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.

04/02/18 - Ordered a blue spaceship pod from Gearbest. Who knows when it will arrive? The quad is built and ready to fly. 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.

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
