Super fast long range Chameleon with a huge 6s battery.

I also threw together XF and GPS mounts which are listed below.

I could only fit two WS2812B LEDs in the LED mount but they still look really good.

You might need tall motors like F80s and thin props to clear the GPS mount

1/24 Added Gopro Mount, GPS Mount, and XF mount

1/26 Added Additional LEDs. Last night while I was trying to sleep, I realized I could simply solder a whole lot more LEDs to the end of the 2 LED strip I have mounted to the back. So today I threw it together, and couldn't be happier. All I did was wrap the strip around the mid-deck standoffs and back. I'll probably figure out some kind of cover to protect the LEDs and diffuse the light a bit. There are a total of 17 WS2812B LED's, and setup in Betaflight was very easy.
