The Makerfire Armor 65 (and it’s cousin the LDARC Tiny 6X) is a good entry-level whoop package. However, it has a few problems for me. First, the motors are brushed(!!!). Second, the FC has no OSD. So I build a prototype Armor 65 or Tiny 6X brushless whoop.

An all-in-one brushless FC and ESC board has finally been released. It took a while for me to get my hands on one and even longer to get to building with one. Now, I use it with my favorite brushless whoop frame. Here’s how to build Rakonheli 66mm brushless whoop with Beecore Brushless AIO FC and ESC.
The Boldclash BWhoop B06 is a good entry-level brushless whoop. However, it has a few problems for me. First, the motors are not good. There are reported problems of shaft collets and bushings falling off. Second, the FC has no OSD. Third, I prefer my whoops tiny, and by that I mean 65mm (okay, a smaller version is supposedly out but it’s not yet widely available). So I build a better BWhoop B06.
