The Beta 65x is the small Brother of the Beta 75x a great Brushless Whoop made by BetaFPV. Known for quality this is the right choice if money is not an issue and you prefer a smaller form factor than the 75x.
This model comes with two PH 2.0 connectors so you can continue to use your 1S LiPo’s that you might have for your brushed whoop.
It comes with a default cam tilt of 35° which is a little bit high for indoor flying, but perfect for tight outdoor spots. On thingiverse you can find cam mounts with different tilts. For indoor 25° cam tilt is quite a good choice.
The cam is the same that comes with the Beta 75x.
Equipped with a F4 flight controller this quad is perfectly future proofed. It also features an OSD and you can manage your VTX via Smart Audio.
Some users report that they have washout issues when coming out of dives. There are a couple of solutions, like changing the props direction to props in. Props out seems to be the preferred option for racing.
In the package you will get two 1S batteries, one extra set of props, one extra canopy and of course the copter itself. The canopies tend to be the first thing to break in a crash so you better order some extra, just to be on the safe side. The frame on the other hand is a tank - it holds up to a lot of crashes.
