FPV Micro Drones Compared

      Whether you are a new piloting looking to buy their first drone or you are an experienced FPV racer with years of experience, the fact is that brushless micro quadcopters are tons of fun. 

     Flying FPV freestyle once the goggles are on you are in the drivers seat of a flying spaceship is what makes FPV so addicting, and with these new tiny drones that have camera and VTX on board it is finally affordable and safe to fly FPV almost anywhere.

There is no agreed upon name for these amazing new toys, the many names include: brushless whoops, micro drones, micro quadcopters, or brushless tiny-whoops. Whatever you call them, Micro FPV drones have only been around for a few years and are loosely categorized by having less than 2.5 inch props.  Be careful though some Tiny Whoop purist will often gripe, "If it is not 31mm or less its not a Whoop!"

Here are three of my favorites below each has its own unique pros and cons and excel in very different scenarios. 

TinyHawk 2s  vs HX100  vs Beta75  Pro 2

FPV TinyHawk    


HX100

FPV BetaFPV

The HX100 from BetaFPV gives is larger, faster, and more agile than almost any quadcopter of its size. The carbon fiber frame does amazing things for the stabilty and strength of Quads this size. The lack of ducts protecting the motors (and you!) from damage saves some weight but also means that it is MUCH MUCH easier to break than say the TinyHawk which is nearly indestructable. If you have not been flying a long time, YOU WILL BREAK IT.

TinyHawk 2s  


The Tinyhawk 2  is the micro indoor racing drone. Safe for indoors, and built to last. Not as powerful as the others but easier to fly for beginners for sure.

55+MPH top speed



Beta75  Pro 2

The Beta75 Pro2 from BetaFPV is my personal favorite of the 3.  It is extremely light and uses its seemly over flexible frame to its advantage in that it is very very hard to break.  Check out some footage I got using one in a park:
