Honey Badger

I started ordering parts to upgrade my old quad.... then this happened.

I want my battery top mounted I thought to myself. That's where it began. The frame came first then I started seeing problems fitting the old hardware to this new and far superior frame... so I ordered a 4-in-1 ESC. "Oooooh" I thought to myself, "6S, 45amp all tucked away under the hood, hmmmm this could be something goddamn sexy!". That was the point of no return, the event horizon that lead my down the 6S path. Honey Badger was born!

Yeah, you've been there, you know what I'm talking about.

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.
