The Eachine E010 is the perfect start for a great and affordable FPV tinywhoop. This is my take on a a fully modded E010:
- better frame
- new Racerstar 0615 67000rpm brushed motors
- Gaoneng (GNB) 300mAh HV battery
- Gemfan 1219 props
- 3d printed camera mount
- Eachine TX06 AIO FPV cam

Probably the cheapest option to get you flying a drone. It's available for around 10$ ready to fly. Next step is to modify it to have a tiny fpv whoop.

Built my own Larva-X HD using the Caddy Baby Turtle. wasn't that difficult to install, but there is a lot of wiring to do. I decided to put the nano VTX piggyback on the canopy cause there is not a lot of space.
