Tiny Whoop Upgrades: Flight Controller Comparisons

When it comes to the Tiny Whoop, the stock Inductrix board is severely lacking.  This is especially true for pilots who really want to push the platform or themselves.  Thankfully the markets have responded, and there are a lot of options out there.  Below I’m going to list out several options.  Many of them I’ve not flown yet myself.  Come back to this post as I’ll try and update it frequently!
