The engine specialist T-Motor offers a new small-format Cinewhoop, the Tron 80 Whoop HD. It bears a small resemblance to the iFlight Protek, mainly due to the shape of the propeller covers. It measures 10.5 x 10.9 x 3.3 cm with a diagonal of 8 cm engine to engine and a weight of 68 grams (without battery or HD camera). It is based on a carbon structure and propeller protections, available in grey or blue.
The motors are T-Motor brushless, of course, from F1103 to 8000KV for Gemfan four-bladed propellers of 4 cm diameter. The motorization, in “push” mode, is piloted by a T-Motor F4 HD AIO flight controller which integrates an ESC 4 in 1 of 13A BLheli_S. This flight controller is equipped with an easy-access USB-C connector on the back of the device and a plug to easily connect a TBS type radio receiver. The video part is provided by a Nebula Nano camera and a Caddx Vista box, compatible with DJI FPV headphones. The set can be used directly with DJI’s radio control, but it is also possible to use another radio receiver.
The Tron 80 Whoop HD is able to accommodate an HD camera such as GoPro Naked (see here) or BetaFPV SMO 4K (see test here) to film in high definition with image stabilization. The T-Motor datasheet does not indicate whether the manufacturer provides support and power supply for these cameras. A controllable LED makes it possible to differentiate between several cameras in flight, for example during an FPV race. The power supply is to be provided with an XT30 socket. T-Motor recommends Lipo 3S, probably 450 mAh, for an autonomy of 6 and 7 minutes according to the manufacturer.
