This is my first build, and I wanted something not typically used for the 99mm frame. I went with new BetaFPV 1105 motors and 4s battery. I was aiming for endure tiny FPV drone "Toothpick style Pickle V1" Flight time is 9 min on 450mah 4s with moderate ripping
This is still a capable little bugger, amid not as agile as 2s 080x primo or hyperlite 1103 toothpick, however the flight time is great and plenty quiet for park rippin'
I am loving the 12A Whoopstyle FC's, so far they have handled anything I threw at them up to 1105 & 4s battery

I did try 65mm bi-blades first, but I think thats where those bi-blades reach their limit on the weight, I needed something stronger, Gemfan 2540-3 for the win! Not only they are quieter but, much more throttle efficient compared to bi blades, for this particular build.

pretty easy, some folks "wiggle" them back and forth to snap them off. I desoldered mine with a KL T12 tip, I posted a youtube video on my channel where I prep the board for the motor wires, (my video angle was pretty bad so I salvaged what I could)
