Mid Range Reverb

This build started as a 5", then I realized I had some crazy motors laying unused that would be perfect for a 6" build on 6s. I added a gps because why not, and its running crossfire with diversity allowing me to rip long distances quickly without worry. I had the Kiss v2 FC before the frame because I wanted to try Kiss again after not having flown anything Kiss in about 3 years. Naturally the Alien or Reverb was a perfect fit for this FC with the available PDB options. This is the most powerful thing I have ever flown by a significant margin. Still working on the tune but it is smooth and maybe a little too powerful! Might try some 5s.

It took me a long time to get happy with the layout of components and TPU mounts. I must have printed 18 different things for this just to try. However, I feel that the final iteration will be solid, functional, and visually pleasing.

Oh snap! I almost posted a new build stating that I had "the first 2208.5 Hyperlites on RB" (which like last time I said something like that... I was wrong). I do not have my electronics for that build yet and so I cannot make that claim. I got the 1722 KV's because I know that even at 5S I will be cresting the RPM limit of the APC 6060's I plan to use with mine. So I have a Q: what are they like? Are they just as insanely powerful as one might think? Here is a pic of the quad I am building with the 1722's.

Insanely powerful for sure. these are also actually your 1722 but the site only populated the slightly higher versions. Lots of pull in higher rpm ranges. I thought the narrow stator would give me some smoothness due to lack of torque but there isn't a lack of anything. I still need to try 5s which I think will be great for flying in less than hugely wide open spaces.

that thing looks nuts by the way

Yeah... I just really love the Hyperlite series. They are something special. I just built a super lite rig with the 2204's and had them just basically hovering the quad (not what those are for), and they came down so hot I never thought they'd fly again. Nope... didn't bother them one bit. Now that I have the configuration corrected that rig flies like a bird. PyroDrone are made better than other motors.

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..
