About a year ago, the drone racing group Team Big Whoop started experimented with modifying micro quadcopters for FPV racing to create a formula that was less expensive, slower (and therefore easier to learn), and could be flown in smaller areas - and they called the concept "Tiny Whoop." They started with the Blade Inductrix, which can be purchased in a Bind-N-Fly package (without transmitter) for $70, then outfitted with inexpensive FPV gear and a pilot's existing radio, but is also available Ready-To-Fly with FPV gear for $100.
Here's a video that Team Big Whoop put together about Tiny Whoop drones:
Travis Brock, the new owner of SDRC Raceway, allowed a group of Tiny Whoop pilots to arrange a course through the track and pit area on a practice day last week - here's a lap around the course, courtesy of William Heim Photography:
What do you think? Will RC car racers give Tiny Whoop racing a shot?
