7020 Whoop setup


#1

I built a 7016 Whoop as my first and it flys great. Thinking a 7020 might do better in the Kansas wind I picked up a 7020 kit and another BetaFPV receiver. I set it up exactly the same as my 7016 using Benedikt’s 3.2 Final settings and I’m using a 550ma HV battery. The 7020 has a very heavy feel to it and drops out in the turns, sometimes quite violently. Thinking it might be the motors, I tried a different set of 7mm x 20 motors I had and it made no difference. I had also purchased a second Beta65 7016 kit and so I put the 7020 brain into it and it flys perfectly. Are there changes I need to make in the setup to make my 7020 fly correctly? I’ve flown LOS RC for years but new to FPV and new to BetaFlight and the Taranis.

Thanks,
Carl

I agree that the 0720 Whoop setup is a bit of a pig with 0720-14 motors. They need larger props.

I’m about to release a faster 0720 motor, that makes this setup fly a lot better. Flight times are en par with 6mm though.
If you want an early bird of those, send me a message to support@mmw.rocks please!

Same size frame, but larger motor mounts, is the 8020. That flies for at least 4 minutes with decent punch. 7016 still feels a bit zipper though.

Thanks for the upgrade offer, I sent an email. I really love how the 0716 flies and I’m glad I started with it. Your informative store, your YouTube channel and this forum gave me a great start in this fun hobby.
