Got this for my 2s whoops mainly and very pleased with it so wanted to share it with others.
As far as I know it is the only 4 port 2s charger in this handy small size , has mains built in and can also run off a battery and has most of the facilities used by the bigger chargers for a fraction of the price.

Got mine here.

Please consider clicking through this ( battery ) banggood affiliate link link and anything you buy after that visit will earn me a small commission at no extra cost to you thanks. It really helps me fund my reviews and I just buy more item which would possibly be of interest.

Good points
Chagres 2s and 1s lipos 4 at a time independently
Shows mah, per cell voltage, current for each lipo in 4 separate displays.
Runs off mains power or battery.
Can set current charge rate
Does normal and HV lipos
Charges NiMH battery too.

Bad points
Slightly bigger than a 6 port 1s charger but not much
Whoop batteries with ph2.0 with no wires cannot fit all 4 in at once unless a extention is made
Cannot set individual current charge rate independently
No storage voltage setting.

Definitely a great option both at home and for outside for charging smaller lipos and the only real option for 2s whoop really, much smaller and quieter than an equivalent full size charger.
Voltage was exactly 4.2 per cell on every battery I...Continue Reading

Note only the ESC can handle 3s lipo, people have flown the beta75x on 3s but I don't recommend it.

to review and share some settings which seem to cure washout issues for me.

Just got the new version to the 75x with upgraded ESC and FC because I'm defo not getting any yaw washout.
No tuning done my my part apart from rates.
ESC is rated to 3s and 10a now which could be very interesting.
This now a mcuh closer contest between the mobula7 and this, the 200mw vtx and f4 processor ,1103 smoother motors are a big plus, camera still struggles in dark areas though....

New version Beta75x yaw flips inverted yaw spin loops/rolls NO YAW WASHOUT! (3 min 13 sec)

New upgraded version beta75x garden ( back yard )acro flight NO YAW WASHOUT. (3 min 34 sec)

I got the emax tinyhawk from xt-xinte ( great service and cheaper than banggood and they have the mobula7 in stock btw!! )
Tinyhawk $98
$10 off coupon for the tinyhawk
$5 credit to your account if you send them a message telling them nigelsheffield123 sent you , or use this coupon

I will be comparing it to the other brushless whoops I have Inc mobula7, beta65x, beta75 pro, boldclash b06 pro and some of my DIY silverware brushless build too.
Specs on this are listed on the site and I won't go into great detail here but rather give my impression of it and information that you won't find by just looking at the sales specs.
So I don't waste too much of your time I will say that mobula7 is faster and more powerful and runs on 1s lipo or 2s so indoors and outdoors is the better option with huge punch outs and big loops etc possible, if that is what you want to look at my review on that.
However this frame is probably stronger and looks nicer with a carry case and is more stable so better for a new flyer or someone who just crashes a lot racing indoors and I definitely enjoyed flying it both in my house and garden, it handles a little better generally than the mobula7 too.

Good/bad points.

Flight times are about 3 to 3:30 minutes on 450mah ( mobula7 does 5 on same battery )
Camera field of view is slightly...Continue Reading
