It just keeps getting better and cheaper, saw this on Banggood this morning. At some point there has to be a bottom?

Yeah that's true, always room to improve I guess
Now they included the FPV CAM + F3 FC + the option to select your own RX, it's awesome !

Didn't anyone see this "turbines" for sale separated?

It's funny that few months ago I wanted to build small FPV quad and there wasn't any cheap option + cleanflight compination. So I ended with CJMCU board. And now there is so many options for few bucks! :/

Out of curiosity would the FB90 be better than this since its running same size props but 2s?

2s should make it more efficient, but one would have to fly both to define "better". im curious to see how both shake out

I think it is just too heavy, that's the same battery as the qx90. 54 grams all up same as the qx90 unless the info for the qx70 is wrong. Horizon Hobby whoop is 24 grams. all up.

I guess it depends what you are looking for, I think the qx70 will be nice in its own way (and outdoors), but it won't have the personality of a whoop.

I wish they would base one on their e010 even if it means no dsm/frsky/flysky/F3.

I think its currently the best TinyWhoop killer (with FRSKY option + FPV CAM & VTX).
If the E 010 was integrated like that he will be first place.
I like the way it behaves.

I have a 8.5 mm 3d printed whoop on order(3dhubs). I wish i had seen the separate qx70 frame before i ordered the printed one. I ordered the qx70 frame and props anyway. The printed one uses 55mm props and the qx 40mm. Interesting to compare because of prop size.

Dutch RC commented something very questionable about this build: "How do 40 mm props fit a 70mm frame?"

Edit nevermind... i just woke up....

Lol. It sounds weird at first, but then you realize 40mm is the diameter of the props, and not the radius.
