Lang range 4S cruiser. Set up with betaflight GPS rescue using M8N glonass gps. This rendition is a full rebuild from my previos 5.7 Alien that took a dunk in a river. Plenty of power and decent flight times as long as you're concious of your throttle position. The alien frame is a pain to secure batteries via bottom mount but can be done with the correct size standoffs uner the FC.

Nice 7" build. Interested to know your AUW too.
What size batteries are your running?

thanks! never weighed it but its not that heavy. on a 4s 1550mah battery it'll do 8 min flights if im throttle conscious. will be adding a new hero5 mount and go back to top mounting the batteries. feels more stable as a top mount.

Looks great. Whats the range? speed? Got video?

range is good. only been out 2km with it so far just testing the gps rescue mode. custom made rx antenne puts it way up and asay from the carbon ao LQ was 99% the whole way out and back. speed is good. fast enough to cover some decent ground pretty quick but still somewhat efficient. and just waiting on new gopro mount for video.

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.
