Just finished this build. It was very very tight and I really tried to fit a lot into it, even a Hellgatebuzzer between the stacks, the rather big Graupner HOTT GR12L SUMD and even a 4 LED strip on the back.Just finished this build.

It flies really well, the big motors (1407) rock. Minor yello that does not bother me, but what really annoyed me, I had huge noise in the FPV-feed, lines going zig zag when throttling up in the goggles. Figured it the VCC was not filtered, switching to 5V of the FC solved that.

UPDATE: this frame was to thin and weak for the set-up. All components moved over to an IFLight IH3

If anything, I would blame the vtx with a tiny antenna next to the huge battery wires with xt60. Also, this eachine vtx had a lot of noise one time I have used it. I know it is popular and cheap but I am not a fan

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.
