Could you please tell me the weight and flight time?

JakubFPV   Mar 23, 2018 

AUW is 62g, and flight time is ~5:40 on full throttle

Looks pretty good! Good work.

Hi, could you post a picture of how you attached the cloverleaf to the VTX03? Also how well does this fly maneuverability-wise?

JakubFPV   Jan 25, 2018 

Hi, it has an u.fl connector so that's how you attach it, then I secured it with a little hot glue.
Its pretty bad maneuverability-wise to be honest, since it's low T:W ratio

I'm so confused as to what makes this a long range quad VS anything else? Just the fact that you're using an XM+? I'd be afraid of flying something this small very far. I lose mine 50 feet in front of me.

I think that the 5+ min on full throttle flighttime makes it long range :)
And the XM+ can go probably 2+km easily
and the 200mw vtx compared to standard 25mw on similiar builds

Fair enough. I think long range is relative. Considering this is such a small craft "long range" is relative.

Exactly :)

Very cool but I bet you could do 2km with a real battery instead of that zop crap. When zop says 850mah what they really mean is 500mah but the weight and size of an 850mah battery

Thanks for the suggestion, I think you are right. If I try a longer distance I will get a better lipo for sure.

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..
