Ok guys … winter is coming. Time to get the whoop fleet up to snuff. Even here in Florida where winter doesn’t happen - it still starts getting dark really early and cuts into outside flight time at the end of the day. Sooooooo… I need whoops to get my daily fix in just like you guys that are snowed in soon.
Anyway in what turned into a brainstorming session with @burtlo yesterday - I had the realization that my nano qx flew with alot more umph than even my most modified whoops and it did it on much slower motors. Now we’ve seen 7mm whoops with a standard frame size, with a larger frame size, and even big 8mm whoops… but I have not seen a 6mm whoop that had ducts large enough to spin nano qx props. So the idea for a hybrid whoop is born. Big props, light high kv 6mm motors, small battery. The intention is maximizing thrust, minimizing weight, and keeping a whoop look with ducts.
I think it’s gonna rip harder than anything we’ve seen in the 6 to 8mm whoop class and still handle tight spaces like a dream from its light weight.
What do you think???
