Geelang Anger 75x - 4S Tiny whoop! (20 min 34 sec)

ANGER 75X whoop 3-4S
Size:106mm * 98mm * 53mm
Weight:46g (without battery)
Weight:76g(with Original 4s 260mah Lipo battery)
Motor:GL1202 KV6900
Flight controller:SI-F4FC Three-in-one tower Version: MATEKF411
Power supply: 2-4S battery input (DC 7-17V)
Built-in 12A(each) Blheli_S 4in1 ESC Dshot600 ready
Built-in Betaflight OSD(SPI Control)

The props are 1636 Gemfan and the frame doesn't permit the use of 2 inch prop.

Anyway with 4S lipo it's a very fast Whoop and you can fly like a bigger models without limitations we are used to have on tiny Whoop. All acro maneuvers are possible with its motors.

Flight time (I set 3.5v as limit) is more or less 4 minutes.

With 3s you have less power, obviously, but you can benefit from its tiny size to have fun in very small space!

In the video you'll see some propwash in fast descent but I augmented a little the I value and the result is very good.

I will post some tuning video if it will be interesting for you.

Here is my review with first flight of Ldarc KingKong Tiny 6X.

This time KingKong decided to use 7mm motors (like the old Tiny7) on 66mm frame (like the old Tiny 6): a perfect combination!
Speed and agility!

I finished my first overview video (sorry for the italian but the flight comments itself :-))
Flying Frog Eachine Q90C 2 Lipo FPV Brushed Racer (13 min 33 sec)

In the next videos I will try some other propellers (as alreay wrote I flew with the LadyBird props) and some other batteries (I have various 2S brands).

Anyway...what I like:
- stable and easy as first FPV quad
- configurable directly from the radio out of the box: flight mode, rudder response, video channel!
- you don't need to touch stock pid (at least for beginner) but it uses betaflight as a plus
- the transmitter is a toy grade transmitter but it's not a little transmitter even for big hands :-)
- the transmitter has a vibrating alert for low battery on the model
- the cam is a 1000TVL and I like it (in the FPV flight on my video I forget the lens protection :-))
- the video signal is clear at least indoor (I have to test the range)
- the prop guards save your propellers and don't change the flight

what I don't like
- the battery holder: I think the rubber band support are not so resistant
- the customized flight controller seems not permit all parametrization on betaflight. I was not able to use CLI to verify the version for example with two version of betaflight GUI

I like it and I suggest it as first quad for indoor!

Stay tuned ;-)

After a crash with my good ARFUN 95 PRO I damaged one arm and the FC.
