XJB-75 Mini FPV Racing Drone: A Brushless Tiny Whoop Alternative

XJB-75 Mini FPV Racing Drone

The new XJB-75 is a 75mm wheelbase mini FPV racing drone with powerful brushless motors and a particular frame design which protects the antenna on top, very similar to the one we’ve seen on the Eachine Aurora 90. It also reminds me a bit of the FlexRC Owl series of frames, which is another suitable frame for indoor FPV.

Powered by four 1104 7500KV brushless motors and a weight of 99 grams (battery included; 66g without a battery), the XJB-75 should be able to produce some decent thrust for practise and indoor flying. The motors work in tandem with HGLRC XR396-25A BLHELI 2-4S 4 in 1 ESC, meanwhile the propellers are 3-blades R2030s.

The XJB-75 also features a 600TVL HD CMOS 1/4 inch camera with a 5.8GHz 40CH NTSC/PAL VTX that can switch between 0/25/50/200MW. A PBF3-EVO Betaflight F3 flight controller with Betaflight 3.01 on it runs the show.

Packing a 11.1V 550mAh 35C LiPo battery, the mini quadcopter has an advertised flight time of about 5 minutes.

Note that the XJB-75 features support for Flysky transmitters too, which is really handy in my opinion.

XJB-75 Mini FPV Racing Drone Pricing and Photos

The XJB-75 is already on sale at Banggood for $159.99 (at the time of writing) with wither DSMX, Flysky or Frsky compatible receiver, which is a very interesting price considering the very similar but slightly bigger Eachine Aurora 90 goes for $145.99.

You get the same 1104 7500KV brushless motors in a smaller 75mm frame — the Aurora 90 is 90mm — and 7 grams lighter (73g vs 66g), which should definitely mean better overall performance for about $14 more. Is that worth the extra in your opinion? Let us know in the comments below!

    Anyone else have the XJB-75? It’s been a nightmare to get up and running. If so let me know I need advice on setting it up correctly in BetaFlight.

    • What’s exactly the issue that you’re having?

  • Dale Keebler

    It’s runs very erratic, one motor doesn’t run sometimes. Won’t bind most times. The motors run at full throttle sometimes. It’s more like what’s not wrong with it. I’m fairly new to these but have set a few up and had no issues. Not sure what to do. Any assistance would be great I’m ready to scrap it.

    • In my opinion you should start with re-flashing the FC firmware. Perhaps try BetaFlight if it came with CleanFlight (and vice versa).

        Every time I try the board shuts down. No leds and looses com. I tried loading locally and via web. No luck.
