Armattan Morphite V1/V2 180mm/224mm Micro Frame






Flips and Stuff [[Armattan Morphite]] (2 min 13 sec)


Bashing Concrete [[Armattan Morphite]] (3 min 27 sec)


Head On Crash [[RotorX]] [[Armattan Morphite]] (3 min 9 sec)


WHY?
So I wanted something a little more micro that many of my minis, something I could fly indoors without much worry. But not a weak brushed quad, I wanted to retain the power that many are used to on the mini frames while still maintaining the small form factor.

WHAT?
So I designed the Morphite 180mm. Unibody design for simplicity and weight reduction. But unibody means if you break an arm you have to replace the whole frame! Good luck, it's 3mm 3k twill carbon fiber. Also, should mention that it has a Lifetime Warranty on the CF components. So ya, good luck.

This frame is spec'd around running 3100kV motors on 3S and 4045 props to give some real speed. Or on 4S if you really want to break the space-time continuum.

Or, if you have a broken 200QX frame but good electronics, the V1 frame is compatible. Install onto this frame and don't worry about breaking it again.

HOW CAN I HAVE?

I posted in the Morphling but ill post here!


I bought a TS5823 vTx and want to be able to use it with my Fatshark dominators v2.

How do i wire this? with the Mini CCTV camera. http://www.surveilzone.com/0.008lux-...3.6-24v-hs1151
Can i put a power wire from the battery to the cam and video signal and video ground to the TS5823?

I could power both the vTx and the mini cam from the battery as they both can handle 12v.

I'm excited about this little guy,

Is there any way you can post some high res shots of the frame?

That video is done with this cam:

And this VTx:

I also had a MinimOSD with MWOSD, but hadn't changed my video type so it didn't display properly.

Like this (this is a different micro I'm working on)

A lot more docile obviously, but I haven't actually tested it. I have a need for speed.

You'll need a filter off the PDB to the VTx, and then run 3 wires from the VTx to the cam. That'd be my recommendation (unless you're using an OSD).

The 5 preorders were the only CF frames I had, and they're all shipped to those that ordered them. Hopefully they can post pictures once they get them (though the design is changed a bit).

My vTx doesn't have a power out.

Solder the power wires going to the cam to the same pads where the wires coming from the filter attach to the VTx. This will share the power across them.
