There's just so many great indoor brushless bnf available for so cheap. We didn't think there was anything great we could offer on top of what was already out there that would set us apart.

That said, we are breaking into another category that we do feel like we can bring our own style to.

Larsco FPV “HD FPV is here!” (DJI Digital FPV System / 3” Armattan Gecko) (3 min 22 sec)

This has occurred to me. I do want to do this. Perhaps next. Especially if I can figure out a way to repurpose the gecko titanium.

We are looking into ways to make the Badger and Marmotte DJI compatible.

Unfortunately, I think we're going to stay out of x class for the time being, since the regulations are ever evolving and quite strict. Once it becomes more defined, and we know our frames will still be allowed by the time they come to market, we may revisit it.

I currently have a Gecko 4 with Mamba 1408s and the AUW with a standard FPV setup (Ratel, nano VTx, micro AXII) and a 3S 850 mAh 35C/70C battery is 246 g. With 1306 motors it might be possible to fit in a Tarsier and a larger battery. Making the frame just 2 g lighter would be a huge benefit (I know that's about 5%, and that's a lot to shave away from that one). Chime in here: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...freestyle-quad if you like.

Not really a big deal but I just flew 1.014 miles away with my GPS ready Badger.

Not really a big deal if you did it with FPV. LOS - then yes!

Actually I agree with you, it just bugs me that the biggest and smallest in my fleet canít have the Armattan logo on them!

My guess - Cinewhoop.
