A light 3" cruiser I made in order to have maximal flight time with 2S li-ion 18650 VTC6 battery.
Turn out it's also pretty fun to fly with any 2S lipo too, light and has thrust.

I had to mount the FC upside down, took motor connectors off and had to cut canopy to access usb port.

3D-printable 20x20 stack to whoop board adapter I made for this frame: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3785413

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..
