I love Armattan frames!!
After 4 Roosters, 6 Chameleons and 2 Mongooses, it is time to check the brand new Marmotte :D

I anodized the camera cage with appx. 100V current. I think the titanium in the camera cage is not so good quality, than in early roosters. I could not get solid color. I have anodized several times and usually parts get really solid color, now the parts started boiling and the color got rainbow effect. Luckily I have rainbow color motors, so it looks really cool! :P

I designed new light wire protectors to arms and printed them from soft TPU82A, so they are easy to slide over the arms. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3532763

Also quick draw a mount for Immortal-T antenna/Frsky R9 Mini and Unify Race 2. These parts, including the stack nuts are printed from neon green TPU98A.

Painted the micro eagle titanium gray to match the aluminium parts.

Awesome build! Do you get the Ti frame in the fpv feed with the micro eagle and does it fit without spacers as its 19mm?

M490fpv   Jun 25, 2019 

sorry, have missed your question. no, frame does not come to fpv feed when they are adjusted to and the camera mounting bars are flexible, so they bend easily to 19mm cam.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
