Armattan Chameleon Ti 6"

The 6" Chameleon Ti is a radical freestyle platform with gobs of thrust and a crazy ability to stop dead instantly from any freefall. This rig doesn't get flown as much because it has a Unify V3 that's very touchy about the 5V power supply, and as such the video feed is just noisier than anything else that has, for example, the Mach 2 or Unify HV. Clearly the V3 is made to work with a specific TBS setup and I've chosen poorly.

Regardless, the setup flies great, and even though the F80 2500kv motors are massive, the weight, power, and size of the quad still has a nicely balanced feel to it. A lighter weight, lower kv motor set might improve the 'flickability', but currently it's a very nice cruiser with a beastly top-end.

Now that 6x4x3 V1S props are available, and the Mach 2 VTx has smart audio compatibility fixed, I'm interested to try them out on this quad and spend some more time with it.

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..
