hows the motors? i plan to get the same but i feel ilike theyre too overkill for my 3" freestyle quad (also 4s). Flight times on that 650mah? cant wait for a video :D

Motors are sweet! Flight time will depend on style (how aggressive your style is). The way I fly, I usually get around 4.5-5 minutes out of them

You added a mic? What for?

I like live audio of the motors while flying. Its more immersive, more fun, and actually when you're listening to the response of the motors to your stick movements it helps with throttle management (altitude control). I like to use external mic's for this as opposed to internal mic's on camera or VTX just because the external ones seem to work better (that's the only job the compoennt is responsible for). So, I'm always looking for VTXs which have an "audio input solder pad". There's a few of them. The one I'm using for this build has it and is also an 800 mW VTX. It all works good together. Don't know if you're familiar with live audio setup or not, however, if you're interested I've got a video on it entitled "MICRO FPV DRONE LIVE AUDIO SETUP" on my youtube channel. Happy Flying Friend!

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..
