I wanted to make 10 minutes+ long range slow flyer. I'm going to get 2s3p 18650 packs for it.
381g w/o battery. Looks 281mm frame could take 7 inch props and not hit the base.

Edit: I've got mentioned custom battery and it flies beautefully with 2:1 weight ratio, 6535 props. 15minutes of actual flying. I crashed (light, nothing happened) and I think it was low voltage ~7V (3,5 per cell) and, so either FC doesn't supply power to 5v of RX or one of the ESCs shut down. Looks like I'll try connect 2 such batteries in one 4s3p. Blackbox was full...

I haven't seen anyone try this on a multirotor. I have seen it on single prop decent/high effeciency rc planes. Typically the accepted wisdom is tat the amp draw on a multirotor is too high for lythium ion, but I would love to see what you get out of it. I would imagine a lower kv motor would serve you much better in this endavor, but I still hope it works for you. Please post a vid when you can, I have toyed with the idea of doing this but got discouraged after researching, i'm glad you're doing it!!

Still running those 6" CF 2 blade props?

T-motor 6535 props, sometimes KingKong 6040. At the moment I fly 6inch front and 6.5inch back to have equal thrust on fron and rear - experimenting - looks like less vibration.

Very nice. How's it fly?

Bad weather, my first build process and debugging stopped me to try the range, real flight time and characteristics. I did a few LOS flights, blackbox shows me very clean build. Surprised how much power it has on 3s as I only flown toys 2s till now. IDK really, need more experience and FPV flight to tell. It flies :)

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. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
