This is my second ever drone build after my first budget build only had 5 flights before I fried the board due to bad soldering. I have had a couple pre-built quads and the one I found to enjoy the most was my pre built Chameleon with Oomph motors. I've crashed many times with it and it just keeps on going and flies super stable. Because of that I decided to build a Chameleon from the ground up using their new Velvet motors, this time taking much more care into the soldering and overall look. For my 2nd build, I think I did pretty good.

Maiden Flight + testing our my first race gate.
