The Perfect foamie for FPV use, the Busy Bee not only has a large canopy and rear facing pusher motor mount as you would expect, it has several other features that make for an adaptable and practical FPV platform.
Although the motor mount is, as usual for an FPV model, in a pusher configuraion, this model has a good prop/boom clearance, meaning you are not limited to purely high kv motors, in fact a 9x5 prop is included. Also, the motor mount is a sturdy alloy, which will take a variety of motors. The model features 2 battery trays mounted under the fus, ideal for shifting your flight pack around for correct C of G, depending on the equipment fitted. Good size wheels & steerable nosewheel also add to the practicality, as does the band mounted wing, a lot of FPV platform, for not a lot of money, ideal for your 1st FPV model!

I had a bad experance with trying to achieve a decent flight..it would glide perfectly..climb slowley under power and changing cg. dident help..wing angle of attack dident help either...so i changed the whole concept alltogether i mounted the motor on the noise,lowered the wing down to the fuz and remodled the canopy...now flyes like a high performance glider...perfectly....by puting the motor on the front you will find a large nut moulded into the foam..disgard this...Package arrived with no external damage however horizontal stabiliser had been bent and is not airworthy. All other parts are ok. This does seem like a good value model and has heaps of space for FPV gear. Such a pity that there is dissapointing response to the resolution or replacement of the damaged part. Until this issue is resolved I cannot respond positively to purchasing via HobbyKing. Once this is resolved adn am flying I am happy to provide review of the aircraft.Vuela muy bien, es estable, muy buena perdida, desliza bien. Relativamente liviano funciona para FPV. es de los aviones mas baratos. Lo malo es el tren de aterrrizaje delantero( hay que reforzarlo), el motor poco potente y el montaje del motor.(Lo remplace por un motor de 1Kg de empuje. Muy jodido el encuentro del el ala con el motorIts made of very poor material. One harder landing and its done. I would not recommend it.Buen entrenador,con el motor atras,en los choques no se daa la hliceWell I got my B Bee from AU Warehouse Beautiful looking plane.
Box a little damaged but the plane in it's own box inside OK
the alerons need to be reset for thay go down but not up,
The main wing does not fit i have to do some cutting and mods to make it fit.
the front window is glued on so i have to cut it off to get the cam in.
Maybe PNF will be better than ARF.
I shall let you know more when i get it up in the air.
