I started BetaFPV whoop drones with the Cetus pro. This model is quite a bit smaller. Naturally owning the Cetus pro, I have experimented using the 450mah batteries instead of the stock 300mah. Outdoors the 300mah gives around 2 minutes, indoors 2.5 minutes. Using the BetaFPV 450 I get over 4 minutes indoors! (when I say indoors, I do not mean indoor racing! I mean joy riding in my house) The quad does fly smoother with the smaller battery. I was very happy to have an F4 flight controller which gives full Betaflight support to customize the quad. This is NOT something the Cetus pro has! Only a couple things I did not like:
-Overheats? I have had a couple small problems with the VTX turning off after the drone sits idle for a couple minutes. I have also had an RX disconnect during flight 10 feet in front of me which was strange.
-The blue section is very soft plastic, to give it strength however the side effect of this not being hard plastic is, when you bump into something the propellers will scrape against the body, leaving scrape marks. Not a real problem just something to be aware of.
-My drone was NOT able to bind to my BetaFPV literadio out of the box. I tried every protocol. I had to go into Betaflight and set the RX setting from "frsky_X" to "frsky_D" and everything came to life! So if yours will not bind, this may work for you.
As always, thank you BetaFPV!
During the flight you can see that it is a bit too heavy compared to a classic meteor 65. But in any case it flies well. The problem is that it overheats a lot even after only 2 quiet flights. 3 stars because in my opinion the simple meteor 65 is much better
