I felt like building a big boi quad with a semi-autonomous/GPS/etc. flight controller & this was the result. Originally built with Tarot 4108/380kv & generic T-style carbon fibre props I later upgraded it to much smoother running T-Motor 3508/380kv & APC MR props. It went around Pakistan before the upgrade & Iceland after.

In hindsight I really don't like the frame nor the massive Peli case it needs for safe transport, so I'm toying with the idea of selling the case & rebuilding with the much better looking Daya H4 680 frame which will also fit into a much smaller Peli case that I already own.

Have you experienced any problems using the higher voltage battery with the 4s max rated batteries on eithr of your builds that use the Tarot motors?

After further investigation on my end it looks like I purchased MN3508 KV580's instead of the KV380's. In your opinion would you say it would be safe to use the KV580 motors? The 380's are out of stock every where I've looked at onine with the USA and buying from T-motor direct wont fit in my budget as they are selling the KV380's for $90 USD.

I wouldn't run the 580kv on 6S, as the T-Motor website says they are a 3-4S model. You might get away with it, especially if you set the max throttle way beneath 100%, but I personally wouldn't risk it.

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.
