This build just about emptied my wallet - I even had to sell my transmitter to fund it! (currently looking for a cheaper replacement to get back in the air) But I love to build, probably more than flying and I'm more than happy with how this one turned out.

I wasn't happy with the 3D printables I could find online so I made my own - on thingiverse now: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3712955

The biggest challenge was mounting the Tarsier which uses M2 mounting. I used long M2 bolts with some M2 brass grommets to make them sit nicely in the M3 holes.

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.
