Cragon v2

Operational: September 2018 – September 2020 (death by loss in the mountains)

There were two iterations of the Cragon. Cloud … Dragon … Cragon .. well, that was the reason for the name. My second iteration of my first home build and intended for strong-arm performance. Check out the Cragon page on the Rotor Builds site.

I chose an Armattan Chameleon Ti 5″ frame and combined it with a Matek F405-CTR flight controller and KISS 32A ESCs. I built it twice, as I ditched the first Cragon into a river on the maiden flight. The second one took a lot less time to build and instilled a greater pre-flight check mentality. You learn from your mistakes …

The build contains separate ESCs, a Matek F405 and a TBS Unify Pro video transmitter:

Over the past couple of years, Cragon has flown a number of great flights, capturing lots of beautiful footage.
