My go to. My daily flier. This thing continues to survive crash after crash on concrete. Have had so many comments on the punch. People are surprised when I say its a Chameleon. Not the most efficient setup, but I still get 2 minutes of freestyle with it, and enough power to get out of a pinch. I'm so impressed with the durability of these motors. I've tried s lot of props, but keep coming back to the 5152's for this setup. Take a close look at the esc's and you'll notice that I protect them with pieces of plastic water bottle to maintain that squeaky clean look. Thanks for looking = )

Wow that was a close one. Was that a random person walking there?

No it was a buddy recovering a crashed quad!

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
