Ro-Ro-Ro-Torius! 2.5" with Runcam Split mini.
My first micro build, came in a bit heavy, but thats alright (for the first one). 118g with foamy pads and zipties (not pictured), 185g with the flight controller armed.
Used RCX 1304 4000kv not the 5000kv listed below. I changed the standoffs for 25mm ones to fit the Runcam Split mini, Preorderd the new V2 (with 1 board) maybe it will fit with the provided 20mm standoffs... we shall see... Also I would probably would use the akk nano v2 style vtx as the akk x5 is more square, the v2 would fit better. Finally don't forget more m2 hardware!! m2x6mm for the props!
Flys awesome, need to work on: jello... mounting/ sheilding the capacitor away from the rx and vtx (fpv feed is noiser than I am used to) adjust the pids and rates (I normally fly a 6"... the 2.5" is like a crazy angry little bug!), Securing the battery better (as seen in the vid..)

Update: The runcam split mini 2 fits with the 20mm standoffs! :( I had a short, magic smoke came out of the board.... so back to V1... Drat.

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..
