Bumblebee Carbon Fiber Quadcopter Frame 550mm (USA warehouse)

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.

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 144 points
I'd have to solder the matching bullet connectors on the motor cables!
The QBrain will work fine!

ARE THESE HARD TO SET UP? DO THEY SET UP LIKE AN AIRPLANE OR A HELI
 MultiRotorManiac 2255 points
Depends on who you ask. No, they do not setup like a plane/heli. Multirotors require a brushless ESC for each motor and the Esc must be programmed for use with Multirotors (no brake, normal startup, no lipo cuttoff or any other protection, fast timing..etc) or you can just flash SimonK firmware that is made for Multirotor use and require no additional programming. I you don't know how to flash them yourself, you can purchase them pre-flashed here on HK (Afro Series) or on eBay. You will also need a Multirotor flight control board like the KK2 or Multiwii found in the flight controller category under Multirotors. There are many hundreds of setup and tutorial videos that can be found by doing a Google search for KK2 setup or Quadcopter setup if you need sme visual assistance. Good luck!

I am curious about flight times. Different batteries? Equipment load?
 MultiRotorManiac 2255 points
These motors are very efficient. With a 3s 2200mah I get around 14 min of flight and around 25 min with a 3s 5000mah. This is with no additional equipment (camera, fpv equipment..etc) so expect less than the figures mentioned with addital loads. I used 10x3.8 APC props and 30a SimonK flashed F-30A esc's (overkill for these motors. 18-20A esc's will work just as well and slightly lighter). Good luck and happy flying!

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.
