Kabab Style super whoop Mock-up

Ok guys, I kinda need your help, any input would be much appreciated.
I have an fpv cam, vtx and the old racerstar br1103 10000kv motors, and I've been inspired to make a 'super-whoop' like what kabab fpv is working on.
I want to know if i should use the aio board from the mobula 7, or the teeny 16x16mm f3 stack(which is 10 usd cheaper).
I also need suggestions for whether I should use wood, delrin or 3d printed filament(abs, pla or nylon) for a carbon fiber alternative.

Links to the above mentioned electronics below, the motors are 10000kv, I chose 6500kv because I could not find a link for the 10000kv versions

I am not sure I believe in a printed frame, definitely not PLA. So I have ordered this


I don't think you can find a lighter frame for 65mm props. I will print an adapter to mount a whoop style fc board (1S betafpv). I am slightly worried if the ESCs are powerful enough for 1102 motors but it should be fine.

1s battery won't fly good on 2s battery setup. and 1s is where kababfpv is at right now. with what you have, you're looking at 2s setup. and kababfpv is not there yet at this time. so i would wait. for 16x16mm stack, 5-6A esc is kinda old now and limit you to 1103 motor max. i would get 16x16 10A esc from hakrc. have to solder on wires but you can use it later for another bigger build.

1103 will run fine with a 5-6a esc.

i take it back. don't buy hakrc 16x16 10A esc. it's bad. i'm going to try beecore f4 10A whoop board. hope it's not a bad board. stupid hakrc esc.

flexrc just released this frame. check it out and tell me what you think ?

I know that the new Beta 2S F4 (non AIO) has upped the amp rating to 10a. That has me really itching to build something like this from one :)

use the mobula 7 board. i think its more convenient and lighter!

matthew saigon   Jan 03, 2019  

i think i have something here. hear me out and tell me what you think.
in this build, the guy uses BetaFPV F4 2S 65x/75x board. but the frame is only 80mm. you can only use 2inch props.
but in this build, this guy use the same frame but with longer arms 112mm, which can fit 3inch props.
to put 2 and 2 together, you got a frame that can use a whoop board with arms long enough for kk 65mm props.

hope it helps.

In his latest vid he said mob7 board was good right? And I think this frame might work.

matthew saigon   Jan 03, 2019 

it won't fit kk 65mm props.

i think i'd roll with the delrin as that stuff is stiff as hell, and the AIO will definitely save some space, weight, and time

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
