Anyone still interested in tinyhawk mods? Wanna try one that actually makes a difference instead of just wasting more power?

Here ya go.

Get an X-acto knife and 1.5-2mm carbon, lose 6g. You gain ALOT of speed (I can easily pace cars going ~30-35mph). The increase in speed is audible. And if you don't fly like a bat out of hell you'll even pick up another 30-45s flight time.

I'll have DVR in a couple days when I've got time.

Do you have some DVR? i'd like to see, thanks! looks like an awsome mod to do.

I would. If EMAX hadn't sent me replacement board with a defective voltage regulator. It was a great mod, required surprisingly minimal re-tuning. But I'll be selling off what I still have in TH parts and building a Toothpick soon. Heck, you can just buy the frame a some carbon parts from me if you want XD I won't be needing them.

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.
