Built it for a friend who wanted an easy flying cruiser/trainer.

I like the new Ascent X HD frames, they seem very sturdy and the new canopy design is nice. It should hold up well.

The total weight without the battery is 100g. Not sure about acro but she's a fast backyard flier even on 2S.

Actually, my favorite is 3" Komori but they were out when I built this. Komori is back in stock. You should try this prop on a light build like this. You will not ask why after that. I am a big fan.

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..
