What was their total thrust to weight ratio?

MrRed   May 20, 2018  

A150-10 motors are rated for 20lbs on the Hacker website. Even with 6, there's no way they could lift that much weight, right? Am I missing something? A200-8 seem more likely with 44lbs quad lift.

Maybe a paper-loop or toilet-roll?

Thanks for suggestions but I finished mapping out the naming. The core constituents will be a powerloop and powerpoop. Then depending on the consistency at the time of execution, it could then be labelled a tootsie-roll or a swirled pudding plop. If it's fluffy, it will be a pastrami mommy. Don't ask, I don't understand that one either.

A guy like me would rather have a toilet, see what it feels like to be a sea gull. Look out below and rock on!

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..
