I don't think you need XT30 with 080x motors. It's just extra weight. Unless you already have it on the battery.
I have to admit I got this frame. Have the motors had longer wires I would have built on it. I thought I could route the wires along the catbon. But they were too short and I just couldn't make myself build with the wires hanging in the air. That never lasts. Dmitry has since designed a new conversion frame with arms going straight to the center, diagonally.
Hovering at 10% throttle is simply amazing but these things are strange. I think KababFPV suggests limiting the throttle at 70% or 75% and based on the one I have built it's about right. It's just doing nothing above that limit.

With the XT30 battery and the KababFPV tune and a 70% throttle limit it is so much better. you are right about running the wires in the air.. my most recent crash ripped the wires off the motor side :(

Sorry about the crash. Strangely, KababFPV's tune didn't work for me at all. It was SOOO hyperactive. I am almost on the default PIDs that are far off his tune.

oOooOO interesting how the fc is at the bottom. Does that give any benefit?

Not really just that I couldn't get the motor wires to reach any other way

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..
