I know this is a subject that’s been beat to death, resurrected, and then beat to death again a dozen times. But maybe it helps someone new having it refreshed.
I upgraded my Whoop and batteries from the stock 1mm micro-JST to micro-LOSI like Hubsan uses, and what an incredible difference. Flight times improved from 1:30-1:45 to a solid 4 minutes. Maybe a touch more. And much more punch, if you can say something this small has punch. Power delivery is smoother and more regular throughout the flight.
This upgrade allows me to pull upwards of about 170mAh from my 200mAh E-flite batteries before LVC as opposed to as little as 40-50-60mAh with the old connector, really showing how badly restrictive the connector is when you’re pulling higher currents to fly with a camera. TX01 in my case. Batteries are a healthy 3.7-3.8v immediately after landing.
Thanks to everyone in the Micro Motor Community who are always finding new ways for us to enjoy our hobby even more!
