Armattan Chameleon 5″

By   /  February 22, 2018  /  Reviews  /  No Comments

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 […]

Emax BabyHawk R – Maiden Flight

By   /  February 4, 2018  /  YouTube  /  No Comments

This thing is a blast to fly! I only had three batteries for it, and I can tell you that wasn’t enough. It has WAY too much power to fly inside, but this little guy is a real hawk outdoors. It’s as nimble as you would expect without being ‘floaty’.

Armattan Chameleon vs Power Line

By   /  January 14, 2018  /  YouTube  /  No Comments

I took the Chameleon out for the second time after adjusting the rates and the hang time on this drone kept throwing me off. I’m so used to drones falling fast and hard when I let off the throttle, but I swear this thing seemed to have wings. Sadly, I must have clipped one of […]

Lost and Found, Part 2

By   /  January 12, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

I’ve lost a few drones since starting this hobby a year ago.  In every case the reason for the lost drone was pilot error.  The most recent example occured a few weeks ago, right before Christmas.  There is a YouTube post about it here, “Lost and Found“.
