Today we will check out a new micro FPV racing drone called TransTEC Mini 142mm. Like its name says, it is build on a 142mm sized 3K carbon fiber frame. While it is a newly launched racing drone, it features an older generation F3 fight controller.
As far as the FPV system is concerned, the TransTEC Mini 142mm quadcopter comes with Caddx Turbo Micro F1 FPV camera and 5.8GHz/48CH video transmitter with adjustable broadcast power (25~200mW). Thanks to the SmartAudio feature, both channels and power can be changed through control button as well as remotely via remote controller.
The lifting power is generated by four powerful 4000KV brushless motors and Gemfan 3052 3-leaf propellers. The motors are driven by a 4-in-1 ESC (20A rated).
