Bobcat from Armattan


It's no secret that 4 inch models are making a comeback on the FPV scene. With the right power plant and with new technology available from Caddx and DJI, it is now possible to put together a lightweight 4 inch quad capable of very good endurance and HD recording. The Bobcat is our take on what we think is the best solution for this type of application. 

The Bobcat is a completely different approach to designing. Look at it this way: When we design a 5 inch freestyle frame, we look at ways to beef things up to make it stronger without busting weight. Whereas on the Bobcat design, we looked at how we can preserve the warranty while cutting weight as much as we can. Compromises had to be made. We were able to retain the warranty on all alumi parts and CF parts except the arms. The spare arms are available for less than 2$ each if you crash and break one. 

It's important to understand that this model is not designed for bando flying and shooting gaps. It's designed to be a lightweight platform for exploring and cinematic cruising with better endurance. This is no different than competing models in this category. Despite all that we still have warranty for everything other than the arms on the frame. The cage, the main plate, the top plate, the rear alumi posts and even the standoffs. They are all warrantied for life. 

The frame fits Nebula, Vista, and even the full DJI air unit. It of course, fits analogue systems with its dual stack. 

The alumi cam cage is designed to be stronger and to work better with today's smaller cams. The cage is MUCH smaller than the cages on our previous models. It offers ample, bomb-proof tilting motion to meet smooth cruising and aggressive flying.

Slop-proof arm mounting solution. Third generation CNC rear posts. And best of all, this frame has dual arm configuration. You can build it as a true X configuration or as a compressed X. This is something we have never done before and we're stoked about the results.
