Armattan Tadpole HD
Introducing the Tadpole HD! Ever since we released the beloved Tadpole, pilots have tried fitting HD components in it with more or less success.
We've had so many requests for a HD version of this frame from people who fly digital, but it was not as easy as just changing a few things. In fact, none of the tadpole parts are cross compatible with the new Tadpole HD.
The Tadpole HD's lipo top plate sits higher a bit. This allows for more room to fit the HD gear, thus solving the main issues when trying to build an original Tadpole using digital components. The top plate is also a tad longer and the main plate no longer requires an adapter plate to fit a whoop style AIO flight controller.
The Tadpole HD is basically the same as the original Tadpole except it has additional provisions and design implementation allowing to build it using analogue gear and also digital gear. A bit like a Tadpole V2 in a way.
You can have a look at the original Tadpole product description to see what we were shooting for with this design.
All in all, this a revamped version of the ever popular Armattan Tadpole.
