A comparison chart of the currently available flight controllers for Inductrix Tiny Whoop and Eachine E010 size brushed micro quadcopters.
Update: Why spend time building tiny whoop when you can just buy one ready to fly? Here are some of the best Tiny Whoops on the market.

Purely from the specification, AcroWhoop is the most outstanding. It has built-in RX, and it supports Telemetry so you can monitor LiPo voltage from your TX, and even setup warning. It has a better MPU (MPU6500 can be noisy), and the STM32 F3 processor has just given it a boost in performance. However it’s nearly 1 gram heavier than BeeBrain and Beecore, and it’s a pretty big deal in Tiny Whoop quads.
The BeeBrain doesn’t support E010 frames due to the placement of USB port.
NUKE FC can fit on the Inductrix and E010 frames, however more DIY are required to get it working. Also you will need to find an external RX, either Spektrum Sat or Frsky SBUS (doesn’t support PPM). It’s probably more suitable for some other DIY micro brushed quads.
BeeCore is the cheapest option here, and it supports both E010 and Tiny Whoop frames. There are 3 different RX options, making it the most flexible FC in the list.
