I can't fly my Chameleon at my house because it is a damned rocket. This will be a slightly less oomph-y rocket.

UPDATE: I failed at it being less oomph-y. Oops.

Dry weight is 222 grams, with battery brings it to 330g AUW.

With DAL 3045 bullnose props I get about two minutes, maybe two and a half if I take it easy, from the 850mAh batteries. Total amp draw is about 72A. I am switching to Lumenier 3040 triblades to see if I can get that amp draw down. Thrust should still be similar, so I'll have around 7.8:1 thrust ratio.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
