This build is very advanced and was a HUGE challenge to get everything to fit in that tiny little deck, if you aren't an experienced builder buy the regular non slammed version of this frame :)

Update: I had to re route all of the wires to be under the flight controller to accommodate my battery strap

I have some 2408.5's on an LR, and I am guessing on a 5" they make for just about the most powerful thing you'll ever fly. They lift a Ti LR + Session and all the fixins like nothing. I was wondering where you went for your KV choice (because you are using 4S). I looked at all your pics, but it's always just outta view (Hey! I know it ends in "22"... lol). I, of course, went the lowest (1622), what did you select for this one? I am guessing not 1622. Thanks for sharing!

I'm flying the 2722 2207's on an ARX-R. I like them quite a bit. I'd love to sample PD's entire line... even the 1106's and 1103's.

Looks awesome. I admire you for going with the 4-in-1 ESC. I'm building one now and didn't even consider it. This thing is low. I designed a little spacer to take up the gap in the back of the GoPro mount on the slammed frame. Looks much better than having to crush the back of the mount down. Happy flying!

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..
