Hats off to Armattan Pro. for re-sending this thing twice at no extra cost to me. (post office failed to notify me 2x)

Just a oneoff design, playing around with the concept of a vertical+horizontal arm members.

16mm stack space, which is enough these days for stacks like this, but no, I just transplanted some old parts and had to fit the VTX on top.

Like the re-purposed Emax foam on the arms? ...need to 3d print some.

Anyway, not the prettiest thing but Blackbox logs look amazingly vibe-free and it flies good.

Thanks. Not too light. Didn't measure it, but 85 grams of carbon (per CAD model) and I'd guess 100 grams with screws and standoffs.

Yep, 180d. Those plates were most of the cost, so unfortunately not an idea I'd do again.

Vertical arm frames are tough to get right! Nice custom work man. Looks like a tough beast.

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..
