Race Drone: My Chameleon TI Freestyle Drone
Modified by Amir on the 1. Oct 2018 at 10:57 in FPV | Permalink

Having flown my Chameleon for nearly a year now I must confess that I really really like it's flight characteristic and performance. Having said that, I built a new race drone consisting of a Chameleon TI frame from Armattan. I've also documented how I built this drone in a small build log.

These are the parts I used in this Chameleon TI build:

The drone essentially consists of a commercial frame from Armattan combined with some original parts from Runcam and Frsky. The lifetime frame guarantee of Armattan gives a lot of peace of mind when flying.

The links in the list above for the flight control and BLC point to a german shop. I would propose to buy the flight controller and BLC from a respectable shop in Europe to make sure they are built with a certain amount of quality control.

Besides the drone build these are some of the accessories I've used with it:

As you can see I'm using 5S 95C LiPo batteries with this setup. The drone flys with 4S 95C batteries as well but I've become so used to the plentiful power the 5S batteries deliver that I don't to miss it anymore. I'm also very happy with the iSDT charger. iSDT makes some nice and cheap chargers, my brother and I own 4 of them in total.

Here you can see one of the first flights with the new rig:
