Q: Nuke v AcroWhoop for 7mm and 8.5mm motors
#1
I want to 3D Print a frame for 7mm or 8.5mm motors - similar to the one Oscar designed.

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1677016
or
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1700311

Is there a reason to use the AcroWhoop vs the Nuke (forgetting the integrated RX on the acroWhoop, i have the FuriousFPV micro receiver in hand so the nuke can have a SBUS rx in seconds).  Which is the right FC for a brushed 7mm or 8.5mm build?

I cant really discern the difference between the two, outside of the integrated RX.

Thanks
Matt

The main difference between Acrowhoop and Nuke is the dimension and integrated RX, hardware wise they are nearly identical:

I would probably go for the Nuke because on the Acrowhoop, there are motor connectors and not soldering pads, making motor installation a bit harder for 8.5mm motors (as they normally come without connectors). Being smaller makes it more flexible when it comes to mounting in the frames (and easier frame design if you are doing it from scratch)

Thanks for the fast reply, Oscar. I finally got the Nuke installed. I ended up using a CF frame that I had won during a contest. Now, I just need to set the PIDs. The Nuke comes with PIDs similar to the F303 or Kombini for a regular 5" Brushed quad. I  have to figure out what to use for a 8.5mm Brusheless!
