I wanted the trashcan but didn't want to wait super long on preorder like what happened with the Mobula so I ordered all the replacement parts and they arrived before most people got their preorders I think.. I also had the crazybee F4 pro but I'm not too great at soldering and now it has a lifted power pad.. so it's the F3 board for now.  (Update: My friend was able to fix the LiftedF4 it's now in a 1103 75mm build) (Update: Broke that frame and camera so put that board in a 2 inch build) (Update: Lost the 2 inch it's in a tree or brush but I can't find it)
I heard that the trashcan uses the 16:9 camera and it doesn't have as much vertical field of view as the 4:3 camera so that's what I got.

Broke the canopy on the first flight first crash and it didn't even seem like that hard a hit. I'll glue it back together maybe securing it better to get rid of the jello hopefully

How was the "lifted power pad" repaired? I am facing the same problem. is there any other pin where I can connect by battery to?

used same place he basically just scratched away at the board until he see copper near that pad like going away from it then flux and solder.. looked messy but worked perfectly

I think my canopy made it to the 3rd pack before it broke...Ha,ha. I ended up printing a new one in TPU and haven't looked back.

Another reason why I need to get a 3d printer. Was going to order another canopy but I'm sure I'll be crashing that one too... I like the adjustable angle but I'd rather have something tougher. Did it help with the jello?

The TPU does help with Jello, and you are still able to adjust the cam angle with all the prints I've seen. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3374386

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.
