Chameleon

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.

Does the Monster v2 stick out at all? or is it very well protected?

Fechner   May 23, 2017 

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.
