1S is great because

  • cheap whoop batteries
  • easy to charge batteries on the go
  • quiet
  • lightweight - resistant to damage in crashes
  • relatively safe

probably my last build with happymodel motors they have only given me trouble. hope these turn out different

I'll probably need to use 350-450 mah batteries instead of the 260mah whoop cells
