As many of you might know, BLHELI_32 has some really great features - bi-directional DShot and ESC telemetry. This enables the ESC to transmit the RPM the motor is currently spinning with, back to the flight controller, which enables such cool things as RPM filtering. And with bi-directional DShot you do not even need to attach the ESC’s telemetry wire since the back and forth communication is done via the DShot channel.
In this article I want to show you my top picks for brushless whoop LiPo battery chargers. Unfortunately there is no one, best battery charger for all whoop classes, but rather one best charger per cell count.
The optimal brushless whoop charger in my mind would be one where you can can attach 1-3S batteries, six at the same time, each one on a separate channel. The charger would have an internal power supply so it can be powered from the outlet but would also allow to be powered from a bigger LiPo battery.
And there is a reason for that: The NamelessRC board was developed in heavy cooperation with Bob Roogie, and it seems he mixed up with whom he was talking to at one moment in time. Instead of telling NamelessRC his ideas, he told them to one of the BetaFPV techs - that is the reason why the two flight-controllers are so similar. Funny enough they also credit him on their board. Bob says that NamelessRC was not to thrilled about that incident, but they understand.
They reached out to me and asked me if I would be interested to take a closer look at their product - sure, I always like to check out new gear. So they sent me one of their NLRC AIO412 and one NLRC AIO412T flight-controllers. In this article I will show you what the differences are and maybe help you to decide which one is the right one for you. The T in AIO412T supposedly stands for “Toothpick”.
Turtle mode or flip over after crash enables you to - as the name suggests - flip your quad back over after a crash. It reduces the walks of shame and the times you need to get off your couch to flip over your brushless whoop.
Flip over after crash is a mode that can be enabled in the modes tab, in order for this mode to be available you need to have your motor protocol set to at least DSHOT300. Also make sure that your ESC’s run at least BLHELI_S version 16.7.
The Beta65 Pro frame is a great choice if you are looking into building a 1S brushless whoop - light weight and super sturdy. There is a small mod, that makes the frame even better. Referenced to as low pro or low profile mod, there is only little information to be found about this mod online, I thought I would share how you actually do the mod.
Before the mod, the frame weighs in at 3.77g. The mod shaves off a whopping 0.14g pushing the weight down to only 3.63g.
