The BetaFPV Meteor 65 Pro is now available with ELRS built into the flight controller. That means you’ll get an incredible link to your drone for an even better flying experience. I’ve been a huge fan of ELRS ever since it came out and it is one of the best things to happen to the hobby. We are seeing it on more and more drones and now we have a few Tiny Whoop ELRS options. The new BetaFPV Meteor65 Pro is currently the best ELRS Tiny Whoop you can get, edging out the Mobula 6 ELRS quad. If you aren’t sure what ELRS you can read about it here. TLDR… Better and cheaper version of Crossfire.
Meteor65 Pro ELRS version
The biggest improvement on this tiny quad is obviously the ELRS receiver that is built into the flight controller. That helps keep the weight down. The Meteor 65 Pro is only 22 grams and 30 with one of the included 300 mw 1S batteries. The Meteor65 uses the superior BT 2.0 connector for smoother more efficient power. The motors are BetaFPV’s 0802 SE brushless motors. Another big difference between this quad and most 65 mm quads is that it is using 35 mm propellers instead of 31 mm propellers. I find they help give me a little more punch and definitely are more efficient.
Meteor65 vs Mobula 6 ELRS
I prefer flying the Meteor 65 ELRS over the Mobula 6 ELRS for one big reason. Flight time. The Meteor65 consistently gets me close to 4 minutes of flight time per 1S battery, whereas the Mobula 6 quad consistently delivers less than 3 minutes. The Mobula 6 also uses smaller 0702 brushless motors, likely making it less efficient.

How to fly ELRS?
In order to fly any drone with an ELRS radio link you’ll need an ELRS module. I’ve tested out a few and found most ELRS modules work surprisingly well. I’m a fan of BetaFPV’s two modules. They make an ELRS Nano module (for smaller controllers like the FrSky X-Lite or X9D) as well as an ELRS micro module (for larger radios like the Radiomaster TX16 or FrSky Taranis QX7). I really like the larger micro module as it has a built-in screen, LED lights and can be used without having to set up lua scripts. You’ll likely also want to upgrade your antenna. ELRS comes in either the 915/868 or 2.4 G versions and I’ve found the 2.4 to be extremely impressive. If you want to learn more about ELRS, click here.
