Initial tests of this rig with 6" gatebreakers went really well, and when I put on the 7" HQs, it flew beautifully with a mostly stock tune. I'm getting roughly 25 minute flight times on Multistar 10C 5.2Ah 4S packs, and it flies a little heavy but still fine on a 6.6Ah multistar.

Why so much TBS gear?

bensonk   May 01, 2018 

Is that a serious question?

Yep - other than convenience during assembly, are there many significant benefits to using so much TBS stuff on one quad?

That's a totally legit question, and I'm really sorry it's taken this long to answer it. The short answer is yes, and the reason is super tight integration between all the TBS electronics. The frame I chose because it's unique, and I wanted a sub-50g 7" frame. The motors are a nice low kv lightweight but still powerful choice for spinning 7" props. Crossfire is mandatory for me, because that's the LRS I'm invested in, and if I run crossfire I insist on having a TBS Core OSD. Since I wanted to stay light and go with 5.8GHz video, the FPVision that integrates the TBS core and a unify pro was the obvious choice, which indicates a powercube. The 4in1 powercube ESC is the lightest option and definitely beefy enough to spin these motors on 4S, and the colibri race is just the flight controller you use if you're running a cube.

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..
