What do you think of those Hawksky Motors? Are they high quality? Thinking about picking some up.

The second batch seem to be good - the first batch had a quality issue which they made good on

Very nice. What's the weight this?

What kind of flight time do you get on this?

It depends on how aggressive I am with the throttle and which props I'm using. If I'm flying very aggressively, 3 minutes on 1500mah 4s with the 6045x3, and maybe 4 minutes with 6040x2

But, I've flown/cruised upwards of 5-6 minutes on 4s 1500mah with 6040x2 and 6-8 minutes on 4s 2200mah with the 6045x3.

I think 5s 1800 would be the sweet spot. This baby comes alive on 5s

Oh damn, I thought you were asking about my Sköll build. Honestly, the 6" Æther is dead right now and needs to be rebuilt. I ran her hard for two weekends at the races - I never really did any long range / extended flights.

I'm guessing because of the stupid light weight, and 6"... you'd expect the flight times I posted above, plus a minute or two.

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..
