This is the second quad I've built. I first built more of a freestyle oriented quad into an Armattan Chameleon 5" and it was pretty sloppy. I tried to get a bit cleaner with my first racing quad and this is the final product! I intend to swap the TBS Triumph for the stubby version of the same antenna to hopefully make it look even cleaner.

Super late reply but I'm 100 percent with you there. I love the props and they look cool too but the extra dollar per set really adds up after how often I'm forced to replace. I've been buying one or two sets of them here and there with a bunch of HQs on backup.

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..
