Tiny Whoop Flight Controller – Specification Winner
Our favorite flight controller out of the bunch is the BetaFPV F3 Flight Controller with OSD. We previously had the Acrowhoop V2 as our top pick since it was the only one with SBUS and a method for tracking battery voltage at the time. The times have changed and the BetaFPV (V1.1) flight controller has taken the helm. This bad boy has built-in OSD and supports SBUS on FrSky. It is also available with a DSMX receiver or without a receiver. It may be one of the pricier options, but it is worth the premium. The other flight controller that is right on par with the BetaFPV offering is the Beecore V2 with very similar specifications and a cheaper price. We hesitate to make it our #1 choice because some people have experienced issue with receiver range and it has the MPU6500 sensor.
Tiny Whoop Flight Controller – Best Price
The Queen F3 EVO is the cheapest option of the bunch if you can find a good deal on Ebay. These can’t be found on any other sites at this low of a price. The Queen F3 is a bare bones package compared to many other Tiny Whoop flight controllers so keep in mind the following before you buy one on Amazon:
- Acro ONLY, no horizon mode on this little devil
- No USB port on earlier versions of this boards (Check before you buy)
- PPM only (No SBUS)
- Comes with 1.25 JST battery connector cable
Tiny Whoop Flight Controller – Best Overall Value
Like we mentioned before, the Beecore V2 has almost the exact same features as the BetaFPV flight controller but for under $30. It comes with the MPU6500 sensor which is more prone to vibrations, but is still a decent sensor. We also haven’t had any issues with losing signal like others are reporting with this flight controller, so we aren’t giving that issue much weight in this evaluation. Given the price and functionality, we are giving the Beecore V2 the title of best overall value.
