New build in the brand new Diatone Innovations GT X549 Exorcist racing frame. The goal for this build was to have a strong, lightweight 6s racer with top of the line equipment, no compromises. I think the parts were matched perfectly for this build and so far it has been flying amazing!

Awesome frame!

I have your lead shot as my phone lock screen.

I wanted to know what the intent was with the frame design. Was it to bring the props towards the center of the body so that you have a better balance between all axis?

PLUS being a tank against crashes?

I'm taking this as a personal compliment and not in regards to the build whatsoever ;)

That frame is one of the most beatifful ever made IMO. Although probably not practical enough to be used in competion by amateur pilots.

What kind of tape is that on the motor wires

what a nice frame, but, ehm :) not so nice build i mean cable management should be nicer.

It's mostly because the motor wires are gray and adding sleeving would just be adding uneeded weight. I routed them this way to keep distance from the props ;)

It's a pretty frame viewed in isolation but I'd never thought about the cable management when built, shape does make it a little more awkward to get it clean looking! Still, looks like a great build, how's the stiffness compared to a conventional flat carbon rig?

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.
