Introduction

This is 2nd build for freestyle frame which is called TransTEC Freedom V2 (5inch). According to the TracsTEC Spec. the upper shell is made by CNC 7075 Aviation Aluminium-alloy. The point of attraction is the arms thinkness which is 6 mm. It looks super soild.

Goal and Parts Selection

Recently, i have experienced bad flying with not enough strong statement. For example, the screw or nut or some parts(broken and cracked plate, arm) could generate some jello or vibration or noise. The goal of this quad was to build , a frame must be strong enough in machanical properties like as a frame of racing car.

Frame & Build Tip

All parts are not finished the edge of carbon by some poymer material. The edge has not cutted so i finished by my hand with sand paper.
The arm thickness is over 6mm. Actually, two of them are 6 mm and the other two of them are 6.2mm. I used 6.2mm arm for front arm. bottum plate is 3 mm. it super strong enough with arm. The screws are something is supplied 10.9 and 12.9 class. it's looking good. The space is not enough for parts so i recommed to use single ESC. but i haven't got the single ESC. I just used 4 in 1 ESC. My HD cam is Yi 4K and i desinged HD cam mount for Yi 4k which is fixed with 30 mm screw at the front rear is hold the cable tie.

Flight Test

I've tested all of default setting with butterflight firmware i haven't changed PID and filtering. It's super smooth and flying like a clean now. In the future, i'd like to record flight video wwith this quad. i really expected.

AUW(all-up weight) is 705 g with battery, propeller and action cam.

I'm going to record the drift car chasing video with this drone and the other one which is Puda D240 frame. It's also great frame.

Oh my god this is beautiful! Well done!
I'm super impressed with the TransTec frames. They are nearly indestructable and fly really good!

6mm Carbon!!! I've got a TransTec Frog and its indestructible. But this thing takes it to the next level.
Love the build.

Yes, it is. I tseted it shortly today. No need too much filteration so that it flight performance is response than bad condition frame. Recently, i really interested in machanical property of frame. thanks for replying and giving like button! Have a good day!

What a sexy frame! I have looked at that one on banggood for weeks now, it looks like a great design. I like your layout, and i'm impressed with your antenna mod, how is it performing?
Great build!

Thank you for your compliment! The flight is soo much smooth and easy to control. It could be my main quad after finishing setting(PID and filteration). This frame feels like strength of mechanical. i have tried to bend the the end of arm to the other arm but it can not be bent. super super strong enough. Disadvantage is limited space of parts so i highly recommend to use individual ESC.

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..
