On photo №5 second esc from blow has a join between caps (or resistors, i don't know honestly). Just finished my build and notice, I'm having same thing on 1 of 4 esc's. Did u had any issues with this ?

Just figured out it's fine. Other esc's has that contact too.
Anyway, nice quad and video!

What can you say about this motor model?

Can you do one of these with the arms in the top position and the electronics under? Would be really cool to see and help me plan mine.

Personaly, i like it better in "normal". It's damn well balance and kind of "buttery", definitely for smooth freestyle.
For freestyle you want to have an even mass distribution on all axes and as close as possible to the center of the X.
Left/right and front/rear balance is quite easy but for top/bottom it's trickier since the middle referal is not the X of your frame, rather your "prop line".
If you build it "reverse", you'll have your prop line at the middle of your battery pack and so, more weight under than above=not good.
This is theory by the way, if you look at Ummagawd's Remix it has the same issue that i just described but seems to work well eitherway.

Midmount is definitley smoother and more flowy in my experience. If you like doing a lot of looping and diving it definitley has an easier time, the top mount even at 10 or 15mm stabilizes itself a little easier so if you like to cruise along the ground a lot it has an easier time doing that. Very locked in. I prefer the CG in a top mount build, and then the Vert Freestyle for a midmount.

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
