it's fast. it's cruising at about 20%
it might make many 5" freestyle quads flying like a toy :) kidding.
the build is simple.
just make it 50g or lighter. don't add 10g to it because i don't know how it would fly :)

the build:
-- look at the video and where i'm flying. that place if it was you, you want to fly a normal 3" or 5" quad right ?
-- but i don't want a normal 3" or 5" quad. i want some thing small, light and fast enough.

i'm happy to find this. it's small enough so i don't have to worry about killing anyone :)
it has enough power to climb over any tree quickly.
i'm content for now :)
one thing i don't like about the build. those tiny stupid props are so freaking loud :)
and it needs better vtx.

sometimes you'll see weird jerking movements, those are from the battery moving underneath the quad.

pid is ok, it's flyable. still need some tuning.
i suggest buying kingkong 1103 with 1mm shaft. drilling out the mounting holes is very hard :)

betaflight 4.0.3
frame is about 7g.
i used betaflight presets and change things a little. so credits to them.

can you use 100% throttle ? i don't know.
you can use less filters to help with propwash, but do it carefully. check motors temperature.

2s setting with kingkong 1103 7800kv. in case someone want to try it.

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..
