My iFlight Megabee build.

This is my first cinewhoop style quad and I really like how the build came together. The fact that everything is attached to the bottom plate makes this so easy to build and maintain.

So far I have only flown around a dozen of batteries with it but I already like how it feels to handle. Getting used to the slooow flying will take some time though, I often notice that I'm flying way too fast for this kind of quad.

Also, even slightest breeze will have big impact on this thing.

Custom gopro mount I made fro this can be found here.

I'm not 100% happy with the way I mounted the cap with but that'll do for now, there wasn't a lot of choices where to put it since back of the frame is really tight with vtx and rx stuff.

For antennas I decided to use full lenght antenna tubes and long ass pagoda. I don't think there's really need to worry about their durability on a quad like this.

My last concern are the ducts provided with this frame. they seem very flimsy and fragile and someone on instagram already reached out to me about them and told me that Shendrones squirt V1 ducts should be compatible with this one too, that's something I need to find out later.

haha This build is almost identical to my squirt V2 build almost to a part. Ive got 8 extra HGLRC motors because in my opinion they are the greatest 1407's ever made... I am going with a unify VTX though, but other than that its the same. I have mamba stacks in probably 5 builds now and I love them, only one DOA and one faulty 5v reg that i managed to fix with a new surface mount transistor. Got me thinking about the MegaBee frame now though because i fly the Iflight Vector and its my favourite freestyle frame. What made you go with the Iflight instead of the Shendrone?

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. 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..
