Review: Tinywhoop PICKLE JUICE 0802 20500kv

TinyWhoop.com was one of the first to play in the field of tinywhoop and so this company is present since a long time in this industry.

It was the first time that I got TinyWhoop motors so I picked up the new Pickle Juice 0802 20500kv.

It seems a good Kv value between the 19000kv or the 22000/25000kv for intermediate pilots.

Let’s do a tour !!

The motors are packed in a nice tiny box, with provided screws of course. I don’t find so much technical data about these motors (and they looks like similar to the HappyModel 0802 motors too, maybe it is the same manufacturer ? But HappyModel doesn’t provide the 20500kv), so here few things:

  • 0802 / 20500kv
  • 1mm shaft
  • top/bottom c-clip
  • 2g
  • 40mm wire
  • PCB pads so super practical to solder it back

The wires are a little bit too long if you are looking to save few grams for a 65mm build but it works perfectly on a 75mm one.

I setup a simple build by using the FC/ESC/VTX/Receiver/Canopy of the Mobula6, the Meteor65 frame and the HqProp 31mm. So it is a super light build with less 21g.

It is a really a weight that I recommend with these motors, less than 22g at least otherwise I feel them less efficient.

So I did many tests with them and I really like these motors with a light build, it is where I got the best feeling.

I’m getting the best top/controllable speed around 60% of throttle as you could see in the video.

It is probably not the best choice if you are looking for freestyle with a TinyWhoop, but for indoor racing you will have a great and reliable motor.

The only problem is probably the price that I find pretty high, not really something to justify the 20500kv or the PCB. Moreover I prefer much more the HappyModel motors or BetaFPV, you can check the same drone with these motors in the SENDIT test:

It is also weird to not find too much information about the thrust, weight etc or any technical information about these motors like you can find easily for other brands.
