This quad is a test of how small, light motors perform on a very low weight 5" quad. The motors are Brotherhobby T2 1608s in 3200kv. I got them for half price during a clearance sale and that's what inspired me to build an ultralight 5". The motors weigh 22 grams each with very long wires, so I thought I could get the weight of the quad under 225g. I designed my own frame for this quad as I couldn't find any frames that I liked that would mount the motors and fit 5" props. The frame was cut by CNC Madness and it cost only $32.

The succex mini f4 stack has performed very well so far and it made it very simple to build this quad. The only soldering I had to do was for the motors, battery lead, camera, and receiver.

Dry weight of the quad is 203 grams. The frame itself weighs 60 grams. AUW with an RDQ 1300mah 4s is 387g.

frame looks dope. perfomance looks pretty good. how's efficiency?

Efficiency is pretty decent. It gets about the same amount of flight time as my heavy setup, but it's faster and is more responsive. Flying fast and going full throttle I can drain a 1300mah 4s in 2 minutes. If I fly normally it can go 3-4 minutes.

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..
