Upgraded my original twiglet build that used an old betaFPV Z01 camera/vtx to a runcam racer nano and a 3d printed canopy from tacoRC.

I absolutely loved my original build and recently busted the motor shafts on the two front motors, and some how destroyed the fc. So just decided to go all in and build it exactly how I wanted it.

UPDATE: 5v regulator was doa, so the fc wont power via anything higher than 5v. Replacement will be here in a few days. May use the new 2-3s aio from betafpv that i was planning on using for another build.

Link to original build: Twiglet AKA Groot

used the 2-3s aio and flew it, it was hands down the best flying thing Ive built yet, right up until I center punched a metal pole. Thought i toasted the cam and bought a replacement, but its fine! The front cross bar took almost all the blow. Just lost a prop/ motor shaft that tore up some motor wires. Fixing it all now. Should be flying tommorow.

More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..

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..
