I saw some photos of the Sanchez floating around social media, so I went and nabbed the files from Thingiverse and decided to give it a build since I had almost everything I needed on hand. Build came together pretty well! It's amazing how good these tiny things have gotten. I cut the frame from 3mm rather than 2mm, since I intended this to be a 4S build instead of 3S like it was intended. Frame came out only 3g heavier than 2mm, so it worked out pretty well. I custom cut an adapter plate from 0.8mm G10 as well to fit my 20x20 camera mount on it. Little bugger is super light for a 4S build. only 140g with a 4S 650mAh and gets over 7 minutes of flight time easy to 3.7v per cell resting. I ordered some 450mAh packs to lighten it up even further and should still have plenty of flight time. I even tried flying it on an 850mAh and got 12 minutes + of flight time, just felt like a brick. Can't wait to see how it rips on the lighter packs. Also got some 3025 Gemfan props on the way, which should be an improvement over these super fragile 3020T I had laying around. Overall though, this is the most fun I've had flying in quite a while! Being able to fly anywhere is awesome, and it doesn't seem to sacrifice the handling to the degree of previous generations of smaller drones. Super fun build!

Here's a quick pack testing it on the 650mAh 4S pack:

Might I suggest some HQ 3x4x3 V1S? They have that typical great HQ V1S feel.

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..
