Why GroupGets?

AlienWhoop is open source hardware licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0 International. Enthusiasts are encouraged to build their own from scratch. Recognizing that building a flight controller is not always possible for each person due to time, disability, funding for tools, or comfort we have decided to make it possible for people to still enjoy flying an AlienWhoop and share in the community spirit.

Options and Add-Ons

F7 216 MHz Processor Upgrade

$10.00

As of today, a limited number of F7 chips are available after a month or two global shortage. If you are interested in trying out this chip please note stock may change between the start and end of the GroupGets and availability may change. Currently, the F4 chip is outperforming the F7 in BetaFlight 3.2. Developers are working hard on the 3.2 release candidate and bringing F7 performance up to and beyond F4. Just be aware that although more expensive and better on paper it may be some time before this chip lives up to its potential. At least you'll have bragging rights about having one of the few F7 whoops in the world clocked at 216 MHz ;-)


Upgrade to MPU-9250 (include compass)

$5.00

For most everyone the MPU-6500 6-axis motion processor will be the ideal match of price and functionality. If you fancy experimenting with a compass you might consider upgrading to the MPU-9250 which is basically the MPU-6500 with an additional 3-axis magnetometer (compass).


Micro Motor Warehouse Alien Receiver Cable

$2.50

For those who prefer a no-soldering-required approach to adding the external receiver this is the perfect solution. Designed by Benedikt at Micro Motor Warehouse specifically for micro brushed builds like the AlienWhoop.

Alien Receiver Cable 22mm


Banggood.Com FrSky Ultra Light XM Receiver Up To 16CH

$10.00

This is hands down our favorite external receiver. It comes out of the box without a case (unnecessary weight), builtin bind button, and 16 channels and is a perfect match with the Taranis Q X7 remote for an affordable full featured whoop experience.

FrSky Ultra Light XM Receiver Up To 16CH


Banggood.Com Frsky XM+ Micro D16 SBUS Full Range Receiver Up to 16CH

$16.00

This is the full range version of the FrSky XM and boasts two antennae while still weighing only around 1 gram.

Frsky XM+ Micro D16 SBUS Full Range Receiver Up to 16CH Product ID: 1110020


Lemon-RX.Com Lemon Rx DSMX Compatible Satellite

$12.00

For Spektrum users we love the Lemon RX series for the price and ease of use. Remove one or two screws and pop off the plastic housing. Weight watchers may prefer to desolder the 3-pin header plug. Or use the Micro Motor Warehouse satellite cable and plug directly into the AlienWhoop. DSMX should give slightly better performance compared with DSM2. On a whoop you may not notice.

Lemon Rx DSMX Compatible Satellite Receiver Product Code: LM0008


Lemon-RX.Com Lemon Rx DSM2 Compatible Satellite

$8.00

Same as the above LemonRX except DSM2 only and a few bucks cheaper. We have used these for many months with Spektrum transmitters and they have a bit of a micro brushed builder cult following.

Lemon Rx DSM2 Compatible Satellite Receiver Product Code: LM0001


AlienWhoop Leaderboard T-Shirt (B&W)

$18.00

AlienWhoop T-Shirt, "Take Me To Your Leaderboard". Black preshrunk cotton. Sizes range from Small through XXL.
