I initially wanted a 3" ultralight LR build, but due to the limitations of the FC (not enough UARTS), it will remain a micro freestyle quad for now.I wanted a 3" toothpick, and this frame was an obvious choice. A not-so-easy build, due to the 16x16 stack size, and the creativity involved to stuff everything under the pod. I wouldn't recommend ths build to beginners.

Some issues with this build:
USB port won't be easily accessible since the standoffs are in the way.
FC can only support SBUS for Crossfire, meaning that you will lose all telemetry control for LUA Scripts. RSSI/LQ is still available though.
VTX will get really, really hot.

Now to tune it out and make it fly like a mini quad. Purposely chose the parts to actually add some weight to the build, which means this is 160g AUW with 4s 450mah. The intention is that the weight adds a bit more hangtime, to almost 5"-like qualities. Loving it.

If you have a Tbs Nano 32 you can run the smart audio to Channel 4 on the xfire nano. That frees up TX2 and then you can reassign PPM to RX2. I'm doing a similar build but haven't tested it yet. I also could be completely wrong as this is my first build but this is my theory/understanding for what its worth.

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..
