whoops

my 1s whoop can beat up your 1s whoop.

Notes

  • After seeing Andrew Tallman's whoop do some amazing things, I got his setup & PIDs and cloned it
  • The newer version of SE0703 with e-clips on top and bottom are way better so avoid the old ones
  • Use d8 mode without telemetry off in betaflight. the rx will still send back voltage and rssi which you can send back via aux channel for OSD (D8 with telemetry and D16 glitches for now as betaflight is implementing these FRSKY protocols over SPI which is very cool but still premature)
  • You MUST change out the stock JST PH2.0 pigtail as the wire is too thin and will be the limiting factor. I was only getting 1:30 flight time on my 550mah before doing this and now get about 3:20.
  • Cut down props to 2 blades to increases run times and has plenty of power
  • I'm using 260mah liHV packs for incredible flight characteristics at the cost of flight time as well as longevity of the batteries. 450-600 high quality cells work great too.
  • Help reduce yaw blow out by updating the ESC settings with startup power 1.5 and motor timing at medium/high
  • Total weight before battery is 27g

PIDS

  • Roll 90 110 46
  • Pitch 100 140 46
  • Yaw 190 120

I'm blown away. I watched your vid, and the performance you are getting out of that 1s rig is sick.

How are these Happymodel motors? Are vibrations an issue? I ask because I recently swapped 0703 Boldclash motors with Racerstar 0703s and they are quite awful - vibrations are so strong that my quad has significant drift issues. Your flight footage looks smooth, but is there anything wrong with motors you used or are they safe to buy?

Yeah. If you have space and skill it sure is:) I'll stick to 1s for indoors - at least until I'll move to a bigger appartment. Enjoy your Mobula!:)

ah, in my tiny flat, even the 1s brushless is too much...I guess I could try to build a 1s 65mm but the brushed silverware NFE whoop is perfect indoors for me.
I did fly the mobula7 with zero tilt around in my flat. It required no breathing and severe concentration :smile:

I know the drill;) Winter is coming so it's time to sharpen reflexes and replace trees, benches, lamp posts with chairs, tables and laundry drying racks;)

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
