Garuda 200 is available now at Falcon Multirotors!

It's a Garuda with a SirinFPV! This build was super clean with the Sirin providing the FC, OSD, VTX, and blackbox logger.

I used the Garuda Race Canopy (affectionately nicknamed the "race thong") and the 3mm bottom plate on this build to make it a little more lightweight. It weighs in at 296g dry with LEDs and a durable antenna.

I actually ran the pigtail forward and under the flight controller to prevent stress on the solder joints. The XSR sits on top of the FC, and the COB LED bar on top of that. There are two more COB LED bars under the arms, and all 3 are powered by the Uberdistro's 12V regulator.

I ran the current output from the Uberdistro PSB to UART2 RX and set feature CURRENT_METER, then set current_meter_scale = 183, and Sirin instantly showed my current usage on the OSD.

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.
