Mini-Review

Mobula7 review/compare to v1 and plans for frame swap to none ducted


Work in progress.
This by far the best 2s whoop there is out there, it's power and speed and handling are amazing and the price is ridiculously cheap.
Mobula7 V2 2s whoop crazy and smooth acro garden (back yard) flight calm conditions. (3 min 7 sec)


Mobula7 V2 2s whoop windy garden flight but it handles it fine. (3 min 14 sec)


I already reviewed the mobula7 v1 a while back and it was and still is the best of the 2s whoops by far and now it's even better so I got hold of the V2 ( comes as standard now and there is no longer the v1 for sale ) thanks to banggood for sending me this one to review.
Video bench look if you don't want to read the review
Mobula7 V2 quick look on the bench and how it's improved from V1 (5 min 28 sec)


The updates are as follows

V2 frame is stronger ( I never broke my v1 frame but others did )
Power harness wires are thicker and so are the wires on the batteries ( gives more power )
Betaflight version 4.0 ( more locked in feel better handling )
Supplied with a jumper for using 1s battery
Nice box with foam inserts which could be used for transportation

Depending on which version you get it comes with a 6 port charger and four 1s batteries.

The result is superb , there is even more power and the tune feels better than the v1 which was already great.

If you are thinking about getting a 2s whoop this is the one to get.
Affiliate link here , please consider buying through this , it will cost you no extra and it will help me prove to banggood that it's worth them sending me samples for review.

Some pics to compare the wires etc and see what's in the box.

Looks like it doesn't have the vibes/jello the Trashcan does and fixed the frame breakage issue of the original Mobula7.

How do you think it stacks up against BetaFPV's upgraded 75x?
The new "Pro2"

I have the 75x but not the pro2.
Against the 75x
This is lighter and more nimble and doesn't suffer any washout even diving at zero throttle, camera handles light better, canopy is stronger and the camera angle is adjustable plus it flies on 1s too.
The 75x is maybe smoother with its 1103 motors ( which probably last longer ) and f4 processor but out of the 2 I like the mobula7 better.
Plus it's cheaper.

The pro2 might be a contender but I heard reports of ESC failures on that ....

So for now mobula7 is best bet imho.
