TinyWhoop clone, with Eachine E010 frame.

Most basic whoop-clone build with a frame, flightcontroller and a fpvcam+VTx combo. Small mods done to the antenna, where the large leaf antenna was replaced by a more durable whip antenna. Battery holder and VTxCam holder have been carved of some product-foam. Weight of the flyer is 22-23g without battery.

I've had some major power/thrust issues, and part of trying to resolve the problem, I've replaced the original battery pico -discharge plugs to more bigger mcp X (PWC / JST-PH) connectors (a.k.a PowerWhoopConnector). The motors could be also the issue, as these current motors are quite cheap and I didn't notice any difference when changing the old original motors away. :D All in all, it's a decent flyer indoors, but flying outdoors is not currently possible.

There's still some thrust issues, that are to be solved after the 2017 summer. Part of it, I'm trying some mylipo.de HV PWC lipos to give some powerboost and ordered a new set of 59Krpm Racestar motors 6x15 motors.

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..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
