This is my first Armattan frame to use. I really like the Chameleon TI and the addons that are available on Thingiverse make it complete.
Here are some thingiverse links that work for me:
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

Thanks to these awesome thingiverse creators I was able to create this build.

The old parts that are used with this frame where from my first build. Altough, these parts are a little old I am really impressed by the performance of this heavy freestyle kwad. With allot of printed addons, this thing is build like a tank. Add a heavy gopro to the mix an you have yourself a flying brick. With the awesome power of four 2700Kv brotherhobby motors, the kwad is able to do some crazy moves(AMPS). This all is supported with a sleek braided cable look and a nice 4IN1 40 amp ESC from X-Rotor. The connection between the flight controller and the ESC is done by a hidden connector between the two boards, which makes it look really clean. The whole system is connected with a TBS Crossfire Nano Rx to keep out the failsafes. All the electronics are housed in the insanly strong Armattan Chameleon TI frame. This kwad lives up to it's name, The Red Tank.

Don't hesitate to ask me something. ;)
Cheers!

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
