BandoSlayer 2
This is the third build in a series covering the frames from Detroit Multirotor. This frame, BandoSlayer 2, is an update to a very successful freestyle frame we introduced last year. I haven't quite finished this, but it's close enough to post. Still need to test motors and then appy heat to the shrink wrap on the ESCs. The upgrades to the frame include using Toray carbon Fiber throughout except for the non-conductive locking plate and it's a little longer, giving ample room for bigger batteries. I'm using the Joshua Bardwell board and I'm anxious to see how it flies. It did create one unforseen issue that I had to work around. No big deal though. I've posted a ton of pics that go through every step of the build. Hope you enjoy and thanks for viewing. Comments are welcome and appreciated. By the way, the first shipment of these under $70 frames sold out in a couple of days. Next shipment is due the week of March 10, so If you want to pre-order, hit us up at https://www.detroitmultirotor.com/collections/frames/products/the-bando-slayer-2

The Bardwell Board had a gizmo (that's the technical term) on the bottom that created a clearance issue with the center cinch nut. It was easily solved with some small washers from the motor hardware.

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..

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..
