Finally got around to installing the Tiny Whoop Disco LED strip on a Whoop build. This little light is crazy bright and flashes in some really cool colors and sequences.

nice. do you know what the power draw v rpm is with those props?...could work it out if you ran it at full throttle, set the timer to shut down, then recharged the batteries and noted the consumption.

I've never checked but I'll find some time to check it out. Based on flight times, and motor temps after flight I'd venture to say that they're some of the most efficient Whoop props I have.

yeah it sucks cos the manufacturers don't publish the power and thrust coefficients so picking props is impossible. in theory a 2 blade prop is the most efficient but more blades is more thrust for a given rpm.
I suspect that most people don't fly very fast so thrust is probably moot anyway and they can get what they need from 2 blades.

The Venom V2's definitely have noticeably less thrust than Gemfan tri blades, but they feel smoother in the air.

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..
