Appears to be a nice little backyard fly'r actually. I avoided the whoop series primarily because I worried the brushed motors and the frame was a little bit frail to my taste.

This little guy is fitting in better in my opinion.... I want to pull the trigger on it

Too bad they don't offer telemetry down, you're right. I still prefer a lipo sensor on the radio band even if it offers osd ... it just feels better connected for some odd reason. (that much simply falls more into a golfer's superstitions realm)
Fly like your mad at it.

Yes sir! You haven't seen tinywhoopses on my channel for THAT reason

And true.. it's not perfect.. You'd still like it though The thought of it being nearly indestructable makes flying it very relaxing

Have you done any reviews on the FT gremlins? How does it compare?

...I did pull the trigger on this one.

I have a decent back yard but it is limited for airspace sharing that area with mature trees. A 32" epp plane fits in real well but a multirotor in that environment would have to be small and durable. This is all close in flying and was another influence in this specific choice.

Besides ... It's just too cute to pass up. Brushless and with that much torque on 2s, you just can't go wrong. I've been looking for a backyard tree hugger that was nimble and able survive a reasonable hit so yeah

... patience is my worry now because I won't see it till early June

Very nice quad this ET115.. I still very much enjoy mine..
BUT.. the camera isn't all that great, so I replaced it with a Runcam micro Swift..

Glad I did

Nice upgrade too.

Mine is still sitting in Compton California. It's passed through customs and is only a matter of ground transportation to get to me.

I may even have time enough to order the cam and have it here for when the copter arrives

I have the eachine qx65, the eachine tiny whoop...yes it is brushed...but for the price...I have been digging it....Decent camera too...I saw your review for this quad...but then horizon hobby had a 30$ coupon and it brought the Blade Torrent 110mm quad down to 99$...It looks identical to this one, so I dunno who copied who...but it is brushless, flies on 2 or 3s....it should arrive any day now...great reviews...

I'm excited to see your impression of the 110.

I did follow behind Dutch's last video and ordered a better cam and would agree too ... it's only real weak point. I am getting image wash outs passing across the sun to shadow and the overall clarity could be so much better anyway.

I like this scale of copter and it fits perfectly in my back yard.

If blade gives up a better cam for ya.... we have another win without the upgrade.

Something happened to my video stream. I had first noticed that video quality was gradually getting more and more milky and had initially blamed it on the lens fogging up a little in the humidity....not.

Come inside to wipe things down and shine up the goggles again. Once indoors things progressively got worse until all I get is snow.

Trouble shooting brought me to a damaged coil on the TX module itself. I wish I would paid closer attention to where the zip ties were placed. An impact I'm sure caused this but .... were the zip ties laying over that component and could it have stressed that point.

I ordered a nice little tiny whoop camera setup to replace this now.

Interesting! Well yeah.. anything can & will get damaged, but I'll have a look if I can shield it somehow..
