BetaFPV BNF Meteor65 1S Brushless Whoop (BT2.0) - ELRS 2.4GHz
All products with batteries must be shipped by a ground shipping method.
The BetaFPV Meteor65 is a leading 1S whoop WINTER TIME drone. This 22.83g lightweight whoop drone comes with a completely new look and a special micro canopy, supporting the serial ExpressLRS 2.4G, Frsky, or TBS RX version. It is equipped with the BT2.0 connector, the lightest F4 1S 5A FC (2022), new 0802SE 19500KV motors, and C03 FPV camera. With the combination of those electronics and parts, it reaches the best balance between performance, weight, durability, and premium build design.
- Meteor65 is the first generation whoop drone powered by a brand-new BT2.0 1S battery. The BT2.0 connector effectively decreases internal connector resistance for a much better discharge performance compared with the initial PH2.0 connector.
- By using the latest 0802SE 19500KV motors and 31mm 3-blade props, this kit provides you with a completely different experience of a powerful indoor flight.
- Built-in 1.52g ultralight weight and upgraded C03 FPV camera. This new camera has optimal performance for indoor whoop drones.
- Adopted with an injection molding technique, the canopy is 1.60g ultralight weight and is more durable, anti-ruin, and heat-resistant, and provides good protection for the whoop drone.
- F4 1S 5A FC (Serial ELRS 2.4G) is flexible in upgrading and has great potential. It supports being upgraded to ELRS V3.0 separately without flashing Betaflight flight controller firmware.
- The various colors of the spare parts including the 65mm frame, micro canopy, and propellers offer pilots more choices. Using them with BETAFPV waterslide decals, pilots can easily DIY and build their unique whoop drones.
Let's see what's new in Meteor65 2022 version. It comes with a new micro canopy, which reduces the influence of heat on electronics. Supports serial ExpressLRS 2.4G instead of SPI ERLS 2.4G. And the new C03 FPV Camera ensures a high-quality and clear image.

BETAFPV upgraded all Meteor Series quadcopters like Meteor65, Meteor65 Pro, Meteor 75, and Meteor85 whoop quadcopters, through the new flight controller, motors, camera, frame, canopy, etc, to provide the best whoop quadcopters for pilots.
BETAFPV exclusively designed BT2.0 connector has broken through the bottle-neck of PH2.0 connector. The BT2.0 connector has decreased internal resistance of the connector effectively allowing more current to be transferred, which means it supports 9A continuous current (15A burst). This means stronger power and longer flight time on 1S brushless drones while PH2.0 just supports 4.5A. You can enjoy more flight time without being disturbed by low voltage warnings due to reducing voltage sag.
See the graph below comparing the BT2.0 connector and PH2.0 connector (solid pin version) in BETAFPV 1S 300mAh battery. The discharge current is 9A in this test. The BT2.0 has double the time (about 2 minutes) and a 0.2v improvement in voltage sag.
Flight Controller & ESC
The latest F4 1S 5A flight controllers are applied to all BNF versions of the Meteor65. It features Serial ELRS 2.4G instead of SPI ELRS 2.4G for ELRS version compared to the previous version. The Frsky version reserves two UART ports for the available external receiver so it can be used as PNP and can be switched to Futaba SFHSS protocol through Betaflight configurator. The ESC on the new board powered by BB51 hardware in place of BB21 comes with Bluejay 96k ESC firmware, allowing 0802SE 19500KV motors to give full play to the efficiency of power. They updated the gyro to BOSH BMI270 for better performance and stability since the new F4 1S 5A FC.

|FC Inside||F4 1S 5A FC (Serial ELRS 2.4GHz)||F4 1S 5A FC (SPI FrSky)|
|UART Ports||One UART Port||Two UART Ports|
|External RX||Not Supported||Supported|
Note: For F4 1S 5A FC (serial ELRS 2.4G), ONLY Betaflight firmware 4.3.0 and up start to support BMI270 gyro. For F4 1S 5A FC (SPI Frsky), we recommend using BETAFPVF411RX 4.2.11 firmware and CLI dump file offered by BETAFPV. If you update the 4.3.0 and up firmware for serial ELRS 2.4G from the Betaflight official site, please flash the CLI dump file for Meteor65.
The C03 FPV Micro Camera is 1.52g ultralight weight and a great camera for indoor micro FPV quadcopters. It features a 1200TVL definition with 1/3" CMOS sensor, 2.1mm lens for 160° FOV, and excellent latency, which boasts high-quality, clear and sharper images through your goggles.
The 0802SE 19500KV Motor motor is a lightweight 1S motor, compared with the 0802 series brushless motors, it is not only significantly reduced the weight which is only 1.88g/pc but also ensures excellent performance of power and thrust. It makes the perfect dynamic balance, which gives the drone more flexibility and longer flying time.
The lightest lower profile 65mm frame - Meteor65 frame is 3.25g only. The battery slot is closer to the center of gravity for a smoother flying experience, and you will land on the motor screws instead of the battery. There are more options for colorful frames such as Beta-blue, mint-green, sakura-pink, mango-orange, etc.
