I'm sooo beyond pumped at how awesome this quad build went. I thought my first chameleon was a beauty but I think I like this one more. Better components, better frame, better looks it's a win, win, win!!! She flies like a dream and is a freaking tank, I've proven that to myself plenty of times. First time trying my hand at anodizing titanium, tried a splatter pattern to match the vinyl and I love how it came out! Super proud, let me know what you guys think!

Great looking quad! How are the amps with those motors on 4s? I have the same ones and I'm also going to be using 30 amp ESCs. I'm hoping my batteries will be my current limiter as T-Motors site states 45 amp potential on these guys...

Klean_kwadsfpv   Feb 05, 2019 

I had to go with some 35a ESCs that capped at 45 because these motors will draw some crazy amps. With my 1300 100c battery on punchouts fully loaded I was in the realm of 100a, with my 1500 I was at around 115-120. it flew like a damn rocket ship though haha and I loved it.

Ha ha awesome, sounds like fun! I pulled the trigger on a DALRC Rocket 45amp AIO just to be safe. I think I may need to invest in some higher than 80C 1500mA 4s batteries to get the full fun potential. Thanks for the amp info!

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
