The FullspeedRC TinyPusher is, as the name suggests a pusher whoop, meaning that the motors are mounted upside down and are pushing the air down. This is done in order to have more space on top of the whoop to mound an HD camera platform of your choice, making it a cinewhoop.
Instead of going for an all in one cam, which is responsible for FPV feed and HD recording, this model is intended to be used with a dedicated HD camera. There are mounts available, one for a naked GoPro and for the Insta360 Go.
The AE65 is the Aniversary Edtion of the US65. Aniversary in this context means anniversary of Eachine as a company, not the copter itself. So: Happy 7th birthday to you, Eachine.
According to the product description the AE65 is limited to 500 pieces, but you can basically get everything as a spare part and build it from scratch, once the “limited edition” is sold out.
When I first saw the URUAV UZ85 on Banggood, I could not believe it - a 85mm copter for 78$? I have to try this one! When I received it, I was wondering about the package - why is it so small - did I get the wrong item?
The Geelang Anger 85X 4k caught my eye, not only for the 4K recording. Also I liked the previous Geelang product I reviewed - the Geelang Wasp 85X quite a lot - currently my favorite toothpick sized quadcopter - so I had very high hopes for this one.
As the name suggests, this is a 85mm sized whoop, very similar to the iFlight Alpha A85, with one major difference - it can record in up to 4K to the onboard DVR.
In this article I want to talk a little bit about battery connectors. Battery connectors - you wonder? Yes! What might at first sound like a boring topic with not much to say, turns out to be a quite interesting one, especially when it comes to brushless whoops.
Every mechanical connection is a place where electrical energy can be “lost” - or to be physically correct - translated into heat. You want your plugs to be as lossless as possible, so that all the energy can reach the place where it should be used - mainly the motors.
The iFlight Alpha A85 is the big brother of the A65. As the name suggests, this one is 85mm from motor post to motor post. And is capable of recording HD footage to the onboard DVR.
The quadcopter is advertised as “Indoor” - I don’t really think that this is true for any 85mm quad, except if you really have a big indoor space. At least for my apartment, 85 mm is way too big. I mean, I can fly it - but it is simply no fun. In a bando on the other hand, this is obviously a different situation - any place that you can explore, you will have a lot of fun with this one.
The Alpha A65 is iFlights rendition of a 1S, 65mm whoop. I was very excited to see an iFlight whoop since I usually really enjoy their ready to fly products, like the Green Hornet Cinewhoop which I reviewed a couple of months ago.
Their products are usually very well thought out and super solid. Spoiler alert: The iFlight Alpha A65 is no different in that regard. But let’s see what exactly it brings to the table.
The GEPRC Stable 12A stack is intended as an all in one solution for toothpicks and microquadcopters.
Being an AIO, it is flight controller and ESC in one board. But this is not all - it would not be a stack without the video transmitter. The flight controller does not come with an onboard SPI receiver, so you have to provide your own receiver of choice.
When I first saw the Geelang Wasp85 on Banggood I thought: “Ah something different” - I want to take a look at that. Bangood was kind enough to send me one to check it out.
I was hoping that it is a bit of a sleeper and surprises by just being plain awesome, unfortunately that was not completely the case.
The total weight is 46.5g without batteries and 63g including two 300mAh, 1S batteries. I like to fly it with GNB 2s, 450mAh batteries and with those it weighs in at 75.2g.
