The Real Toothpick 🤺

Finally, today I have had it in my hands - Toothpick by KababFpv!

So far, it's the nicest whoop conversion frame I have seen. The carbon is very pleasant to touch, love the satin finish. It is very easy to mount parts though I still had to print a set of standoffs to mount the FC and canopy. As with my other conversions, I still can't access the USB port. The weight is only 35g without the battery. For whatever reason, the real toothpick feels more stable in the air than the lil duece build. Overall, I absolutely love these tiny things, they fly amazingly for their size! Thank you, KababFPV!

Since the top 1/4 of the throttle range is kind of useless with these drones you may want to limit the throttle. To do that, you can use the following CLI commands

set throttle_limit_type = scale
set throttle_limit_percent = 75
save

This one uses camera/vtx that came with eachine US65 whoop. In my latest toothpick I use Eos2 and Unify Nano Pro32.

Nice build, I bet it's a blast! Where did you get the TPU standoffs? Are they on Thingiverse so I can print some?

nice build. I like how u got the fc mounted down. I have been telling a few people u don't need to flip it then u don't need to remap the motors.love the canopy I have the red snapper 6 canopy for a up coming build. How do u like those flex rc motors? They have some nice frames to.

Thanks! I hate remapping. Also maybe the TPU standoffs dump some vibrations. I am a huge fan of FlexRC stuff (just look at my builds) including these motors. They are wonderful on 1S, high quality too.

I honestly liked if the frame used 16x16 only and came with the 16x16 to 26x26 adapter you made. It just felt like extra dampening and it looked cool!

It will come. It's a new thing and the guy is a dentist. A lot of people may rely on him for living toothache-free lives. 😷 😉

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.
