it was a flight controller that I thought was dead.. (lifted pad that my friend fixed) the motors had broken shafts so I couldn't use them on the build/props I was wanting. the camera was one taken from a broken whoop and the canopy was still broken..
it was like an abandoned parts build but it turned out to be my favorite and the best performing flyer I've had. the flight times weren't great never over 3 minutes... but it ripped... 2 inch and nimble and quick and very controllable. it's gone now I think the vtx or antenna or maybe i had my goggles on the wrong channel but I lost video then crashed then telemetry lost I guess the battery disconnected... I searched the area I think it's in but haven't found it yet.
it was super fun and exhilarating and it was the best thing ever for learning acro...

(no link for the motors anymore they were 10,000 kv 1103 crazepony motors from amazon.. (I had a 70% throttle curve limit)
not sure why the osd flashes but I was running the vtx/cam off of a 5v bec to save the fc from that work and I think I should have connected the ground from the vtx to the fc as well.. can't try it now unless I find it maybe...

Did you have any issue with the camera pod being loose? I can't seem to get the 2 sides to fit tightly on the bottom cam plate

this one fit snug but I had this frame again and I had to use a zip tie around the whole top part on that one to keep it tight like the parts were a little too loose

Badass! I gotta have that! By the way, did you have any issues with jello? It was difficult to tell in the video. Thank you for sharing.

I didn't notice any jello but I wouldn't recommend that camera i just don't like it and yes the whoop it was on before was jelloy... if I build this one again which I probably will. I'd change the camera..

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.
