New Product

Armattan Morphling 250 FPV Tricopter / Quadcopter / Vtail / Y6 / X8

Instead of all those H style mini quads, how about a tricopter? Seems like a good time for one.
Buy it and more here:
Scroll down to the end of this post for the manual.
Looking for the Morphite 180 frames? Head over here:

Why? Yaw authority is just one good reason:
Don't Puke (0 min 18 sec)

Line Dancer (3 min 58 sec)

Loser Laps (3 min 0 sec)

And a quadcopter! With the same kit as the tricopter! You don't need to buy anything extra, just gotta have some extra electronics and a bit of spare time to convert it.

High You Are (3 min 41 sec)

Bushwhacking (3 min 34 sec)

Armattan Mini Quad Variant Maiden HD (3 min 48 sec)

You can also adapt it to a Vtail with some additional add-ons!

And it also flies very well!
Fast Laps (1 min 49 sec)

Not So Top Secret Location (3 min 11 sec)

Y4/Y6/X8 capabilities to come!

Armattan Mini Y6 Maiden (4 min 49 sec)

Frames are available! The website is up and running!
Manual is available at the bottom of this post.

Questions or feedback are welcome.

I like that a lot. I think I might have to get one and run in quad configuration!
Love that you went 3mm on the arms, should be another bullet proof frame!

Thank you everyone! More pictures and info will be coming once I get my big order of hardware in. The prototype I flew is cobbled together with various lengths of screws etc that I had lying around, so it isn't the prettiest of things. Well, I think it's kinda cute, but I might be a bit biased.
