Building another 7mm Whoop that will stun and amaze.

Using an Eachine E010 spaceship canopy to hide the internals this will be a "Sleeper" with a low profile camera position. I also plan to use Mockingbird's Throttle mix and Butterflight. MockingButtered.

3/23/18 - I hovered this build without FPV to start breaking in the motors. It looks like these Crazepony motors come with 1.0mm shafts on a 7mm x 16mm motor. This limits my prop color selection to the BLUE props provided in the kit. I'm now looking for a Spaceship pod.

I hid the Cyclops2 VTX under the board with VHB tape and desoldered the wires for the camera to route under the frame. This puts the camera between the front two ducts and no wires hanging out over the frame or under the canopy.

04/07/18 The spaceship cover arrived and this build looks great! No one will see it coming.

I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
