It's just a 3d printed prototype yet, but I still wanted to share it!
It's going to be a 3" monster, based on a 16x16 stack (yes, I know the strongest one available is 12 amps, I'm waiting for a stronger one)
I calculated the weight to be around 200g with a 650mAh 4s lipo.

It features the runcam racer nano cam (thx runcam for sponsoring btw!)

Maybe, but first I'll build it myself and test it 😁

Nice one! I'm also trying to design larger frames for a 12x 12 stack, The footprint is insane! Also, that canopy is gorgeous

Thank you 😁 Do you mean a 16x16 stack or is there really already a 12x12 stack? That would be crazy small!

IcarusIX   May 17, 2019 

haha yeah a 16x16 stack my bad lol

Fishpepper actually did come up with a 12x12 stack at some point I believe.

I dont think well ever see a 16x16 stack that has more than 12a.

Since I am designing my own frames it's no problem at all to design a 26x26 frame. But that's huge! I want it to be small. And btw, the old SimonK where also packed. It's the components that get smaller. Think of CPUs and how small the transistors got...

It would sure be nice dont get me wrong lol. Id like at least a 15a one thatd open up so many possibilities. I wish there was more effort put into 16x16 frame design also. This frame looks amazing and is probably one of the only ones ive seen that lets you protect the camera under a canopy as opposed to leaving it totally exposed.

FGR FPV   May 22, 2019 

Yes, 15A would for sure be very nice.
I'll try the 12A one, I'll post updates here 😁

12 amps should be enough for 1306 size motors, or are you going with something crazy?

I'd go for some Emax 1306

Btw since Bob Roogi is working on a superlight 3" too I'm kind of following his recommendations at the moment.
He suggests motors in the 10g range. He specifically mentioned 1404 and 1304.
But the EMAX 1306 is the the ball park too with quite exactly 10g.

Let's hope I'll proof you wrong, because I've already ordered the 12A stack 😁

This is really neat! Great work

Thank you!

that frame look soooo good, great work

Thank you 😁 If you like this one, check out the "real" Transcend too :D

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..
