The Falcon Multirotors Bullshark is shipping now! Get yours for only $25!

Bullshark is one of the first 2.5" capable frames that supports the CCD RunCam Micro. With a 50° stretch-x layout and a proper camera, Bullshark is both small and capable, and managed to take 1st place at the MultiGP IO Micro track with Phreakin FPV at the controls.

This build was fun and came together really quick thanks to the XJB stack's simple wiring layout. I even managed to sandwich 3 programmable WS2812 LEDs into the build that line up with the snap/screw in shark fin.

lazd, loving the looks of the bullshark. I have been looking for the ultimate lightweight frame to run some Rotorx 1107's with a Hglrc 428 stack or a zeus on gemfan 2540's. Do you think this combo will work with the bullshark?

Hey doc, we went with 2" for the production Bullsharks since there were no compelling 2.5" props at the time. I can cut you a 2.5" Bullshark if you like, and we could go with 25mm standoffs so the HGLRC stack fits with the VTX with room to spare. WDYT?

Thanks for the reply Lazd. I have been following all the falcon stuff and it all looks sweet. the bullshark with 2.5 or 3in would be compelling. I think i'm getting away from the 2in micros and like some superlight 2.5- 3in builds. I've got a 3in with 1304's that comes in at 90g AUW and is currently my fav micro.

So are you looking to run 1304s on 1107s? I will whip a 2.5" Bullshark up for you.

If you're thinking about 3" for racing, the Featherlight 3 may be a good option, as it has replaceable arms. Any thoughts on that frame? I can also do a 3" Bullshark if you prefer to try that, but we may have to up carbon thickness to 3mm (as we did on Splitshark after crash testing)

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.
