference but now that I have my cc3d tuned well, I can tell the difference. The op is in a class of it's own.


Best,
Chris
