Compared to the Tinyhawk II and previous BetaFPV kits the Cetus Kit has a fantastic controller. It includes the LiteRadio 2 SE and packs incredible quality into such an affordable kit. It’s got actual RC-radio gimbals, not cheap toy-joystick potentiometers like most others in this range. It can connect to your computer via USB and be used to fly a simulator. It can even be managed in OpenTX Companion, the same software used to configure much more expensive radios.
The goggles in the BetaFPV kit include a diversity receiver and DVR. They’re not terribly comfortable for long periods of wear, but they get the job done.
Previous BetaFPV Quads have been pretty basic, the Cetus has completely flipped that on its head, offering some features that are seldom seen in FPV, let alone beginner RTF packages, boasting both altitude hold and an emergency landing feature. Offering 3 flight modes, to allow for straight forward and simplified beginner progression. Unfortunately, the Cetus only has brushed motors, which are a generally less powerful and responsive than other options in the RTF category, which would definitely be the biggest weakness of the kit.
The truth is that there is no perfect beginner RTF bundle. They all excel in one area and are weak in another. The quality of the LiteRadio in the BetaFPV kit is high enough that, for some people, it will make up for the middling quality of the quadcopter itself. Others will choose a kit with a high-quality quadcopter and plan to upgrade the controller later.
