This is my own frame/canopy design, cf was cut by Armattan Productions, tpu is sainsmart.

The frame is a slightly stretched X 230mm, arms are 6x10mm, base plate is 6mm.

I don't like the random consequences of arm breaks, so on this design the arm bolts are the weak point, one of the two 12.9 tensile bolts generally breaks and the arm is designed to swing round harmlessly without pulling on the motor wires or esc pads.

Could save 10g by using 5mm cf and at least 10g on the tpu, but I am more interested in durability than weight these days.

65°, a bit much maybe.

A fixed angle has been good for durability (can't remember the last time I broke a camera).

But if I want a different angle I have to print a new pod.

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.
