About a year ago Happymodel introduced the mobula7, a 75x brushless whoop that quickly become very popular as it bought impressive performance to the table for a very reasonable price. Since then, Happymodel have released a few other quads like the Mobula7 HD which brings back some customer support nightmares for us (the first version of this was basically a time-bomb as it used an under rated ESC for the motors). They then released two toothpick class quads, the Sailfly which was meh, and the larva X which although decent, did not realy stand out. But its the end of…
I see you listed the fact it ships with 3.5.7 under “the bad”, but I think that’s one of the reasons it flies so well stock. 3.5.7 was the peak of Betaflight whoop performance, it’s all been downhill from 4.0.
One upgrade I’d do to it before even taking off is the Meteor65 frame. It’s lighter, probably tougher (I’ve been bashing it quite hard and nothing broken yet + BetaFPV is known for making durable lightweight whoop frames) and has lower ducts and vertical motor struts so less disruptive to airflow.
I’m not gonna comment on the rest of components, just gonna say if you are getting one make sure you get it from a trusted reseller that will have your back
Thanks for reading @fichek, its nice to know some people actually read my article . I guess you are probably right about 3.5.7… And I know your opinions on
Happy SadModel I did not have much bad things to say about the mobula6 TBH
I do think the mobula6 canopy is stronger than meteor… but the rest I can agree are higher quality on the betaFPV. But given that its ~£70 vs ~£95 you can forgive some of the cheaper parts on the mobula6, plus you get extra lipos out of the box
