Multiwiicopter Scarab Avatar twin vector carbon TriCopter. Twin servos operate the front booms for yaw in contrast to most Tricopters which operate a single servo on the rear boom. My favourite looking Multirotor, a real showpiece. The components might be a bit old hat by comparison to the latest stuff out there now but this is still a smooth flying very unique frame. This is NOT the GPS model, it is purely Acro on Multiwii 2.3

Wow, that's quite a frame. Is this just for LOS?

For me? Yes.

It's not a rapid flyer like a smaller racer, it's a larger cruiser and I fly it line of sight, but many people buy it as an FPV machine also. For me personally, I prefer to LOS it, I don't fly it too much as I am scared to crash it as an accident with it is a bit like having an accident with a Heli, you end up destroying the servo gears and money is a bit tight lately and I hate having something broken. The main thing for me when flying it is just what a stunning machine it is in the air, it just looks amazing, in FPV, it would just end up being a larger more docile sort of quad, where the main attraction from my point of view is how stunning and different it is visually and seeing it fly around. It's named after the gyros in the Avatar movie, but it reminds me more of something in terminator.

Not me, but something another guy did with his, custom foam canopy;

If you follow the link in the frame parts, you'll see it's sold as an FPV machine,

It's certainly something to look at, but I can see what you mean. I'd be afraid to crash it.

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. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
