hi all,

this is my second build. huge upgrade from my old zmr250 with naze32 board. so decided i needed an upgrade.

i choose the supafly flipmode cause it looks awesome with the skin. and not to forget, feels much better buying a frame from steve supafly instead of some cheap china clones. big up for this guy, steve is always available for all your questions wich is awesome!!!

on to the build. frame is pretty straightforward, nice carbon and everything goes together pretty easy. i thought the stickers would be a pain in the ass, but that went easy as well. everythings well made and quality is superb.

for the components i went for the dalrc stack with the f7 flightcontroller and rocket 50A 4 in 1 esc. motors are emax rsII 2306 2600kv. will be flying this on 4s batteries

so the biggest problem will be fitting the dalrc stack in the frame. have to be creative to make it fit...

the 4 in 1 esc is turned 180° so the battery wires come out in the front where the gap in the top plate is. the stack doesnt fit with regular grommets. so i cut some off it and try to use every 0.1mm space. problem with the stack is that the tpu connectors from both boards and the metal heat shield take lots of unnecesary space. as it is now, the bottom components from the fc are touching the metal heat shield, and even then i have to press the top plate down to make it fit.

so what i did was cut some carbon from the middle X shaped sandwich plate so the the tpu connector from the esc sinks a bit lower, gaining 1mm. sandwich everything together nice and tight.

i really enjoyed this build and im happy with the end result.

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.
