Just memory of a day out having fun flying my new Armattan Gecko 3 (best 3 inch freestyle quad around) with new lipos and motors. So much more powerful although need to work on that flow and not just charge around like a maniac !! Shot in 1080p @ 30FPS.

New Armattan Gecko Freestlye Frame on an outing to Sussex, UK
Checking out the Vineyard with a hangover. New spot and first test flights with my new frame as I've not been flying for a while. Great to get some HD footage without any props in view. I don't think I will be rushing to buy a CaddxTariser just yet. The Caddx Turtle v2 and Caddx Ratel are working fine for me but I may upgrade if somesome finds a nicer lens for the HD footage from the Tarsier
