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!

BetaFPV Beta75 Pro Specifications
  • 75mm
  • BetaFlight 3.2
  • Dshot600
  • Beeper
  • Turtle mode!
  • BetaflightOSD
  • Brushless 0703 15000KV motors
  • 40mm Quad Blade Props
  • 25mw VTX
  • Uses a 1s HV 550mAh Battery
  • 28g No battery
  • 42g with 550mAh 1s
  • Available in FrSky, Spektrum and Futaba

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.

BetaFlight 3.2

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 $16 Crazepony 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.

**UPDATE**

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 🙂

    Hey Mike, I ordered everything for a beta75 pro on 1/30 so I can diy the build. I worried now because I have heard the betafpv 0703 brushless motors are having problems with the bushing flying off leaving the bell unsecured. I heard betafpv is currently working to remedy this but I’m not sure if they will ship my motors before or after they figure this out. So I was wondering if you have had any issues with your bushings on your betafpv motors? Thanks!

      i posted an update on the post. betafpv is owning up to the motor issue and sending me replacement motors for the beta75 pro i have. if you ordered from somewhere else, tough luck! haha, jk, I’d reach out to where ever you got it from and exchange the motors

    Mike! You are killing me! You know I’ll buy anything you recommend right? LOL Honestly though, it is great to have you and Flight Club FPV to help us enjoy this great hobby. I bought the Beta 75 and I haven’t even flown it yet and of course now I need a Beta 75 Pro. I am very intrigued by a whoop that can handle a little outdoor flying. Of course I will get it from you when I do. Thanks again for the informative videos and all your hard work spent “bringing new shit to light”.
    I agree that the Crazepony charger is most excellent. I at least charged the Beta 75 batteries in anticipation of flying it next time I’m home for more than a few hours. Between work and ski season it hasn’t been easy…

      hehe, you can never stay on top of everything. FPV advances daily! yeah you’ll love this 75 PRO. It flies great even outside!

    Mike any chance you will be carrying the Batteries for these………. that china slow boat is a killer plus id rather spend my money where i know its valued

    • Mike Tseng 02/04/2018 at 5:02 pm - Reply

      i wont be carrying the battery. it’s the same price on amazon and it’s prime! i can’t compete with amazon!

    Can you fly these things in Acro mode? I have tried using a Tiny7, and it’s almost impossible to fly in Acro mode. I mostly have to fly in Horizon mode. I am trying to find a Tiny Whoop I can fly well in Acro like the 5 inch drones. These tiny ones just seem so sensitive in Acro. Should I greatly reduce the rates to compensate or do most people just fly these things in stablized mode?

    • Mike Tseng 02/05/2018 at 9:58 pm - Reply

      yes, that’s the main reason I got this one. it runs betaflight so you can tune pids and lower the rates so it’s not so sensitive. the video at the end was all acro mode

      • SIG11 02/05/2018 at 10:20 pm - Reply

        Are they the rates you have listed above or did you also add expo to your transmitter? I need to get some of these from you when they come in. Looks awesome!

        • Mike Tseng 02/05/2018 at 10:44 pm - Reply

          no expo was done in the transmitter. everything was done in betaflight pids. we should have more next week

    Mike I’m having trouble with betaflight as it doesn’t recognize my transmitter. The reciever is bound and I have uart3 selected and everything set up correctly as I would with any other quad I own. Is there something I’m missing here?

    • Mike Tseng 02/11/2018 at 4:58 pm - Reply

      i’ll email you

    I had a blast flying my Beta 75 Pro outdoors today in a significant breeze. My buddies and i were tearing it up on the RC car track beside our runway. When my car battery died I grabbed my 75 Pro and started chasing the cars around the track. What a blast! Plus throwing in some flips and rolls and split esses for good measure. Hopefully you will be hearing from at least a couple of them soon, the 75 Pro was a big hit. It flies very well outdoors and it has prop guards. The camera is also very good.

    Any idea when those replacement motors will be coming in? I haven’t blown a old style motor yet but I will replace them when the new ones arrive.

    • Mike Tseng 02/26/2018 at 10:28 am - Reply

      hi eric, the shipment we were expecting two weeks ago is lost 🙁

      i’m waiting for betafpv to get back from holiday for some insight, sorry

  9. Eric 02/27/2018 at 4:21 pm - Reply

    Hi Mike, I followed your set up instructions and set the beeper function on an AUX channel but my motors don’t beep. They never beep for any reason. Any ideas?
    The turtle mode works great!
    The RSSI in my goggles always seems to say 14. Is that considered full strength for these little quads? It is the same in both my Pro and brushed Beta 75’s. I don’t think it ever changes, LOL. There is no telemetry going to my Taranis X9D+ it is all Betaflight OSD. But flying around outside with the Pro I thought the range was very good. The picture quality and range is good too.

    • Mike Tseng 02/27/2018 at 4:24 pm - Reply

      set up the beeper on a switch, then enter this command in CLI:

      set beeper_dshot_beacon_tone = 3

      i never could get the rssi to work correctly but honestly don’t really care. i don’t plan on long ranging it, ha!

  10. Eric 03/01/2018 at 1:35 pm - Reply

    Thanks Mike! Yeah, I’m going to remove the RSSI indication from the OSD since it doesn’t give useful info. I think the range on this is certainly better than my old HH Tiny Whoops.

    I am unable to get this quad to fly. Motors will not spin up properly or fast enough to get off the ground. I have new motors version and frsky version. Any ideas would be great.

    HI Mike, are there any special instructions for binding to the Spektrum model?

  13. Sebastian Vohwinkel 04/03/2018 at 7:41 pm - Reply

    Hi, is it possible to use the quad with a Flysky FS-I6 Transmitter? Does it’s FC understand IBUS or PPM?

    • Mike Tseng 04/05/2018 at 10:08 am - Reply

      i believe these do come in a flysky model
