The Bumblebee Carbon Fiber Quadcopter is a stylish and high quality quad frame perfect for aerial videography or for just flying around at your favorite local flying site.
This frame is constructed of beautifully finished genuine carbon fiber, the quality is top notch. It features folding arms and folding landing skids which makes it easy to transport and store. The removable dome top gives this quad personality and makes for a great way to hide your electronics giving it a very clean and tidy look.
The landing skids on the Bumblebee are quite tall which gives plenty of ground clearance for mounting a camera underneath with the optional camera mount (sold separately). This is the ideal platform for shooting awesome aerial video!
This frame comes with 4 x 35mm brushlessoutrunner motors in the box taking the guesswork out of choosing your power system. It even includes propellers. Simply add your own ESCs, multi-rotor control board, radio system and batteries to get the Bumblebee in the air!
Features: High quality genuine carbon fiber construction. Removable dome top. Foldable arms and landing skids. 4 x 35mm brushless motors included. Tall landing skids for under-frame camera mounting.
Dear Quad-cop flying colleagues.. I am looking for the simplest (can avoid going through programing?) control board to use ans I am also expecting high quality giro performances (stab flight for videos). KK2 is the best ? What are your recommendation? Many thanks
currently outta stock. check after a week or buy from local ebay seller who sells( more than double the price). But still buy it. (kk2.0 board) also you should buy the USB asp programmer to upload the new 1.5 code which is much much more stable than the default firmware.
if you have enough funds buy Naza and you dont need anything.
I havn't used multiwii pro, but I tell you- If you need RTF board with everything stable and perfect dont look at anything else than naza. the people who cant afford naza buy kk2. and if you want to program and tunePID settings buy a ardupilot( multiwii pro) board from Hk. You should buy Naza only.
does any body know if those mystery 20a blue series esc are good to use with a DJI Naza ?
I'm replacing the stock ***blebee ones coz they are 500htz and after reading a couple of forums i sussed out they are no good with the Naza
I have ordered a hobby-wing Skywalker Quattro 25Ax4-UBEC but i would like to get some mystery 20a for back up
please let me know if you think they will bee good to go
Hello. Could you give me an estimate on time of arrival for the ***ble bee 550 quad.also can I use walkera devof7 e eyesfpv transmitter with this model. A list of any other products needed to finish this build would be greatly appreciated.thank you for your time. William jensen

Hey guys. I'm having problems with my ***blebee, or my HKMulti-Rotor Control Board V3.0... I'm set up as far as programming and wiring goes, the problem is when armed and ready to go only three motors work. It´*s not the bolts for sure. When I switch cables with another motor it´*s running and the other motor stops instead. I'm thinking that have got the cables wrong to the RX? (1-AIL, 2-ELE, 3-THR, 4-RUDD) Or the controller is broken somehow... What do you guys think?
Thanks / Andy
Any basic 4ch transmitter and receiver will do but it is nice to have a set with some programming features so I would take a look at the new Orange T-Six DSM2 Transmitter and something like the Orange R615 receiver to go with it.
well worth the wait its the lowest price arf quad kit with motors and esc i have crashed it many times as i was new to hobby and no ill effects besides props i switched to dji props alot cheaper but u have to ream out the hole i cant wait to get the new hexa ***blebee now that im more comfrotable with flying
International warehouse is now -20...yah i'm # -20 on the list....however almost every other HobbyKing warehouse EXCEPT the International one (that delivers to USA) has them IN STOCK. SO why doesn't HK send us those in stock ***blebee's? This isn't Rocket Science...
Hello guys. I´*m trying to config my BBblee but as a new comer lots of reading are waiting for me!
Just to make me happy, please pro quad pilots, a BBblee must fly much more smooth and be efficient than a lady bird, isn´*t this correct?
Is it really difficult to find correct pi set up, escs, motors and propellers?
As an exception one guy had to change stock motors but all the others are ok, I suppose* Did anyone have to change motors too?
When is this coming back in stock? I wanted to build this one and do the camera mount for my Go Pro Hero 2 but I had to spring for the DJI Phantom in the mean time because this has been out of stock for over a month now. Still really want to build it as a second quad though, it looks so nice to fly. Any idea how close in size this is compared to the DJI Phantom. I am hoping the ***bleebee is bigger? I was planning on going with 30amp ESC's and the KK2 board.
I am a total noob to most of this, i am thinkkinng of buying this frame and stick a cam under it, i am very mpressed by7 tyhe videos of Ole Morten. under one of his vid he gives the detail on his all set up, which I am trying to follow more or less. I am wondering what would be a good board (available onn hobbyking), there is a whole bunch of them, and I am not sure which i should go for...
any help greatly appreciated.
I personally would recommend the kk2 board with LCD. There is a lot of information about setting up on the Internet and is very easy to use
I have one of these on my ***ble bird and its great
hi thank you or replying. just thought by making the arms a bit longer it might make it a bit more stable? also im thinking of changing the motors because of having to use props made for this quad, would these (turnigy aerodrive d2830/11 1000kv) be a good replacement for the ones that came with it ?
WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO ACHIEVE ? THE ORIGINAL DESIGN OF EACH QUAD HAS ITS LIMITATIONS, YOU HAVE TO CHANGE SOMETHING ELS BEFORE YOU WOULD GET ANYWHERE. YOU WOULD NOT GAIN MUCH BECAUSE YOU WOULD NEXT BE LOOKING AT BIGGER MOTORS PROPS, ESC, JUST BUY A BIGGER MACHINE,
What would be the advantage of extending the arms on this quad? I already have 14mm carbon tubing and want to know if it will be worth while or not ?
Great kit that goes together easy and flies well the only thing you need to do is fit washer between the motors to motor mounts because the motor mounting bolts are 1mm too long that short the winding out in the motors. I fitted the KK2 board to this frame drilling four holes and used nylon rises.

God Quality Kit! Easy to put together though without any manual/instructions. Good value for money. Motors looks nice too.
Tricky to install the flightcontrollerboard though, i had to make new holes.

Sweet kit... fitted together too easy with all provided screws. i used to only scratch build multi rotors but no longer this kit is superb. Fitted up with my Wookong controller on its first flight photographed images for a daily newspaper.

This kit went together very well and is really nice quality. Does anyone know where i can get replacement props as they are different to ones i have seen before. They have a large diameter hole (6mm ish) and anti rotation inserts. Does HK carry spares as i could do with a additional battery tray to mount my GPS !

bonne qualité pliable. sans manuel alors bien regarder les photos pour le montage. ne pas prendre les esc conseiller ci dessu, ils ne sont pas de bonne qualité
