No, THIS is a racing drone.

You think your racer is cool looking? Good for you.
You've got an efficient long range 5" setup? Cute.
You don't think 2300kv can be fast? Think again.

Facetiousness aside, I know this build log sucks, it needs more pictures, and to be properly documented. With that said, oh my dear lord is this good. I won't be giving out many details of this little beastie.... I haven't... asked the designer of the prototype, per se, but I'm sure he'll be alright with it... probably. Who knows!

Aaaaanywho, have a looksie at this youtube compressed DVR and keep in mind this is the maiden voyage of the ship, and the lipo is only 4s 1300mah, flying for six minutes.


PS: The frame is not strictly the ARX R as listed, but is a working prototype.

how good is this frame for long range? would it be good for a light and fast quad that could carry a gopro with the right mount?

I haven't gotten to use it for long range as of yet since I unfortunately don't have XRSF or R9. However I was getting 6 minutes of hard acro on a 1500mah 4S pack with APC 6x4.2x3 props. I'm keeping an eye out on a used R9 sytem to try it long range. And the developer has though about making a go pro mount, but its not a priority at the moment.

A slight update to thr log. The frame which is strictly the ARX-R V2 is now available on https://quadstardrones.com/. go check it out if you want one. This frame is truly an experience to build.

Yea, theyre probably not so necessary on this frame since it's meant for racing and not absolute top speed, but I'd never done it before and wanted to give it a shot.

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..
