Getting started with the e-whoop
So you’ve seen all the videos of everyone whoop’in around like maniacs and you know that you need one, but 100 bux for a real tinywhoop isn’t as easy to come by when you are just getting started. Well meet the chiney-whoop or e-whoop, a cheap knock-off that can be easily modded to hang with any real deal whoop for a fraction of the cost.
The build process is basically the same as the tinywhoop, you’ll need to obtain all the parts and your soldering iron. Camera systems above are just my favorite recommendations, be sure to grab some extra motors as they do tend to be one of the 1st things broken in a crash… Extra batteries with a good c rating are also a must, just do yourself a favor and stock up on some now…205-220mAh is an acceptable size.
The next step is to remove the standard battery connector so we can add a JST 1.25 (inductrix style) plug. Just un-solder the old one and solder on the new jst, we’ll use the opposite side of these tabs to power the camera, just flip the 010 and solder the AiO camera directly, do what you can to twist up and shorten these wires as much as possible. Clean wiring here can really pay off later with the video signal.
The antenna and motors are the main repairs… anything else you may aswell just buy another e010. If you are going to change the antenna, you can also just take apart the normal pig-tail and solder it on, there really isn’t much signal loss from the old clover style and it will stand up to crashes much better. The motors tend to fall apart before the burn out, some people ass a little super glue to the bottoms as this is where they tend to break most.
The Chaoli’s motors are good enough to fly around and begin whoop’in. With better motors you can really whoop some ass tho… of course at the expense of some flight time. Get a little more punch in the throttle with the direct replacement tiny whoop upgraded motors.
