LOL... I got about 18 orders so far. It's crazy. That's what happens when you build the best frames in the world, I guess....

Some of the orders are going to take another couple weeks to be completed but the buyers were notified of the time I need for production.

I need to take a day for myself, soon, too. I received my carbon fiber and I really, really want to build my own Armattan CF326.832

Best,
Chris

That's 10 hours of work, right there:



Each plate is marked and drilled by hand, holes are then enlarged where needed, battery straps slots are cut, corners are cut, all holes are cleaned up to make sure there are no metal shards. Then each plate is sanded down and prepped for coating. Took me 9 hours to get these done today. I'm a bit tired.

Bottom line is these quads truly are handcrafted units. I have all the arms cut and ready to go as well. I spent time doing this today but now I'm ready to go on an assembly frenzy.

Note that I am NOT taking any more orders for a while. I want to get the orders I have out of the way, then I want to play/fly and build one for myself. I'll let you guys know when I'm ready to accept more orders.

PS: Guys who ordered 400+ size models, your orders will be shipped next Tuesday if all goes well. I am worried the motors I have on hand are not up to the task of running 9 and 10 inch props for these frames so I ordered motors and they will be here on Wed, or Thur. Frames will be ready by then and assembled. The good news is you'll get the specs you need on your machines to have the performance such nice builds deserve. I simply don't want to cut corners on motors since they are a very important part of the build.

Best,
Chris

I should have yours ready tomorrow (including the spare metal plates), too, Sir, and shipped on Tuesday. If not, well, I shall burn in hell for eternity.

No one even received this model yet. Reports are from me only at this point. I' afraid you'll have to wait. There are reports of other Armattan models, but this one is better.
