Sweet build! What are those pink and blue sleeves around the wires that lead to your motors? Can you provide a link? Cheers

It's just some high density sleeving from a company called PrimoChill, they do computer modding stuff so I just got the sleeving there, I added the link under misc parts for ya!

Daaaaaaaaaamn! This thing must be crazy! Is there any more data available around the Mjolnir motor's performance numbers? I'm curious about the actual amp draw and interesting that they're rated for 1kW of power!

MadMikeFPV   1 hour ago 

Oh it is :D Way too fast for me still.. But getting there.

Hopefully we'll get some results from MQTB soon.. If I get lucky I get to test them before that. A fellow fpv'er mentioned he has access to some real test equipment. Would be interesting to see the numbers.

If the weather allows it today, I'll pop on a gps and see just how fast it really is.

Those motors look pretty beastly, would you recommend them over f60? What is the weight like per motor?

metropolis   2 hours ago 

They are SO beastly! Tbh, they blow pretty much any other motor out of the water but that performance likely comes at a price: amperage. My OSD isn't configured properly to show me current draw so I have no idea how much these guys were screwing me, but I did destroy four batteries. (See the second half of the video)

If you run more mellow pitched props you should be in a better place than I was :p

Hey man great video. Going to build mine soon. One thing I'm trying to figure. Is if you use a different camera and vtx. Where to you hock them up to not seeing a spot on the board to do that

Thanks

There are a couple of 5v out pads that can be used. If you need direct voltage you can simply use the power pads on the F/C without a problem.

Where did you get the U shaped carbon top plate to go with the pod?

First build! Just wondering if anyone could be so kind as to point out any problems with my component list. Thanks.

Thanks man, I think I will go for a 200mW, switchable would be preferable dependant on price. I think I was being overly paranoid about range. Tonight's the night, I got 4 large beers, my bank card in hand and I'm going to order my shit! Not been this excited since Chad asked me to the prom before he realised I wasn't a girl.

deduhej   5 hours ago 

Haha no worries, you don't really need a switchable I think, it was just in case you really wanted a 600mW one, then switchable might be important. Good luck!

So good, what is the weight?

Charles Hidalgo   9 hours ago 

260g

JC250 commented on a Build, RONIN v2 Hyperlite Floss 5"   21 hours ago  

The creator of this frame (kababfpv) says that this frame is tough enough for freestyle since the builds are potentiallly around 250g. What is your experience with the durability of this frame and how well does it protect its components (specifically the motors)? Iv had a bad experience with my qavx clone with breaking motors and want to transfer my components over in the near future if it is as durable as kababfpv says

TheLeprechaunPirate   10 hours ago 

There are definitely a lot of exposed parts in the internals, so don't expect it to be good at protection, although so long as your arms don't break off, a majority of everything within its "bubble" should be fine.
So far the motors have been fine but the only thing protecting them are two prongs sticking out of the arms. And surprisingly I haven't broken the frame yet.

Nice detail. I'm still in the process of speccing my own Chameleon build and making notes. (https://rotorbuilds.com/build/4203)
Like you, choosing between various 4-in-1 ESC's is confusing.

J-Lar commented on a Build, Chameleon#1   17 hours ago  

Nice build! im going to do something pretty similar and i was just wondering if you had any issues fitting your arrow v3 in the chameleon? i have a monster v2 which is the same housing, i've heard mixed things about fitting it on the chameleon, would love to hear your experience on it.

Bonnervision   15 hours ago 

I have two Chameleons, both with Arrow V3s in them and neither had any problems, You do need to slide it in there a specific way and to get it in/out, you have to remove the aluminum 'pod'.

I dont think you will have any problems.

thomaazz commented on a Build, Frostbite   16 hours ago  

Awesome build!
Do you have some more detailed pictures of the frame? Im in the proces of designing my own custom frame for a zoompod.

PandaFPV   15 hours ago 

The zoompod and face grabber jusy go off 40mm x 40mm mounting

Did you go with the 3" thick arms or the 4" thick arms?

FPVillain   1 day ago 

I went with the 4mm arms. The frame has already gone through a lot of abuse and I didn't manage to break them. Only one broken top plate so far.

Which capacitors are you using on the escs?

tweakfpv   1 day ago 

They are 25v 220uF caps.

Prowler commented on a Build, Chameleon Build   8 days ago  

How did you mount your Unify Pro? I ended up breaking it while trying to find a suitable place to mount it. Do you have any close ups of the pigtail where it connects to the Unify?

tweakfpv   1 day ago 

I took the pigtail off and turned it around back under the heatshrink (up to halfway) - there's a close up of that there. Word of warning though, you need to peel away the black silicone from where the antenna is glued on as that does a really good job of preventing the antenna ground from connecting once you've pulled the pigtail out from under it.
