Club News Bits
We might try a once a month building session at one of the members houses. Dan Woods will host the first session at his house on February 21 at 7 pm .

We are still flying Wednesday nights at the Paris Education Center Gym at 6 or 6:30 pm every Wednesday evening. If you haven't seen the indoor craft fly, please drop by to check it out or give it a try. It's a fun time to in the winter time.
Whoop or Tiny Quads
In early 2016, Jesse Perkins, a member of Team Big Whoop saw the potential in the Inductrix. By mounting a micro camera + video transmitter on the quad, Jesse created an FPV machine that fit in the palm of your hand. The protected propellers are forgiving of small bumps, much needed for flying indoors. The extra weight of the camera was supported by faster brushed motors and more powerful batteries. The insanely fun combination became known as the Tiny Whoop.
Since the introduction of the first Tiny Whoop, the entire FPV industry has fallen in love. These compact little quads can be flown almost anywhere, and there are plenty of videos to prove it. The protected propellers remove most of the risk of crashing - really only flipping the quad on its top will stop the madness. Turning your house into a racetrack and giving the internet the grand tour turns out to be spectacular fun.
Current State
Since the explosion of the Whoop in mid-2016, there has been tons of activity around micro FPV. The original build is still viable, but new breeds are being born all the time. Depending on how 'purist' you are, you can find many spin offs from the same design concepts. There are frames that support all types of hardware, bigger motors or even larger props.

You could say that any micro drone with brushed motors and protected prop guards falls into this category. Basically the Whoop launched micro FPV quadcopters into the mainstream. So much support has been pouring out from the community that even Multi GP has adopted a Tiny Whoop FPV racing class.Current State
