So after building an Armattan Chameleon 6” and being blown away with the quality of the frame and how much fun it was too fly I decided to go all out and do a no holds barred dream build!😊😊So I took advantage of GetFPV’s Xilo month and purchase an Armattan Marmotte with a Holybro F7 FC Tekko 32 stack, Rush Tank VTX, RunCam Micro Eagle Lumenier Edition camera, R-XSR receiver and the highlight of the build for me the Lumenier Joshua Bardwell 2407 1750kv motors for 6s. I am taking my time with this build so I only build it once. I have a habit of completing a build in one day and then spending another 2 to 3 weeks tinkering with the placement of components and cable routing. I want this to be perfect from the start!! I’ll post pics of the progress!!

I am finally making some headway!! I had to order some longer plastic M3 screws as I didn’t want to use shorter screws and standoffs. But finally have the Tekko32 ESC installed and the JB motors wired in. I used race wire and I conformal coated all my solder joints and wrapped in shrink wrap and PET extandable tubing. I also mounted the R-XSR receiver and the Rush Tank VTX. I also got the Run Cam camera mounted. I am having a little trouble figuring out where to mount the buzzer. I picked up a hellgate type buzzer with the lipo battery but it’s big and you have to be able to reach the button easily to disarm it after every flight, but I’ll figure it out!

Citrus quad, lol. Looks awesome! I’d watch that cap on the power socket, not too exposed?

I've got Hellgates in all my quads, I'm always deep in the bush ;)

You can disarm it by plugging and unplugging the battery fairly quickly, you don't need to reach a button. In fact, mine doesn't have a button at all.

I've had one fly off in a crash and get ripped right from it's wires (it was obviously in a bad place, and that's on me) I had to take it home beeping, and I couldn't shut it off until I got it soldered back on.

I did shrink the cap that was always planned also I use liquid electrical tape on the bottom of the cap to ensure nothing bad happens!
