the DIY Tinywhoop
The tinywhoop is awesome, built from an stock inductrix base the TW team keeps pushing the boundaries of micro fpv racing further with ever new video. The only problem is now, the damn things are out of stock everywhere or way over priced. You could pickup one of the diy kits directly from tinwhoop.com all brand name, rock’in the beebrain and insane speedies but that is gonna cost you (around $200 bux).
What about the rest of us in the real world that pay bills and fly off a budget?
You know we got ya covered… you just have to wait a little longer for delivery.
What you will need to get started
The build plan follows the same basic formula of the tiny whoop, biggest difference here is the 8520 motors as we’ll need something a little bigger to step up the power.
Build List $83
Frame Kit $11 This is a complete 3d printed inductrix/tinywhoop style frame kit with 8.5 motor seats, everything you need is included even the camera mount and antenna protector.
Beecore f3 evo flight controller – The Beecore F3 evo is a micro brushed flight controller, easy motor plugs and usb port ready to be tuned in cleanflight.
8520 brushed motors – Not the typical 6.5 motors, these are the 8520 Chaoli brushed core-less at a fraction of the cost. At only $12 for a pack for 4, you really should get some extra as these are the 1st things to go.
AIO camera/vtx – The are so many options when it comes to AiO combo’s, the Eachine Super TX01 is about the smallest option with 40channels and 600tvl all on low 3-5v low voltage.
Battery – 1s 3.7v 200 mAh 20 lipos are about the right ammount of juice, anything bigger and you compromise overall weight and stability.
Props – Inductrix style tiny props, I have even seen dude hack off 2 off the blades~
