My first real build! After watching reviews on the Chameleon frame, I knew I had to get one. I've been flying/repairing an Eachine Wizard for the past 6 months and it was time to move on to something better. I am really impressed with how the build came out. The PDB is soft mounted to the frame, the FC is soft mounted via O-rings, and the motors are soft mounted. Should be a very noise-free system! Many thanks to @minichado for his help with the build!

Here is a flight video of my build:

Did you do any sanding or trimming to get the Monster V2 in this frame? I just got my Chameleon frame and Monster v2 in the mail. It's definitely a tight fit, but I'm not sure if it's tooooo tight.... Did you do any modifications?

I didn't have to do any modifications to get it to fit. It fits snugly, but I think the rubber grommets allow a little give to get it in there.

It's very close, but it is completely protected. For instance, with the lens cap on, it sticks out slightly, but without the lens cap it is 100% behind the aluminum frame.

This is the 3rd revision in the "Wizard Killer" series of builds based on the Martian II frame. The original Wizard Killer was my response to the successful Eachine Wizard RTF quad. The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..
