My good 'ol trusty OG Chameleon running BF 3.5.0, in the modern digital era. I had to extend the rear deck area to accommodate the AU (if I had an extra Vista, I would have gone that route). I have not flow it yet, or done any crash testing. ...and PSA, this will void the Armattan frame warranty.

Great job! Thank you for sharing your build and print designs. Does the cage get in the DJI camera's view (whether 4:3 or 16:9)?

did you design the printed parts that hold the camera? I got an adapter off thingverse but its really tight fitting

yes, you can find them on the thingiverse link up above.

very nice! I'm looking to to the same to my OG Chameleon. If I go with a vista unit, you think everything fits without modification?

yes, that would be the better choice

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.

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..
