Thanks. I need to Chris, I guess.
How does it fly compared to if the motors were at the same level of the center? Or is this just to look different?

I have only flown it inside. It has tons of power. The main reason to bend the arms was to lift the props up out of the view of a camera and I liked the looks.
I'll be able to tell you more after an outside flight or 2, weather needs to cooperate too.

[QUOTE=Bryan's Flyin;23618344]Okay fellas, here is a short video of the Squid maiden inside. I would have taken it out in the snow, but it's a wet snow with rain and chunks of ice!!

Nothing real fancy here, but it does get kind of exciting at the end!!

Let me know what you think.

Thanks Chris "Kringle" !

Best watched in HD!

Greetings Armattan Fans.

I've had a chance to burn through a half dozen batteries over the last few days. What I've found as far as batteries goes, is that the Nanotech 2650mah 3s 35-70c doesn't hold up nearly as nicely as the Zippy 2650mah 3s 45C battery. The Zippy handles a full 8-10 minutes of light to casual flying - only triggering the low voltage alarms right near the end of the flight. The Nanotech on the other hand starts triggering the low voltage alarm during strong accelerations after a few minutes. It still holds on for about 6-8 minutes of light flight. So hands down the Zippy battery is a much better choice for the Armattan.

So... I've compiled some video of the Armattan and my F45 into a mini-movie. It's a long one, 28 minutes. There's a guest in some of the scenes flying a small plane and another guess with his 4x4. I put it all together and played around with the camera views. The vibrations on the quad are quite strong at times. I'll have to work a bit harder on reducing the jello effect for future video. Anyway, here it is. I hope you enjoy it.

Could a guy who's only quad experience is banging around an mQX take their time and learn on one of these or is it just too fast and powerful? If doing that wouldn't be crazy, what is the turnaround time right now on a "Armattan M (Black) RXR DIY Kit" with spares if possible? Thanks!

My only prior quad experience is V929 and V939. I'd take Chris's advice and dial it down real dumb to start with. It's one hell of a terrifying leap from a V929 to an Armattan quad - but let me tell you... it's a thing of beauty.
