My first build, a 5" Armattan Chameleon -- Expected Completion Date 04/20/2017.

Update 1: Build is complete sans props. I am working on getting FrSky XM+ to work nicely with my Taranis Q X7. One would think they would work nicely out of the box, but one would be wrong. This is my first ever build, I have only ever flown brushed motors, so this will be an experience. I plan to fly a lot of simulators before ripping this thing around, but we will see if I have the patience for that. Also, I added a PDB since armattan had sent me a bonus connector saver and I had another armattan order already. I lose current monitoring over the shunt resistor, but I gain a solid XT60 connection and build simplicity.

Love it! Is that going to work with Taranis x7 and skyzone 02s? (I dont know how to tell) if not what will I have to change?

This is intended to work with a Taranis x7, so you should be good there. It appears from a quick glance that this build would work with the Skyzone's too, but I would definitely confirm this.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
