We all love our tiny Whoops. They are friendly little quads that can be flown indoors without the worry of causing carnage if you make a piloting mistake. The downside is they are a bit underpowered.
Let's just say for a moment that we could have more power in our Whoops, say like, 50mph "straight up" kind of power; combined with the handling and the precision that would allow you to fly real acro.
Enter the Beta65X
This is a 65mm brushless quad with compact ESC and F4 flight controllers, 17500KV motors, powered by two 300mAh stick batteries in series for one super fun, tiny acrobat.
The 65X is a plug and fly solution not a kit. And it is, almost, literally a plugged in solution. The motors plug into the ESC. The ESC plug into the flight controller via PCB mounted plugs. The VTx and camera also plug into the flight controller. The only soldered component is the Rx. This makes the 65X very easy to work on. More flying, less tinkering, I like that. Even the firmware is preinstalled and comes with a pretty decent factory tune.
The 65X comes with a battery, spare canopy, and a spare set of props. Check the bottom of this page for links to spare batteries and other accessories for the 65X.
Thoughts on battery care. If you want to get the best performance and greatest number of flights possible from your batteries, limit your flight times to under 2:30 secs. It only takes one "too long" of a flight to damage a battery to the point that it will no longer perform as new and worse it will continue to rapidly degrade from that point on. Personally, I limit my flight times for these small 1S batteries to 2 minutes and my batteries are much happier for it.
Below are the specifications for all of the onboard electronics.
