Having wanted to build the Armadillo for awhile due to the sheer sleekness and size i finally jumped when Joshua Bardwell did a raving review on it. I knew immediately it would sell , and after placing my order in at armattanquads it sold out in a couple of hours. Already having flown cleanflight/betaflight boards (naze32), I wanted to see what the hype was with KISS, and so i bought all KISS components, except for PDB as the armadillo had one. I also went with the skizto edition of lumenier motors. Due to the size i went with the XSR rtx as i fly FrSky (Taranis), i also went with the unify pro Race, and furious fpv mini UFL antenna. The build was tight, though i managed to squeeze all components in. When running on 4S this thing is a BEAST. At near ground touches tapping the throttle sends the quad rocketing 50ft in the air instantly. The flying is smooth, and the response is impeccable. I LOVE IT! and as a nod to Iron man, I named it Mark 30 as that was the blue iron man suite.

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
