Armattan Chameleon 7" Long Range build

Started using a Mamba F7 FC but replaced it later with a Matek F722 SE.

Maximum range tested of 2km (1,24 miles) with perfect video, using the Immersion Rapidfire with Lumenier AX II Patch and the Foxeer Pagoda Pro. TBS Unify Pro was set to 25mW in an open area and flying at an altitude of around 40m (130 feet). Must make more tests in order to find out the maximum video range with the 5.8 GHz setup.

Video setup is going to be replaced with a 2.4 GHz one to get more range, so I only get limited by batteries duration.

Antenna for TBS Micro TX was an Immortal T in the initial setup, but replaced it with an Immortal T extra extended (longer wire) later so I could set it in a vertical position.

Holder for Immortal-T and Runcam 5 has been designed by myself and printed in TPU.

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..
