Cock-a-doodle-fucking-doo! So excited for this Frame, the Chameleon has been my workhorse for nearly a year and she's still going strong. Excited for a new Armattan frame. She's shipped so I hope to be able to build and post a few pics soon. Everything else is already on my desk...!

Did you paint a normal Runcam case silver and put the Rotor Riot edition in it?

the hypetrains matche the titanium so well, love it.

Yeah, that's exactly what I did. I had a spare 3-hole case lying about because I always use swift 2.

Congrats on the yard bird! looks bitchen. Was waiting on this one and just gave up and built another frame. Like your choice of parts too. The Clracing has become my fc of choice, too friggin easy!

I'm about 2/3 done with the build now (see pics).

This is definitely not a "my first build frame". The design I'm pretty sure would withstand a nuclear blast but that comes with some complexity, some tight part tolerances and some "interesting hardware choices" (i'm looking at you sunk nuts that need hammering in). It also isn't as easy as building in a bus body. However, with lots of pre-fitting and un-soldered assembly I'm satisfied I can fit all the things in the frame and keep things looking nice and clean. Definitely take your time over this one, and plan carefully.

V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..

The ThinkTank FPV Airport Helipak is the premier travel bag for FPV enthusiasts. I've taken this bag across the country and around the world, and I really can't imagine a better pack for the job. It's huge. It's the size of a carry-on luggage, and it's designed specifically for FPV. It offers customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles,..
