Rebuilt the Gecko! I shaved down the Ori32 so it fits in the orientation best for the BAT leads. The Ori is a perfect match in terms of the connecter. No reording the wires which is nice.

Using betaflight 32/32 Multishot with 32 Khz PWM frequency

Check the second pic in the look to watch it fly with the GoPro with the old setup. That was on a 3s 850Mah so now I have 4s and will give it another shot with the new setup.:

Nice work! Do you have any video with the Hero 7 Black? I'm shocked (happily) that a Gecko can carry such a huge camera.

Thanks!

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..
