I THINK MY ALIEN IS GETTING TIRED OF THIS
He's been in a total of three separate builds now. Originally, of course, he was in the Modulus 65 110X (remember that old thing?), then the Byte Size, and now, in the Byte Size V2, the new and improved Byte Size! Anyway, this AFNG Anubis16 is a trooper. It's taken it all without a single complaint, and it's probably the best FC I've ever owned. I guess that's what you get when you get a one-of-a-kind , handmade flight controller.

THE BUILD
So I've got to be honest, this really wasn't much of a build, more of a swap. At first, I used the included EOS2/Unify Nano mount instead of my ol' trusty WolfWhoop WT07, and it worked out okay, but it added a couple grams. This probably would've been fine except that I was too cheap to order some 1103s and stuck with my DYS 1102 10000kV, and they just barely fell short of the power I wanted, so I switched back to the AIO. However, the if you get some 1103 for this build, the EOS2/Unify combo is excellent and I highly recommend it.
Anyway, the build is fairly simple, especially since the stack is no longer structural like it was with the V1. This makes both assembly and maintenance much simpler.

Because it's annoying, that's why. I find this 2" formula to be super fun, and it doesn't force me to rely on sketchy AIO boards where one failure can take out two vital components of your quad. Maybe I'm just old school, but that doesn't sit well with me. Plus, I only sell things I can test, and since I have no interest in testing AIO builds, I couldn't sell a frame for them. 65mm 2S 110X is a formula we micro pilots have messed with for literally years, as in the first build I ever saw used heli tail motors (~1103) and 75mm props on an extremely rare micro brushless frame. So in any case, this isn;t new, and I think there's a reason it went into the past :)

Yes.... 2" is the best. You can live without a 5", but not without a micro.

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..
