I recomend to keep motor cables attached to the frame, in case of prop strike. You can just apply some glue in between heat shrink and frame.

Love the motor/prop combo!

those are gemfan props, it is just a clean prop with print on it from the bottom, nothing good for balance and weight, and from the bottom the proplooks white

Did you apply some kind of white fluid around the white plugs on the FC? Looks almost like glue.

Comes on the Hobbywing Xrotor, almost like a silicone...

Great photos! I'd work on your soldering though. Do you have a flux pen? Those work great to help the solder flow over the wire. I also feel like you don't have quite enough solder on your pads before you add the wire.

I definetly need to work on my soldering, I have an old board I need to practice with. My Iron isnt the best. Dont have a flux pen ill look into it. Appreciate the feedback.

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.
