Here it is guys, the Ultralight Whoop Build you've been waiting for!

I CHALLENGE YOU ALL to build one! It will change the way you think about micro quad weight forever! It has the best T:W ratio out of all the brushed quads I ever built (!)

If you keep it light, it is nearly indestructible as well. I've only managed to break one of these frames, ever. Printed in regular ABS. Just make sure to use the smallest battery possible, no 250mah or anything like that. It will get less performance and break quicker if the weight goes up. I use Mylipo 175's.

The lightest I have managed to go is 15.25 grams, if anyone can get it below 15 grams I'd be super impressed! (Well it is possible with 2 bladed props but you get less punch so that kinda defeats the point which is max T:W Ratio)

I've been working on this video for quite some time. It turned out rather long, but I didn't want to cut any of the details or the funny parts. English isn't my primary language so sometimes I have to think a little bit looking for the right word, please bear with me! :)

Below is a link to all the parts used. I have used affiliate links so I get a small amount when you buy from these Banggood links and it doesn't cost you anything. So why not sponsor me! :D

Batteries: You can use any battery but keep in mind heavier batteries will reduce performance and increase damage on crashes. I like to use Mylipo 175mah:
