FleXin' On Them

Flex RC came out with a 2.5 inch ultra lightweight frame. I can't wait to try it.

4/25/18 - At 10.5g this is one of the lightest frames available in any brushless size. The frame is in stock and shipping at FlexRC.com

I have the Omnibus in hand, the Wave 4in1 is a direct connection to the Nano with an 8 pin connector. 2DogRC is going out of business and had it on sale for $18.99

Motors ordered.

Camera, VTX, props, and battery ordered.

04/30/18 - The camera, props, and battery arrived. The VTX was the wrong size. I tried assembling the frame but there are 2 feet notches at the rear that don't seem to fit in place easily. I think a slight filing of the area will allow it to fit better. The frame came with lots of standoffs and screws. It's larger in footprint than you'd expect from pictures.

05/01/18 - I took a file to the rear of the roll cage hooks where they meet the baseplate. It's hard to describe the area but if you buy this frame you may need to give it about 20 file strokes for those rear hooks to slide into place easily. Snug but not impossible/breaking point. All parts are in except the TPU protection cover. My buddy is printing in a Chartreuse TPU.

How are those 3B-R motors? Do they get hot on 3s?
I ordered the 6000kV's to be save

Insanely powerful and smooth. Would buy again.

Which Caddx is that? Looks like you've got a Foxeer listed.

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..

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..
