Rooster v2

Allllrightythen, let's get to the story!

So I've been trying to save money for a new car and not buy any new quad stuff until spring... then Mr. Steele just has to be a dick and release his limited edition taranis which I have been waiting on since like forever, and theyre only making 499 of them. I simply had to have it! (my current tx is an offbrand called Radiolink which actually has great range, but crap gimbals, no open tx, and no module compatibility). This sent me into a purchasing spiral :)

And the research began:
Armattan Rooster's finally released, um hell yeah, add to cart.
Dayyum Steele dropped his V2 motors too, add to cart.
Receiver.... let's go with the FrSky XM+.

Guess I'll need an F4 board and 32 bit ESCs to boot.

Looks like the Wraith 32 v2's have a ton of caps compared to normal, schweeet, added.

Took a while to decide on an fc, but I saw the Dys F4 Pro v2 comes in at a hefty 10.5 grams, and I'm taking that to mean that it will handle some serious amp abuse! Added.

I'll steal the Unify and triumph from my old chameleon.

Seems like most of the build is v2 parts so I'm simply calling it the Rooster v2 (or maybe I should call it Chameleon v2, as the Rooster is the v2 of the Chameleon lol.)

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..
