Mellow Fellow Whoop

I thought I'd transform my Yellow Mellow Fellow into an indoor and outdoor HD filming quad.
Becauce the frame is a stretched-X there is a little bit of props in view, in the conventional construction.
By assembling the motors facing downwards, I now have an unobstructed camera view.
Because of this mounting method and the prop guards, the prop size increased from 2,5" to 2,8".
I am still waiting for the Cadxx turtle to arrive, then this baby will be ready to rip and roll.
Footage will follow soon.

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.
