Hi folks! I've had a couple people ask me for TinyWhoop recommendations and I'd like to put out the build list so I can potentially save somebody a little money.
Usually, people go out and buy an FPV inductrix and fly it until they break stuff or want to upgrade - or both. So, you pay 60-200 bucks for the BNF or RTF versions of that thing, then realize you may want a betaflight powered flight controller, faster motors, etc....
The best way, in my opinion, is to start with what you want from the beginning. Buy the parts, put it together... Assembly isn't even CLOSE to the same as a full size copter. You have to make TWO solder connections and pop in a couple motors... In the end, you have a flawlessly flying tinywhoop with fairly bad ass motors.
The BeeBrain v.1 - Cleanflight/Betaflight compatible Flight Control fo
(pick the version that matches the radio you want.... ie, Spektrum or FrSky)
The FX805 Clove Leaf Pod Camera - Micro FPV Camera with 5.8G 25mW 40CH
Inductrix Crazypony Frame with Red Prop Set and Foam Battery Converter – Kado's Micro Motors
Chaoli (Kados Insane) 65000rpm 6x15mm Inductrix/Nano QX style micro-js – Kado's Micro Motors
210mah Power Pack (6 Batteries Plus a 12 Port Parallel Board) – Kado's Micro Motors
(These batteries are pretty dang good!)
The ONLY change I would make is the frame/props from this list... but, that said, the Inductrix frames and props are like unicorns...If you see them in stock, grab them! They are, in my opinion, superior to the eachine versions listed above and are slightly lighter I believe. Otherwise, the link above is a perfectly acceptable thing to use in the meantime.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please comment below! Let this be a living document of the best entry whoop build options.
