Another Toothpick inspired Build

This build was inspired by Kababfpv and his toothpick.
I just couldn't wait for his frame to be available - once it arrives I will just have to build another quad!
I stole quite a few ideas from this build as well:
Thanks @sergetania!

The parts are a complete transplant of my Beta75x.
Since 2S is too much for indoor flying, at least for a beginner like me, it was my park-flyer anyways.
So why not make it more awesome?!

I redesigned the adatper to suit my needs.
It needed to be high to fit the stack of the Beta75x and I wanted to be able to reach the usb port on the bottom without taking the quad apart ervery time.
Then I threw in an antenna holder for good measure!
The adapter and the bumpers are PETG. Let's see how well those hold up.
Wire extension were so annoying, but I really wanted to keep using those motors.

Takeoff weight of the quad is 69 grams.

Maiden flight will be tomorrow.

Nice build! It's quite a huge toothpick! Hopefully, extra weight is not enough to break things crashing.
Are you actually able to plug in a USB cable when assembled? I gave up on that because of the Lil duece frame.

I hope so too!
With the cut-out I added at the back of the mount I can reach the USB. Maybe I will upload the new adapter, if you are interested .

About the weight, I run 2S so performance-wise it shouldn't be too much of an issue :D

I wouldn't be concerned about the performance but breaking things. Extra weight does that. Should be fine

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..
