64mm Brushless Whoop 21g!

Tired of the same old whoop frames breaking? Yet Another rendition of my past designs over at Thingiverse.com. An actual whoop 64mm size with 31mm props and the latest brushless motors along with all the latest technology. The smaller they are the funner they are to fly inside.
This Whoop is built around the 36x36 all in one FC design. I like the BetaFPV F4 1s or 2s Brushless Flight Controllers (Frsky RX) the best, but the CrazyBee F3 Pro works just as well.

The frame is only as strong as the material you print it with.
I only use MatterHackers NylonX. I haven't been able to break a frame yet. I can only bend them, but I don't abuse my quads I fly pretty conservatively I guess you could say indoors.

With the parts listed below you can accomplish the following weight:

64mm Whoop with 31mm props 21g awg! THE FRAME ONLY WEIGHS 4g!
Frame can be found at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3626213

FIRMWARE: I installed the following settings using Betaflight 3.5.4 (not entirely sure the Mockingbird settings will work on firmware above 3.5.4). After PID tuning to the Mockingbird settings YOU WILL NEVER LOOK BACK!!

CAMERA AND VTX:
"TURBOWING CYCLOPS2 FPV 700tvl Cmos Micro Cam" mixed with the
"Crazepony Micro AIO Caddx Firefly VTX" with smart audio (this is the lightest camera and VTX matchup on the market right now 3.5g) (The prop Guard is designed to only fit this camera and VTX) you can change it of course and make your own design.

MOTORS:
BetaFPV or HappyModle 0603 1S 16000kv-19000kv Brushless Motors 1.6g
BetaFPV or HappyModle 0802 1s-2s 16000kv-19000kv Brushless Motors 1.9g

NOTE: Has no authority with 0603 motors and 31mm props unless you follow the steps to adjust your throttle curve in the following link.

PROPS:
RKH 31mm 3 Blade Clear (had to drill to 1mm if using BetaFPV motors)
HQ Micro Whoop Props 31mm 1mm shaft

HARDWARE:
All 2M plastic screws cut to size (other than the metal screws that come with the motors)

A BIG shotout to MicroManiac for contributing information from all his builds.
Another BIG shot out to ErgoFPV for providing a throttle curve for the 0603 size motors.

Hello, I unfortunately don't know of any company that prints with the NylonX materials. I can definitely print you two frames and battery mounts of your choice, just let me know and we can discuss the fine details in a PM. For my 2s setup I'm trying a battery called "Venom 300mah 30c" only weighs 17g for a 2s battery. I'm getting about 3.5 minutes. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016ZM3CVA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
For my 1s setup I'm using "Crazepony HV4 35V 300mah 30/60c" always last for 4 minutes every time.

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..
