Beebrain Floppy Whoop

This is the current iteration of my original Tiny Whoop. I tried the E010 frame, but it broke far too quickly, so I decided to try a 3D printed frame. This is a pretty minimalist design but it flies well and time will tell how it holds up. I'm using the original Cricket Cam from my first whoop build, but I may replace that with a VTX03 and a front mounted micro cam.

Weight without battery: 19g

Whiffles, I built a very similar quad - I am only missing a mount from what you have (waiting on a battery to test it out, they were back ordered). The USB will not power the motors or the vTx as far as I can tell, they might, but I was unable to get it to go, using CF that came stock on the board. May change to Bf after I get it running, but that requires some more solder to go into bootloader mode.

Oh bummer about CF. I wonder why they don't just stock them with BF from the get-go. I don't think you need solder if you just carefully bridge a small wire into bootloader. It'll probably require a second pair of hands to plug it into the USB slot though.
