hmmm doesnt it get too jelly? is petg better? which between petg and tpu would you prefer?

98 or even 95 TPU isn't jelly, it's just flexible enough not to be brittle like PLA or even PETG

Also should i still put tpu spacers under the motors? does that have any effect at this size?

I think that there is no need to add tpu spacers under that motors. for current setup, my toothpick get no vibration at all.

glad to hear! i didnt want to waste some tpu for something i wont use. Thanks!

could you please upload more pics of your mounting and of the vtx? I‘m building the same and don‘t know how to play with the various screws :)
thanks!

I just put the vtx on the fc.

Nikotttin   May 18, 2019 

thanks very much!
In the pack, I also received some M2 white spacers. did you use these between the FC and the frame or did you simply use the long screw and some rubber gromets?

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.

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.
