The idea for this build was to create something that resembled the ever popular Stormtroopers, and be a build that would be great for flying through my tight basement Whoop course. Since I already have a couple brushless, and 716 powered Whoops, I figured for this one I'd go a slightly different route and do a 615 build.

This is the end result, and I like to call it the Stormwhooper :grinning: With the 17500kv motors, and the NBD Venom bi-blade props it's just about the perfect speed for the size of my course.

The Stormtrooper (if you can call it that) helmet canopy is just some bits of 3M vinyl I cut and stuck on there :D

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
