Armattan Chameleon build with KISS components, and T-Motor F40 II motors. The Microminim OSD is taped to the back of the FPV camera. The receiver used in the photo is the Spektrum SPM4649T, which I have replaced with the FrSky XSR. I was getting sick of the failsafes. Now I have more than twice the range.

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