Smashed my first build into a frozen lake and shattered damn near everything... will rebuild, but until then I had another build planned so I just decided to build a new one then go back and rebuild the original. Had the props from the old build, and the Transmitter, probalby gonna upgrade to the Dark Knight eventually, love the look of that one, but this works fine so far. Probably gonna make the switch when I build something with crossfire.

I do plan on moving the Camera forward, I'm building a DLP 3d printer, so once I get that done I'll print it a new mount, but for now it works.

Also Conformal Coated everything to make sure if I crash in the snow it'll probably be ok, on that subject if you dump the bottle over on a surface you don't want conformal coating on, like a countertop, Isopropyl alcohol is your friend, liberally apply and scrub with paper towl will get it right up.

PS: I know I need to work on my Soldering skills, the ESC joints are ugly AF, but they work, and cleaning them up now is more trouble than it's worth. Shouldn't short as they are conformal coated so I'm not concerned at all, might cover the ESCs still though, not sure since they have LEDs on them though.

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..
