Silver 2306 Chameleon

Well this is my second Chameleon!
After damaging my first one (About 2 weeks to get warrantied exchange parts), I decided to get a backup to get flying all the time.

So I decided to go a little bit bigger (and follow the hype) with 2306 T-MOTOR F40 vIII 2400Kv.
Those motors are superb, really nice mate silver finish.

Hi, like your build! How do you manage inserting battery plug if the power plug is behind action camera? Is it too tight?

A bit annoying sometime but its ok really

Loving the look of the F40IIIs on the silver chameleon... What kind of flight times are you getting with them? How do they compare the the 2206 Oomphs?

Well they feel a bit more powerfull to me, but I changed the ESCs as well

Love the build, how do you find those f40's in regards to power?
Was wondering whether the xt60 in this (link below) flight controller would match up with where you have yours behind the session mount?

I dont think so, as I'm using cable I can bend them and get the desired angle, with a direct XT60 soldering it might be very tricky :/

Ok thanks for your comment. Am expecting my FC combo thing to come very soon, and will post the build once I'm finished.

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..
