this was one of my proudest builds and was partly a easter gift (motors) and had three f3 flight controller till today. it's now equipped with an omnibus f4 pro and other lovely components. it was kind of frustrating to get the power distribution board connected to the flight controller with it's built-in current and voltage monitor.

I've moved the rx input from UART1 to UART3 to connect my runcam camera control to UART1. You might think: wait! Foxeer fpv camera and runcam camera control? Yes, it's working fine, like on runcams! I've not connected the GND wire to OSD, just the OSD wire.

What's left to say: I've modded the receiver antennas with better ones (recommended in the rcgroups)

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.
