The Armattan Chameleon 5″ was the first quad I flew that felt more like a bird than a brick in the air.  The design was a game changer at the time, and it was undeniably gorgeous.  When I look at it now all I see are the hassles I’ve had in rebuilding it.  More on that […]

Almost halfway to the finish line folks.  Incidentally, I’m a little over halfway to my target weight of 220 lbs, though I’m not sure if I can make it with just 47 days to go.
