motor pin size?
 Doobieman 986 points
Too small. Probably 2 or 2.5mm. I had to solder on some 3.5mm bullets.

This quadcopter looks cool, but thats about it, if your looking for a good quality carbon fiber quadcopter kit for about the same price try the ironman 650, I own both and when i purchased the ***ble bee i found myself modifying the **** out of it, and when i was done i basically modified my ***ble bee and it became an IronMan 650. I changed the main tubes from 12 mm to 16 mm and purchased new motor mounts and switch to a new lighter landing gear and replaced the stock cool looking ***ble bee cover with a much lighter solid black cover. I use 5000mah 25c batteries, 11x4.7 props, SunnySky 920kv motors 25 mins flight times into the clouds well over 2000 feet up.
 Doobieman 986 points
I agree with you. After a couple of soft landing, both of my landing skid tubes broke in roughly the same spot. I was planning on using this as an aerial photography platform, but I have left that plan. At least one fo the motors sounds as if it is about to fail, and I simply have no faith in this carrying my Nex5 into the air.

BTW, Scott, you realize that people like yourself are going to be responsible for stupid laws to be put in place, because you're unable to follow the rules. Thanks so much for being an asshat.

I'm losing bearings on one of my motors on my ***blebee quad. Can I get replacement motors or bearings? If not, what are the specs. KV, amps etc.I should replace with?

***blebee - Brushless Motor PRODUCT ID: 031000046 Spec. Size: Φ*34.7 x 25.9mm Shaft Diameter: M6 KV Rating: 930rpm/V No Load Current: 1.5A *11.1V Weight: 89g

You can usually fix these motors. I had one and you could hear one of the bearings squealing at high speed. I disassembled it, oiled both bearings, and put it back together. Now it runs as nicely as the others. It only took about 20 minutes, and that was because I had to resolder one of the bullets.

What is the size of the motor connectors that come with this quad? I have the Qbrain 4x 25a ESC and the connectors are bigger that the motors. Should I change out the motors or use another ESC?
 tony 189 points
I'd have to solder the matching bullet connectors on the motor cables!
The QBrain will work fine!
 Doobieman 986 points
Don't know the size of these, but the ones on the QBrain are 3.5mm.

Pricey, but I love the way it looks in the air. Not aerobatic, but a sweet flyer suitable for reasonable camera work. A light gimbal and a GoPro would be no problem. This ship weights 1248 grams with a Quanum QFX aboard . . . add another 250 gr or so for the battery. It took a some effort to balance the motors, but they're smooth and reliable after 50 flights. Parts are well made and fit is very good. Some plastic bits may be a bit fragile, but I haven't broken any yet. The motors only draw about 5 or 6 amps in hover, so 20 amp esc's are certainly adequate. A 3,000 mah battery gives 8 or 9 minute flights. For me, the only downside was the price. I would have called it a 5 crown value at $125.
