IT'S INNOVATIVE.  IT HAS GRIP.  IT'S GOT STYLE.  AND BEST OF ALL?  IT'S ARMATTAN.

 

The Gecko is the latest addition to Armattan's family of mini-freestyle frames.  Designed around the best principals that brought the Japalura and the Rooster to the front of their fields, this frame gives you the best protection and quality that the multirotor kingdom has to offer.

THE CAGE

The cage is cut with 6 axis titanium milling. This is a first for Armattan, and it gives the head of this baby a smooth, svelte expression.  The aluminum camera saver is a new mounting system designed to protect your camera even in the most crushing of cage crashes.  And that's even more important for this frame, because it was designed to safely guard any 19mm micro cam on the market: SD or HD.

THE STACK

The stack mounting system is a fresh take on providing options for pilots.  You no longer have to choose between an M2 or an M3 board because the Gecko offers provisions for both.  While the 20x20, M2, forward stack was designed to be used for a mini HD split camera board (such as the Runcam Split Mini or Caddx Turtle), you can slap any board you want in there.  The rear 20x20, M3 mounting holes will be there for your FC, ESC, VTX, or whatever else is left.  And with the familiar 22mm deck height you'll find that your batteries are safely out of the line of fire of your props, but are also low enough to bring the centre of gravity back down towards your prop-line.

THE TAIL

The tail provides the quality mounting options that Armattan is known for.  A rubber VTX antenna guide channels thinner gauge antennas (up to 1.8mm) upwards, and out of the way of your props.  If that doesn't suit your fancy, simply use the elongated M3 holes to zip-tie your dongle in the tried-and-true way instead.  Lastly, lets put an end to rear-impact delamination.  The carbon itself is protected from impacts by the custom Aluminum standoffs.

THE WARRANTY

We're glad you asked.  Like you might've thought, the entire frame is warrantied.  Carbon, aluminum, and titanium are covered under Armattan's unbeatable lifetime warranty. What can we say, except, "you're welcome?"

We can ship to almost anywhere in the world! Available international shipping options are using United States Postal Service (USPS) or DHL. USPS shipping will be per the flat rate option. This is $28 and can take 6-10 days to reach your country. From here your country postal service will deliver your package and can add additional delivery time. Usually USPS tracking ends once the package reaches your country. Our second shipping option is using DHL. This is considered a premium option and is very fast. Customer service with DHL is the best in the shipping business. Typically DHL only takes 2-3 days to delivery to most locations throughout the world. DHL international shipping always comes with tracking. While this is a more expensive option it is much better than USPS.
