Just ordered the chameleon and OOmph motors today. Will update with more pics once all parts arrive and I start building it.

Just arrived in the mail today and man is this thing nice. Was able to assemble the frame and add the motors but still waiting on the FC to arrive from China.

All done and can't wait for the weather to clear up so I can fly her.

Did you ever build your Chameleon?

Sure didn and flying the crap out of it. It's my freeststylenquad now as I'm running a Tokio x and tokio XS for the fast stuff. Sold or selling everything else n

Looks great!! How does it fly?

Got mine ordered and on the way- ordered the oopmh 2205's and the Armattam esc's too- can't wait to build this one!

It flies great. Those oompmh motors have crazy punch, much more than the Emax RS2205S 2300KV Racing Edition's I have on my x210 build. You are going to have a blast with it.

cool!
i'm attempting a similar sort of build! BUT i'm a real newb. i have a question regarding connecting esc to my fc if you can help?
i've gone for dji snail propulsion with a streakf4 FC from unmannedtechshop.co.uk
I'm struggling to decide what to do with my signal cable. do i just tie off the ground and solder the white signal cable direct to my FC? it looks that way with this board but i'm just a little unsure because the esc signal cable has the connector on the end

That is the intended forward for the FC but if it makes the layout easier for you, you can position it any way you want and just set the forward position in betaflight.

No the back right motor is #1. Here is a diagram showing their positions and rotation. https://images.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fpropwashed.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2016%2F03%2F11-MotorsDirectionAndNumbers.png&f=1

aw man! thank you so much! there are a million youtube guides and step by step how-to videos, but to actually ask someone has been the most help i've had!

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..
