Built this incredibly smooth flying Chameleon.

Still waiting on a black runcam to come in to clean up the build some. Also getting a reprint of the vinyl for the top plate so it goes to the end. Considering switching to a 4-1 ESC to allow more color through however I really want dshot 1200 on this build.

Otherwise, happy with how it turned out.

The effect looks better in person. Far more range of colors than I can pick up with my poor photography skills.

Really love that skin!! I've been looking at this one, Is that similar to the one you have here? What are your thoughts on it and how is the installation.

Thats the exact skin. Installation was a breeze!

Very cool quad! Makes me want to rebuild my Chameleon. Question: looks like you have a Tramp HV in it- how did you get v-bat direct from the FC and then did you power the Swift from the Tramp? or from the FC?

I wired up the tramp to the VTX+/- on the board which supplies 7.6V to the tramp. This is considered the correct way to wire it with this board; 7.6V is plenty.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
