When you examine the front-end of the Marmotte, you can immediately see the time and care that went into designing this masterpiece. For starters, the cage maintains an entirely titanium build to protect your camera. A mini-camera, this time, because who uses a full HS1177-sized camera anymore? Within that are a pair of 1mm aluminum FPV camera savers. On the off chance that a branch snakes in and wants to crack your lens or case, these are meant to bend first. And if they do get pushed out of place they'll be easier to bend back than your camera is.
Up next is the independent HD cam angle. That's right, we've brought back the ability to tilt your HD Camera (and the onboard FPV camera) at will. That means you can easily capture some backwards, upside-down flying just like your favorite pilots. The cage braces are crafted from a 10mm titanium block using 6-axis milling specifically so that the bolts that lock in the camera tilt will be easily accessible from any angle. And even better, the milling allows us to fine tune the location and amount of strength that we want; shaving unnecessary grams.
Lastly, we took care not to leave any pilot out. We've lowered the stabilization standoff in the cage to ensure that your camera can get down to minimal tilt for you LR or proximity pilots out there. Think 10 degrees or so. And having HD cam tilt means you won't have to cut a foam wedge raise the rear, either.
And the rest of the frame? We've left nothing out. As you've come to expect, an extended aluminum rear provides a protected mount for your VTX antenna, and the raised lips on the front and rear metal help keep you from damaging that beautiful carbon. Not only is the frame 5.5 inch prop compatible, but the longer body means you can more easily fit an HD camera and a bigger LiPo, even at higher tilt. The FC can mount up on either the 30.5mm or 20mm options, and there are 20mm slots for slideable VTX mounting so you can get the perfect fit. Oh, and if you have a half board VTX, we've got you covered too. There's two pairs of 30.5mm mounting holes in the rear just for that.
So right about now you might be wondering what toll of all these upgrades is. Never fear: even with the longer body, and the redesigned front end, this frame comes in 10g lighter than the Rooster. Don't tell us that we're weighing you down.
And of course, it's an Armattan flagship, so you know the deal. There's a full warranty on all Carbon Fiber and metal pieces. Bumper to bumper. Top to bottom. Tip to tail.
