Hello everyone!

My last pieces of puzzle had arrived and I finally finished my 5" Chameleon Ti. The build was fairly straightforward but still had some issues to put all the components together and make as clean as possible. So, my main problem was the TBS UNIFY PRO HV VTX and the JHE42B Finder Buzzer because both are way too big to fit on the baseplate of the frame and have some spare space left. My solution for this problem was the UNIFY PRO HV MOUNTING BOARD from WhiteNoiseFPV. So I made a stack with Wolf PDB, TBS Unify Pro HV on the WhiteNoiseFPV mounting board with the TBS Crossfire Nano RX on the bottom side of the PCB and KISS FC V2 right on top. With this stack I saved some space and I could place the JHE42B Finder Buzzer on the back-side of the frame. This solution is the best combo for a clean build!

Another problem was the camera. The width of titanium camera cage is 28.5mm and the camera has 28mm. I had to put a 0.5mm washer on that empty space and now everything fits perfectly! Also another issue was that i couldn't get a 25-27 degree camera angle, with which I ussualy fly, because the 1.8 mm lens are bigger than I expected so I had to move the camera bracket one space below to make it possible. I had a feeling that this is not the best solution and the bracket will crack on the first crash, but seems that it keeps the camera in place and I didn't have any issues.

This turned out to be a fun build and I'm very proud of what came out in the end.

Hope you like it. Fly safe!

Your color scheme is really nice, and I don't have to tell you that the gear is all high end stuff. I really like this build, and i'm assuming you LOVE it. I particularly like the 3D printed "front bumper".

Thank you! Yes I love it and it flies amazing. The 3D printed "front bumper" I take it from here:

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
