Bumblebee Carbon Fiber Quadcopter Frame 550mm

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 brushless outrunner 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!

Hi, I am running with standard motors and Pro Flight 30 amp esc's. battery is 11.4 V 5000mah Turnigy, but disappointing flight times average 8 mins, any suggestions for better battery??, also thinking of FPV also, any input would be good......

what is the length of your flight with 2200mah battery, mine is never go beyond 5min, i have camera and fpv tx installed, so don't want to over weight it.
 Doobieman 931 points
Power the camera and transmitter on a separate battery, maybe 500-800 mAh or so.

I installed a 4s 3000mah batt and I got 8 min of flight time with Fatshark Tx/Rx and a Mobius cam on board.
I could go probably for 10 min and never wanted to push it to the limit!

Well, I did take the "over tighen" issue into consideration for these props, but they still broke for no other good reasons! None of my broke from the root/center near the motor shaft! I just flew my in 10 mph wind and they broke! My guess the wind could cause the props to vibrate in resonance at certain frequencies which could magnify the intensity of the vibrations!
It seems that these props are not designed to handle the size of the BB quad!
 Doobieman 931 points
The props for this bird are fragile, for sure. That one should break just by flying, is ridiculous. You can replace the motors with ones that don't require you to buy these particular props, and give you more options for size, and climb rates. Also, the older landing gear was much better, but you can't even order that as a spare part.

Prop size?
 Global RC 2 points
The Propellers are 10" x 3.8 Pitch .... Plastic, Need balancing.They tend to break when over tightened or if over max lift capacity 1700G. So I guess the heavier the more risky.

Hi, can anyone suggest a replacement motor?? Nothing wrong with mine, but may want to upgrade in the future.....

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 !
