Brushless Whoop | BetaFPV Beta75 Pro
BetaFPV Beta75 Pro Brushless Whoop
This brushless whoop is sick!
In my last Tiny Whoop review I looked at three tiny whoops in the 75mm range. The Inductrix FPV+ was too expensive and only uses Spektrum but the meow mode was cool. The Boldclash B06 was really poor quality but I liked the brushless motors. The BetaFPV Beta75 was all around good but needed just a bit more power. The BetaFPV Beta75 Pro brushless whoop has all the good specs from each of those whoops and more!

What makes the BetaFPV Beta75 Pro special is that it uses brushless motors unlike the Beta75 that uses brushed motors. Motor spec wise it’s the same as the Boldclash B06, 0703 15000kv but the BetaFPV motors are so much smoother and more powerful. The Boldclash B06 was junk. After I did the Tiny Whoop review we went to a Tiny whoop race. I let my friend fly the Boldclash. Within 5 battery packs the motor bell fell off, USB connector came off and the VTX bled on everyone’s video.
The Beta75 Pro’s brushless motors matched with the 40mm quad blades has enough power to fly outside. Even when there was a 10mph breeze, I was able to easily fly outside and have fun. In rate mode it had enough power to feel almost like a normal quad. It can easily roll and flip.
The Beta75 Pro brushless whoop runs on BetaFlight 3.2 so it’s super simple to set up. It’s available in three Rx versions, FrSky, Spektrum and Futaba. I’m using the FrSky version so it has an XM rx. The Beta75 Pro doesn’t come with any manuals in the box but it’s not an issue. I had the RX bound, all the settings done in BetaFlight and flying within 5 min of opening the box.
To bind the XM to your Taranis, hold down the bind button while plugging in the batter. The LED on the XM will stay a solid red. In your Taranis set the mode to D16 and select bind. You’ll see the LED on the XM plus start blinking. Power off the Taranis and unplug the battery. When you power back up everything will be bound.
The setup screens in BetaFlight are just like a normal quad running Betaflight3.2 and Dshot flashed ESCs so it’s super simple to configure everything.
It even has Dshot compatible ESCs. You know what that means? It has turtle mode and you can enable motor beep! Turtle mode is a feature that lets you reverse certain props to help you flip over after a crash. How cool is that. It pretty much has all the features of a full size quad.
Flying default PIDs with the rates turned down, the Beta75 Pro flew great. Even flying outside with a 10 mph wind I was surprised at how well it flew. The brushless motors with the quad blade props had enough power to fly acro and enough punch to do some simple freestyle maneuvers.
The Beta75 Pro brushless whoop has a 25mw single button 40 channel VTX with Raceband frequencies. Single press to change channels and hold for 4 seconds to change bands.
The BetaFPV Beta75 Pro brushless whoop retails for $120. It still costs less than the brushed Inductrix FPV+ and has way more features. It uses the 550mAh 1s sized batteries which cost about $6.5 each. Not terrible considering you get around 4 min flight times with lots of power. I’ve been using this $15 6in1 Tiny Whoop charger and it works great. You can charge 6 batteries at once with selectable HV (4.35v) or standard (4.2v), .2mAh or .6mAh charge current, USB 5v out so you can charge your phone and powers off any LiPo with a XT60 connector.
Would I recommend the BetaFPV Beta75 Pro brushless whoop? Hell yes! I liked them so much I reached out to BetaFPV to start carrying them in the store! What I really love about the Beta75 Pro is that it can fly outdoors. It’s the perfect quad to set up a small track in your backyard to race with your friends. Grab some friends, grab some Beta75 Pro brushless whoops and have yourselves a whoop ass good time.
After I posted this video I had several people tell me about a motor issue on the Beta75 Pro. Some people where having an issue where the motor bell comes off on hard crashes. I contacted BetaFPV and man, these guys have great support! They are aware of the issue and have already fixed the solution. The original motors had just a small brass collar that holds the motor shaft in place. On hard crashes this collar would pop off and the motor bell would come off. The new updated motors have a bigger collar that are laser welded to the shaft making it nearly impossible for the collar to come off.
For people who have ordered from my site, have no fear cause BetaFPV has owned up to this error. They are sending replacement motors. Free upgrades for everyone! If you ordered from my site, send me a message and I’ll send you the new motors we we get them.
If you found this post helpful, it would be super cool if you purchased the components from my store or purchase items from my Amazon links. These posts are expensive and take a loooong time to make so the purchases make it possible for me to keep making them. Thanks in advance, I greatly appreciate it 🙂
