Rosco's 0705 Brushless Whoop

This is my first go at a brushless tiny whoop. Overall I'm pretty unhappy with the performance (see below). Check out the full review here: http://coreysnyder.me/firstbrushlesswhoop/

Performance

  • Flight times on a fully charged battery, running until the motors won't spin (not good to do) is just under 2 minutes.
  • In any kind of self-leveling mode it drifts to the left. This makes flying in this mode really not very fun as you're constantly compensating.
  • It doesn't hover until about 75% throttle. This means you don't have a great range for throttle control.
  • In acro mode it's quite fun for about 1.5 minutes. It's quick, it handles well, and it's great for inside flying!

If I did it again

I'd definitely go with either:
A: Smaller lighter motors
B: A bigger frame that accepts bigger props.

I plan to swap out the battery connector so I can run bigger batteries to get better flight times. I hope the added weight of bigger batteries does't completely take away from the flight times of having the extra MAHs.

If you check out the information here on their "Brushless report" you can see why they recommend running a bigger prop on these motors.

Yea. The Sunnysky 0705s are Not really good. Also their 0703s heavly unterperform in comparison to the Racerstar or Boldclash. If you consider buying new ones I would recommend you the 0603 12000kv or higher

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
