US65 Pro Micro FPV Whoop Racer Indoor Flight Test Review

This upgrade to the popular US65 micro whoop includes more powerful motors, updated flight control board, improved FPV camera, high amperage battery connectors, and 1S or 2S battery capability. Find it here http://bit.ly/US65-Pro

Pros
– 65mm tiny whoop with decorative USA or German canopy and frame. Canopy includes enhanced ventilation for cooling of the video transmitter.
– 40 channel 25mW video transmitter with OSD and Smartaudio capability.
– Crazybee F4 flight control board loaded withBetaflight 3.5.7.
– CADDX ANT 1200TVL camera.
– Brushless NX0802 14000KV motors seem to provide some improved efficiency over the original 19000KV motors. I was able to get about 43 seconds more flight time in 1S flight as compared to the original US65.
– 5A continuous / 6A peak ESC.
– New ET 2.0 battery plug greatly reduces battery voltage drop which was a significant problem with the original US65. Comes with four 250mah batteries with ET 2.0 connectors.
– Also comes with six port PH2.0/ET2.0 battery charger. 12V power supply is also included for the charger.
– Also includes nices carrying case which can hold the drone, its batteries, charger, power supply, and accessories.
– Available receivers include FCB internal Frsky, Flysky receivers, or external Frsky R-XSR, TBS CRSF Nano receivers.

Cons
– Although the ET 2.0 seems to solve the voltage drop problem of the original US65, its plug is somewhat difficult to insert into the battery receptical. Take care when inserting so that you do not force and bend the receptacle pins.
– Uses dual bridle battery connector to enable switching between 1S or 2S flight. However, a shorting plug was not included with my package to allow 1S flight. I had to manually short one connector using a small piece of aluminum foil to conduct its 1S demonstration flight.
