Mighty Whoop

Regular price $25

The Mighty Whoop started out as an 8.5x20 brushed Whoop style skeleton frame, and has evolved with the FPV hobby into a brushless king! At 73.5mm motor to motor, this frame is slightly larger than the classic flavor of whoop but the status quo is changing and people want more speed and more power! With the Mighty Whoop, you get an extremely durable frame that is 3D printed with a special PLA alloy that has the durability of ABS with the stiffness of PLA. I have extensively tested the failure modes of this frame and found the balance of light weight and durability. This frame weighs just at 9 grams and is built around the 16x16 mounting holes for 4 in 1 ESCs and Flight controllers. You can build the Mighty Whoop to nom on either 1s or 2s lipos depending on your selection of electronics. As with all of my designs the Solderless Frame Swap (SFS) has been implemented so that if someone bigfoots your quad and breaks the frame you can swap all the electronics to a new frame in less than 10 minutes. Have a few frames on hand so if you break something you can rebuild in the field and not have to go home and fire up the soldering iron. I also did my best to preserve access to the FC USB and cut windows on the interior of the shrouds, you still have to remove one motor to plug in but that is better than pulling the whole stack out. I promise the Mighty Whoop will stand up to anything you would expect a quality frame to survive.

SPECS:

  • Dimensions: True X with motor to motor being 73.5mm and outer dimensions shroud to shroud it is 96mm
  • Weight (FRAME ONLY): Roughly 9.0 grams, it is 3D printed so don't call me crying if it is 0.5 grams heavy. 
  • Supported Motors: 07XX motors have a happy nesting place securely in the Mighty Whoop.
  • Electronics: Mounting holes are spaced for 16x16 electronics.
  • The Mighty Whoop I fly has an All Up Weight (AUW) of 45.5 grams with a 1s 450mah battery. Of course, depending on how you build yours the weight will vary, but I did want to give an example of potential AUW.

Lessons Learned:

  • Do not forget to edit your FC orientation in Beta flight
  • Using an XT30 connector makes a significant performance increase. With the XT30 connector, I measured 13.5 amps being pulled on my 1s 15000kv build. YOU NEED AN XT30! These little brushless motors are thirsty and you will starve them with a JST or smaller connector. 
  • 1s 720 mah lipo with XT30
  • The motor wires are durable but easily break when bent back and forth at the solder joint. Solder them to the ESC in a way they are not being doubled back over.
  • Center of Gravity (CG) is crucial in a build this small. If you have the battery off center it will feel like you have a flat tire and pull to one side.
