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.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
