Armattan quads
« on: August 05, 2016, 22:04:34 »
I'm thinking of buying one of these the 226 armattan
When Thay say life time guarantee does that mean
As many arms or other carbon bits that you brake
For the rest of my life and who are f I bought one would replace them

Pretty much Chris at armattan takes his warranty very seriously, just make sure you read what is covered because some parts on some frame are not, saying that my integrated fc blew it's 5v rail and they sent me a replacement foc as a good will gesture.

If I was to spend over £25 on a frame it would be a Armattan.

It's because of you I was thinking about them
Are armattan uk based I haven't looked to be honest
I've just looked at makitbuildit so if I got one from make it build it and broke it I'd still have to go to armattan for a replacement part

The warranty is on most parts ... From the top of my head parts that aren't covered are the entire SCX

And the top plate of the F1-4, F1-5 & F1-6

However the warranty is on the frame, forever.  Doesn't matter if you bought it direct from them, from a supplier or second hand!

I've already had 2 arms for my F1-6

The scx is from the Armattan light  range, that doesn't carry the warranty for good reasons - they are light racing frames, designed for speed and agility, they will break.

The warranty covers the other ranges with exceptions as above.

Armattan are based in Taiwan.  However they use resellers so there are stockists in the uk

And I don't have a frame that is designed better or cut neater than my scx

Jazzz you can go directly to Armattan and get the CF226 for £50 inc shipping, to be honest with this statement "All the carbon fibre parts of this model are backed by our lifetime warranty" it's got to be a win win surely?

Armattan are fantastic from a quality and customer service point of view and their $5 worldwide delivery I have had nothing but great experiences.

I had a v-tail which I lost and 2 others slowly coming together and can only say that the design and quality really are so far in front of almost everything I have ever seen it's ridiculous.

Their prices direct from Chris (Mr Armattan) are great, they're not cheap but compared to the UK prices of not so good products I'd say they're incredibly good value.

Check the frame details on their site and they will detail what parts aren't covered by the lifetime warranty.

They also have some very good build videos of their products that show the attention to detail.

After searching for quit a while I can't get another dark tail
Or a 23# or an original dark tail from Sweden I think
The only othere good looking acro frame I can find are the armattan that look like Thay can stand some abuse
I like to stick to the same frame same everything even battery size it helps with acro I find .
Thanks for the replays

Jazz,

I'm selling my acro quad in the classies if you're interested? It's aluminium arms so very robust, all set up and ready to roll. I will be sorry to see it go, so I'd love it if it went somewhere I knew it would be appreciated. We can discuss cost :)

I'm glad you sold all your stuff mate ...
I did have a look at the acro quad and was thinking about it
But dident fansy the kiss flight control or having to solder
A new receiver on as I'm on spectrum.
 
I'm after a new frame really there is some one selling a few
Original dark tail called ecks but the price didn't sound
To good to me.
Nothing ridiculous but I only payed a fiver for the last one
And he's selling for £40 delivered
If I can find some were that sells carbon fibre sheets for the right price I'll make my own.
Until then I've ordered a few £5 frames I've used before
That are prity strong
Till I save up for an armattan or find something better
Because Thay are prity heavy at 130 grams the dark tail
Was 80 grams and only a fiver

No worries, thought I'd offer :)

The KISS FC is to be fair, a lot better than the Naze I think. But I can understand not wanting to get involved with it!

I'm sure the kiss stuff is fantastic but my computer skills are
Next to incompetent.
It's taken months for me to get my head around the nase
Just to fly acro I still have no idear how to set up self level
And horizon.
That's probably why my acro flying is ok I have no othere option

Yes I think there must have been one left on a shelf or the one you see on the YouTube video being waked on the counter.
I was told I could have my money back or a used one found
In the store room .
So I took the used one

Pulled the pin or plug on an armattan 226 can't wait
It's the most expensive single item I've ever bought for RC
Flying excluding the cameras...
And I'll have it forever lifetime guarantee

Bloody hell only took 5 months to decide

Everything from the 250 to the armattan all my motors and electrics come straight of in one piece for easy transfer
From frame to frame

These are the last 12 months worth of frames each one
Only cost a fiver and there's one missing £25 for frames for 12 months.
I hope the armattan holds up I'll let you know
