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...!

I am building almost the same exact model from the same parts. I chose the Mach 2 VTX instead of the Unify. How did you fit the battery stap between the FC and the top plate? Also did you wire the ESC so the current sensing is working or not? I put the ESC the other way in the frame (+ and - pads on the rear).

Hi, super late reply - sorry dude. My Batt strap goes nearer the back of the copter instead of trying to fit it above the FC, where there's a bit more room. with the ESC I did wire up the current sensor, and then told the CLRacing F4s to accept an external sensor, using the bridges on the bottom of the board.

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.

FitzFPV   Jan 11, 2018 

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!

And she's done. Now if only it would stop f'n raining!

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.

The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive 45 degree FOV. And unlike the HD3s, these switch..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
